Mammoth Mountain founder and pioneer of Eastern Sierra skiing Dave McCoy turns 100 today. McCoy toiled for decades to turn a Forest Service permit into a ski area, then a full-fledged resort, and eventually a worldwide destination. Roma McCoy, Dave's wife, celebrated her 95th on Aug. 12. To honor its founders, Mammoth Mountain has put together a short edit of their story and some photos from the ski area's early days.
