It's over folks - the US ski season of 16/17 is officially over. Mammoth Mountain, the last ski resort going strong, has stopped its lifts. NEW

Mammoth Mountain, California had 270 days of shredding this year.

And there's less than 100 days until the first day of next season.

It will all kick off again on 9th November.

Not bad at all.

In August!

Rain fell on the snow on Saturday 5th August, but was left intact for its closing day.

Beautiful weather graced the last day and riders were in t-shirts and shorts.

It's a one-of-a-kind opportunity to be able to ski through to 6th August and spirits were high:
