SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. â€” The Surfrider Foundation announced that it has partnered with Mammoth Mountain Ski Area to host a special member appreciation weekend.Â From Friday, April 8, through Sunday, April 10, Mammoth Mountain will offer a 25 percent discount on daily lift tickets to every adult skier or boarder who presents a valid Surfrider Foundation membership card.
â€œWe are thrilled to be partnering with Mammoth Mountain in helping to say â€˜Thank you!â€™ to our valued members,â€ says Matt McClain, Surfrider Foundationâ€™s Director of Marketing and Communications.Â Â
With over 400-plus inches of snowfall to date, Mammoth Mountain is experiencing one of the best seasons in the resortâ€™s history.Â In addition to providing a thrilling playground for skiers and snowboarders, the Eastern Sierra is one of the principle water sources for Southern California.
â€œA lot of the same snow that we ski and ride on during the winter, eventually makes its way into the ocean we surf in during the spring and summer,â€ says McClain.
In effort to support our coastal environments Mammoth Mountain is also donating $5 for every Surfrider Foundation ticket sold back to the Foundation.
â€œThe Surfrider Foundation is an outstanding organization doing important work,â€ says Mark Clausen, Chief Financial Officer for Mammoth Mountain.Â â€œHopefully this event will inspire even more people to join in the effort to protect our oceans and beaches.â€
