It was a celebrated week in California as ski resorts began to open their slopes for the winter season. For some, that means hopefully another long winter of beautiful mountain ski runs in the Sierra Nevada mountain range. For others, it could mean dealing with some crazy ski crowds.
A video was recently shared on Twitter showing “absolute mayhem” on the slopes of Mammoth Mountain during opening weekend. Check it out:
For anyone feeling frustrated by this video, no need. This was the first mountain to open this winter and it had limited terrain, meaning all the people excited to hit the slopes met on one run during the busy weekend.

Okay, enough of the negativity. Let’s get back to the winter stoke! Happy ski season NorCal!
