There’s been a slew of season extensions this week, from Aspen Mountain adding a bonus weekend to A-Basin announcing they will keep the lifts turning through June 12. But Mammoth has trumped everyone with the announcement that they will remain open daily through July 4.
Mammoth’s 361 inches of snow and 130-inch base at the summit are to thank for the long season. Starting on June 6th operating hours will shift to 7:30 am to 1:00 pm to take advantage of the best conditions.
We are ready to purchase the tickets for Diana Ross at The Hollywood Bowl for Saturday, July 16. We have 24 tickets at $45 each. This includes Zankou Chicken and dessert. Bring your own drink. The first 24 people that send checks to the Arriba Post Box will get the seats.
We will meet at the Picnic area before the show for dinner; 6:00pm. The concert starts at 8:00pm.
Send your checks to:

Arriba is in the early planning stages of a return to Yosemite in June 2017.
In the past, the trip was a 3 night trip on the first weekend of June with the first night at Wawona Lodge (4 miles past South Entrance) and the next two nights at Yosemite Lodge (on the valley floor). We are implementing a couple of changes to the trip from how it has been in the past. First, we are planning on having the trip occur later in the month to accommodate those in the Education profession and are tied to the school year (tentative dates are June 15-17, 2017). Second, we are considering changing the trip to a 4 night trip. So we need your feedback on the following three options:
1) Are planning on going on the trip in 2017 (This is one of the best Arriba trips, if you have never been)
2) if you prefer a 3-night or 4-night trip
3) if you prefer a 4- night trip, would you prefer to stay two nights in Wawona and two nights at Yosemite Lodge OR one night in Wawona and 3-nights at Yosemite Lodge
Around Wawona are the Mariposa Groves, Golf Course, and Logging Train and at Yosemite Lodge you have access to all the Yosemite Valley has to offer.
Please reply as soon as possible. Your response will help us gauge the general interest level and give us a rough idea of how many rooms we need to reserve.
