When Dave McCoy retired from Mammoth Mountain Ski Area after spending more than 50 years building the resort from the ground up, he turned to photography as his next adventure. In the 1930’s, Dave started using a Leica camera to document the early days of Mammoth. Upon his departure from the ski resort, Dave’s close friends gave him a camera that defined his post-management years and gave his passion for life a new outlet. Dave is a longtime motorcycle enthusiast, bike rider and backpacker. At 95 years old, Dave, accompanied by his wife Roma spends much of his time traversing the Eastern Sierra on a Rhino (all-terrain vehicle) shooting magnificent photographs.
           
Dave has been a long time benefactor furthering education and cultural enrichment in Mammoth Lakes, California.  A percentage of the proceeds from the exhibition will raise money for the Mammoth Lakes Foundation and Mammoth Ski & Snowboard Education Foundation.
