Mammoth Mountain ski area is the leading four-season mountain resorts in California. With 1.3 million annual skier visits, Mammoth Mountain is currently the third most frequented ski resort in the United States.
Boasting 28 lifts, 3,500 acres of terrain, six terrain parks, and two halfpipes, it's not hard to see why Mammoth is listed as an official USSA training ground home to some of the best freestyle skiers and snowboarders in the world.
While Mammoth has proved itself a choice competition venue by playing host to the USSA Grand Prix series for a number of seasons, 2015/16 marked the first time the resort held World Cup competition.
And while weather took it's toll on last season's event, incredible work by the Mammoth team ensured we were able to get results in all competitions. With another stacked weekend of freeski and snowboard halfpipe and slopestyle competitions scheduled to take to Mammoth's famous superpipe and Unbound terrain park from February 1-4, 2017, we're looking forward to again bringing FIS Freestyle World Cup competition to one of the world's most hollowed grounds for winter sport progression.

The bad weather never let up in Mammoth despite the best efforts of all involved men's finals were cancelled while ladies' results were based off a single run.
With the second day in a row of quality weather greeting athletes on Thursday morning, halfpipe qualifiers at the Mammoth Mountain Grand Prix/World Cup went off without a hitch, and at the end of the day Ayana Onozuka (JPN) and Gus Kenworthy (USA) lead their respective ladies' and men's fields.
