The new owners of Mt. Waterman are fighting the good fight and trying to run the lifts whenever they can and I support them whenever the snow is good, the road is open and I'm not in Mammoth. There is a lot of history there and once the old ski resorts close, they don't get replaced (see, e.g., Disney and Mineral King)...some may think that's a good thing, but I don't.
That said, I sure liked the last few years when you could hike the PCT between Islip and Baden-Powell and not hear the incessant whine of motorcycles from miles away...

Most of which was wiped out by Angeles Crest Highway. Let it wither and die between Red Box and Big Pines. Give us back our mountains.
