Bragging Rights: Mammoth Gets Most Snow in the World!
You know what rhymes with "bragging rights" (mostly)? SNOWBALL FIGHTS! Up at Mammoth, this recent weather system has left a dumping of snow on the resort and town, and today it's official: Mammoth is "the ski resort with the most snow in the world," per The Beach Blog. Skiinfo.com tracks resorts around the globe, and Mammoth tops the charts right now with a 488cm snow depth. The popular ski and snowboard destination has already passed their own record for the snowiest December since 1969, and now, well, total world domination is theirs. Now hit the slopes!
