According to the LA Times, Shaun White recently purchased a minority stake in Mammoth Resorts. While they would not reveal exact details, Rusty Gregory, CEO of Mammoth Resorts said White made a "Seven-Digit" investment.

Gregory states that White will assist in revamping the resorts into innovative mountains for "young snow enthusiasts", including an addition of more year-round activities. White plans to be actively involved in the development and future of the resorts-- giving back to the mountain where he both learned and perfected his abilities.

Shaun's investment will give him the opportunity to oversee the operation of 4,000 skiable acres, which are visited by over 2 million skiers and boarders each year.

"The only potential drawback of the tie between Mammoth and White is if the snowboarder does something illegal or controversial," stated Mark Francis, a sports business lecturer at the UCLA Anderson Center for Management of Enterprise in Media, Entertainment and Sports.
