#MammothStories with Dave McCoy — the birth of Mammoth Mountain

Dave McCoy, Mammoth Mountain’s founder, tells the story of how Mammoth Mountain got its start. Dave was an LA city hydrographer who saw Mammoth and made it his mission 60 years ago, when there were only 6 people in Mammoth, to build what is now Mammoth Mountain. He’s 98, but still very much a force of nature.
