Mammoth Art Park

While most folks are gazing longingly toward summertime, some of us snow junkies are holding onto the last glimpses of winter on the mountaintops. In California, Mammoth ski area is always the last bastion of snow terrain (they close in July), and this year they boast a maker-y feature to check out: the Mammoth Art Park with giant sculptures, paintings, rails, and boxes you can snowboard and ski on. They combined 8270 pounds of steel, 206 feet of rail, 1880 square feet of plywood, and the work of 44 artists to create a terrain park with tons of eye candy. Can’t wait to check it out!

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.

    Everyone knows about Picasso’s “Blue Period” but the Art Park looks like a product from a lesser known “White Period” because it features art you can view and jib on! The first of its kind, it’s testament to Mammoth’s ability to continually redefine the terrain park.

    My friend lives in San Rafael California and he told me that he haven’t seen snow yet and he actually told me that he’d be visiting this place some time. I am quite excited because he’d be showing me some pictures for sure.
