Mammoth Mountain has had one hell of a season, but things are finally coming to a close. After 270 days, Mammoth Mountain's 2016-17 snowboard season will end on August 6.

There's still time for you to get a couple laps in, as Mammoth will still be open daily and running lifts until closing day. This is the second longest season on-record, spanning from November 10 through August 6th.

Throughout this season, Mammoth received 618" of snow at the Main Lodge, and over 800" at the summit. This was the second most snowfall the resort has ever received in its 65 years of operations.

Mammoth will open again for the 2017-2018 season on November 9th, just a 100 days after closing.
