Skier’s right of the Panorama Gondola just steps from the Mammoth sign where tourists and newbies take selfies is the famed Climax bowl.
Steep and deep and insight of Gondola onlookers it’s a Glory line and not to miss on pow day.
A number of entry points exist along the ridge to access Climax, which can vary depending on the season and snow conditions.
Pick your way through the upper steeps and rocks until you find a line that can carry through to the bowl.
There are even a few drops to air off of if the snowpack cooperates.
