Video courtesy of Mammoth Mountain

Dave McCoy may be 98 years old, but the Mammoth Mountain founder has barely slowed down. While working as a Los Angeles city hydrographer 60 years ago, McCoy made it his mission to build a ski resort in a town that had only 6 year-round residents. This video offers a quick glimpse into the man, the myth, and the legend: Mr. Dave McCoy.
