A Day of Celebration in Honor of Dave McCoy

Friday, February 28, 2020  |  8:15am–5:30pm

Join us on Friday, February 28 as we host a day of skiing and celebration in honor of Dave McCoy. This day is for everyone, focused on what Dave loved most – skiing.

He saw a story on Mammoth Mountain, so he built his own skis and lifts — defying the odds to share his love for skiing and his wonder for the wilderness with the people. We thank him for over 100 years of smiles, friendships and deep turns.

We will be extending operating hours to 5pm on select lifts and offering free lift tickets* starting at 3pm for those without a lift ticket or Ikon Pass. Scenic Gondola Rides* will be free all day, Friday, February 28. Memory boards will be placed at The Village, Canyon Lodge, Main Lodge and McCoy Station for friends, family, guests and employees to share a memory or a note of thanks. At 5:15pm everyone will gather slopeside at Main Lodge for speeches from Dave's family, friends and co-workers. 

Parking shuttle and Red Line from the Main Lodge will have extended operating hours until 7pm on Friday, February 28 to support the event.
