TEAM TALLUS TAKES 3RD AT THE MAMMOTH INVITATIONAL
April 18th, 2012 by Tallus
The Fourth Annual Mammoth Invitational event was this weekend, April 12-15, 2012, brought together proud Mammoth natives and elite international skiers in celebration of the mountains’ efforts to support the community and its children. Activities included the Biathlon race, Heroes + Kids afternoon, a silent auction valued at over $1,000,000, and the Family Fun Cup Race. 32 inches of fresh snow prepared the attendees for a promising week of top-notch skiing, while supporting the Mammoth Mountain Community Foundation (MMCF).
The Mammoth Invitational is the signature event and major funding source for the MMCF, whose mission is to connect the extended Mammoth community, two children at a time, through support of education, athletics, and outdoor activities.

Mammoth Invitational climaxed during the auction, when a special Chamonix ski trip with Plake sold for over $61,000. While the lucky winners (TALLUS owners Rob Mitchell and Chad Horning) undoubtedly purchased the trip of a lifetime, no one lost site of the facts that the generous donation will support the MMCF and benefit hundreds of young athletes.
