Mammoth Mountain Ski Area, just West of Yosemite National Park, is the tallest resort in the Sierras measured by continuous vertical descent (at 2885'). It's well-known for its three half-pipe sizes, including a 22' "Super-Duper" Pipe, but also for lots of skiiable terrain, lots of vertical, lots of lifts, lots of snow, and amazing views of the Sierras. This model includes the whole skiiable area, which is an amazing four miles East-to-West, from The Hemlocks all the way to Eagle Lodge, and two and a half miles North-to-South, from Mammoth Mountain Inn down to Dragon's Tail.

TinyMtn models are most affordable in the "Sandstone" and "White Strong and Flexible" materials. This model is in "Sandstone," which is a glued gypsum material. When you receive the model it will be ready for display, though it may smell funny and need some time to air out. "Sandstone" models are much more brittle than "White Strong and Flexible" models, but feel more like light stone. Do not soak it in water, though you can safely seal it with Polycrylic or a similar water-based clear spray sealant. Read more about this popular material here
