A Mammoth storm clears into bluebird skies and a silken blanket of snow.

One of the first snowboarders to get off of Chair 5 after a major storm at Mammoth. Upper runs are still under avalanche control and untouched. The majestic rocks are covered in a blanket of snow and the trees are frosted in white.
