Beacon Basin is Back!

The Beacon Basin avalanche transceiver training park at Mammoth Mountain is back in operation. It is located between Lower St. Moritz and Lower Jills Run. It is accessible without a lift pass by walking up from the parking lot. We struggled to keep it open due to the big storms most of the season, but we're going to give it a go again. After a successful, safe season practicing route finding, communication and snow assessment skills, now is the time to tune up those companion rescue skills. Please remember to sign in at the control box and be mindful of the antenna inside the white/orange pvc pipe (it's fragile!) If you have questions, comments, concerns please check in at the Main Lodge Ski Patrol Office.

Thanks,

Mammoth Mountain Ski Patrol
