 I see so many folks hating on CA, how people from CA are ruining their towns, their trails etc. So guess what...c’mon out to Mammoth we welcome everyone and hope you have a great time.

 I actually like all the California transplants I know but I would never say that publicly for fear of getting my Oregon citizenship revoked

 Haha truth! It’s always funny when other states complain about outsiders(CA) moving in. It’s like how do you think Californians have felt when their state population increased by literally millions in 90s to 2000s.

 @havroski: Honestly, I just complain about all of the Q Anon supporters moving to Idaho and then driving their lifted trucks downtown for a Trump parade. Yes, that is also people already here as well.

Overall, I don't really care if Californians move here to the extent that I understand why they are. Housing prices are nuts though.

 Dude, it’s exhausting. I moved from CA to CA and no one seems to want to share or play nice. Oh well they don’t have a choice otherwise.

 Hell yeah. Mammoth area and people are awesome and they have an excellent Emergency Room team at Mammoth Hospital. I am a happy customer. What is a shame, as far as I know, is that the resort has no Race Director. Please find a way to bring back the Gravity Games or at least the DH series or the MegaKami or even the basic Kamikaze DH. I'll even do the Enduro again. I will def be there for riding this season. It's a great trip from the Bay Area - crossing the Sierra is epic. Long Live Mammoth Bike Park.

 @havroski: Amen. Adding some irony is the fact that those complaining about CA expats are also likely trannys themselves and their friends/family are the ones driving native Californians out.

 @suspended-flesh: are Friday night races not a thing anymore? It's been a long time since I worked there but they used to be good fun. Keith is the man

 As a native Californian I hope that the people who left this state don't allow the same issues to follow them.

 @Jimmy0: Hopefully they are. There were Weds night races for the locals, too, right? I never got do do those, not being a local. They need someone onsite to coordinate with race series promoters like the GRT tour or even the CES. For all I know there will be racing there at a national level again this year. Regardless, I look forward to a couple long weekends there at least. Camping at Twin Lakes or the back country, getting some 4Wheeling in, too....Volcanic wonderland.

 @havroski: I lived in Chico during the 90's. Pete Wilson was the governor. It was mass exodus. every state employee was getting a pink slip. Everyone was heading North. Nobody was coming to California except from over the boarder at TJ's. Id say, double check your history.

 @calarco68: Multiple tech booms have sucked in people from all over the world, too.
  • 3 2
 @calarco68: I just did a double-check. According to google, California had 29 million people in 1990, we currently have 39 million. 37 of those million by 2010.

 @havroski: thats a huge influx. I remember going to CSUC and governor Wilson raised our tuition by 40% in 1990. So like suspended-flesh says the tech sector took off at the end of the 90's into 2000. raising residential real estate to amazing numbers.

 @iantmcg: In Oregon that's a paddlin'! Haha. It was my experience that there were two type of transplants from California--the type that moved to Oregon because it *wasn't* California, and those who moved to Oregon because it was cheaper but complained that it wasn't enough like California. Saw a number of Californians not be able to hack 7-8 months of rain and leave. If they had been there for more than 2 years it seemed like they were a good fit anyway. Cool people are cool, no matter where ya came from.

 Its kinda true though, but only non experienced bikers

 @havroski: Precisely... the "CA Transplants" are actually east coast etc etc transplants to Ca who then transplanted elsewhere.

 @HB208: that’s interesting. I lived in Boise for 6 years. The amount of times I was told we don’t like Californians because of their left wing politics. “Don’t bring that shit here.”
  • 3 0
 @havroski: I've lived here for 20. I think the pandemic has pushed a lot of conservatives out of Cali and into states like Idaho, Texas, etc. I have yet to meet someone who is "liberal" who moved here from Boise in the last year or two. They have all been very conservative types looking to leave CA. Ada county voted red for the first time I can remember. I am sure it has happened before, but I don't remember it happening since I was old enough to really follow politics (200Cool .

 What's more slippery, snow or kitty litter?
  • 11 0
 Kitty litter grips, can confirm.
  • 11 0
 Wet pumice is my jam.

 @rarrity: Grips nrips! Once u get a feel for it, the kitty litter can be amazing to ride in. Forgiving,and regulates your speed well. I’m not sure exactly how but kitty litter can transform what might look like a giant hole into a corner u just smash. It’s like in n out of the hole like it’s a corner, no brakes and the bike just kinda does it on its own. Plus 80 miles if trail in the park? Many more miles of trail in mammoth area? Place is gonna be nuts this summer!! Getting emotional just thinking about it now

 @scvkurt03: Wet pumice is like velcro concrete, absolutely the best

 They’ll first open the lower parts of the mountain that melts off sooner than Main Lodge and the uppermost trails.

 kitty litter is awesome, put your hips into it and it feels like skiing powder. Also, air up your tires by a couple of PSI helps too.

 @BillT999: Yep. Had a few rare wet training days on the Kamikaze before race day many moons ago and average speeds were up about 5mph.

 Bummed they have done away with the so cal pass that was good at mammoth and summit.

 This comment convinced me to buy a mammoth pass.

 It always cracks me up how ski resorts waste so much diesel fuel getting snow moved around so trails can melt out earlier then they turn around and close a month before the snow sets back in in the fall. I get it though, some years snow comes early and it isn’t really fair to ask employees to stay until mid October when there is a chance snow shuts things down in September.

 I can't wait to ride in the smoke this year! I'm betting fire season starts around the same time as opening day.

 Thankfully pumice is a very soft rock. More than once I’ve gotten a rock stuck between my stanchion and brace with zero scratches.

 Any idea what day passes will run? 350 for a season pass is pretty reasonable considering the cost for a day pass for skiing is 109 to reserve the day.

 I think they were around $60 last summer.

 Low snow year out there?
  • 4 0
 Yep. Though we just got 2 feet over the last two days to at least make the remaining ski season a little more tolerable.

 We are at about 30% of normal.
  • 1 2
 @carym: 60% is double that of 30 dude
  • 1 0
 @scvkurt03: and the 30% you did get basically came all in one week.
I miss those big storms..

 @rallyimprezive: It was very lit that one week.

 Good news, but also not so great for the Sierra snowpack.

 Not a good snow year at all.
  • 1 0
 @suspended-flesh: It's been good in the PNW. My local resort is at like 140% of normal snowpack.

 @HB208: Y'all are a lot wetter up there. This is really a desert that had a few thousand wet years and is slowly returning to that state. I'm not a Global Warming denier, I say this in addition to GW and its wacky weather patterns.
  • 2 0
 @suspended-flesh: l live in Boise... we are certainly a desert most of the year. We just get solid winter storms, but not as solid as here Utah, Northern Idaho, and Montana
  • 3 0
 @HB208: Oh OK, when I think of the PNW I tend to think of the extreme PNW - dripping ferns, mist, and rain.

 But are they gonna run Canyon Express this year????

 You guys should do a how to not look like a complete jerry podcast/video
For example not wearing that detachable bell helmet
