Here’s a look at what we’re working on with the Mammoth Mountain archives.
In mid-December, we picked up a room full of old 3/4″ Umatic tape, 16mm reels, and 35mm slides, documenting the history of Mammoth Mountain, and we’re working on converting it all into a digital archive. The mountain had already digitized some of it, which we’ve had a blast sorting through since we picked it up. There are hours of great footage and we’re excited to put it together for the blog.
The footage we’ve seen so far starts in the late 40s’, before Chair 1 was built at Main Lodge. It goes through the mid 90s’, so there are 50 years covered. I think it’s going to be a great way to reflect back on our time up there, as well as to understand how Mammoth became what it is today.
Enjoy the teaser. We’re still trying to figure out a good format to deliver it all in here. I think we may do some sort of weekly video-blog, or it may be bi-monthly. The first matter of business will be to categorize it and we’ll move forward from there.
Enjoy the trailer and have a great Christmas.
