Founded by Dave McCoy, who noticed that Mammoth Mountain consistently held more snow than other mountains. McCoy bought the rope tow from the local ski club in 1941. In 1953, the United States Forest Service awarded a permit to McCoy to operate the ski area, and the first ski lift was built in 1955.
The top of the mountain has challenging chutes and open mogul runs. There are eight Unbound terrain parks and many top professionals practice and compete in the world-famous 18 ft (5.5 m) Super Pipe and 22 ft (6.7 m) Super-Duper Pipe. There are only a handful of Super-Duper pipes in the world.
