39 underprivileged children from Los Angeles and Las Vegas recently visited Mammoth Mountain as part of the After School All Stars, an organization founded by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The kids arrived at Mammoth last Friday and spent two days participating in outdoor activities including mountain biking, geocaching, gondola rides and hikes to Rainbow Falls and Devils Postpile National Monument. The Mountain also treated the kids to a special banquet with a career panel of Mammoth Mountain employees of all levels as the guest speakers. The panelists spoke about their career paths and what their jobs entail.
The Mountain also provided lodging, ground transport, mountain bike rentals, gondola rides and group- meals.
The After School All Stars program serves 80,000 youth every year. In fact, a large group joined Governor Schwarzenegger last winter for a snow activity visit.
