It’s that time of year when you’re browsing the Buyer’s Guide trying to find next year’s ride and itching for it to start snowing. We thought we’d tease you with some 1996 flashack footage of early season action at California resorts in Mammoth, Tahoe and Big Bear.

Featuring Chris Engelsman, Jay Rehbein, Randy Gaetano, Jason Brown, and Hillary Maybery.
