The top of Mammoth, and another peak that had some good steep runs off it.
A closer look at the Minarets, Mount Ritter, and Banner Peak. Scale is lost in this picture, but these peaks are very impressive in person.

Snowy trees, mountains to the south, and Kate & Steve.
Megan staying a comfortable distance from the edge.
On our first day it snowed continuously and when we came back to the car after skiing, it was buried in snow. In the village, snow was piled as high as the houses with driveways surrounded by walls of snow 10-20 feet high.
Lake Mary from Mammoth.
Our cabin, buried in snow, and the tunnel to the door.
Our view through the windows was of snow, and one morning we awoke to 2-3 feet of fresh snow in the doorway.
Nearby Crystal Crag.
A trail near the cabins.
I wandered around the trails near the cabins one evening and ran into some friendly skiers who were hiking up this mountain to do some backcountry powder skiing. I hiked with them for a bit but had to quit and return home before someone reported me as missing.
I believe this is Mount Tom, just outside of Mammoth.
The Sierra Nevada range near Mount Whitney.
