Thanksgiving Vacations in Mammoth

Family of Skiers in Mammoth

There are 4 ways to spend Thanksgiving in Mammoth during the 4 days of the holiday. You choose! You can stay home and cook, you can ski and cook, you can ski and reheat or you can ski and go out. Let's explore those marvelous 4 options and find out the benefit of each!

If you're into family traditions, then you probably know already that Mammoth only has 7000 permanent residents and the rest are second homeowners or guests. For many of these, skiing at Thanksgiving is the first time their skis will hit the snow. Mammoth always has snow by Thanksgiving whether it is from Mother Nature or assisted by the grooming crew and Main Lodge is the place where it all happens. Hitting the snow early in the season gets one prepared for a super winter and puts a few days on that new season pass. Many people who come to Mammoth don't ski and Thanksgiving for them means stay in the Mammoth rental condo and cook. Like your parents did years ago, cooking a big meal is a tradition. Just in time for the holidays we added several new luxury properties that are sure to please.

Stonegate in Mammoth are custom residences right across the street from The Mammoth Village and walking distance to the Canyon Lodge gondola. These are very exclusive elusive log cabin style properties as most owners prefer not to rent theirs. So if you see one book it. Graystone at Sierra Star are singular free standing homes, tucked on the 16th fairway. They are one of a kind and large enough to hold 2 families. Over by Little Eagle and the Juniper Springs Resort is a small group of luxury condos in Mammoth called Juniper Crest. They are ski in out with a plowed trail. All of these new rental properties have all the creature comforts and therefore make great places to have your Thanksgiving dinner.

For others however, going out and skiing is the tradition. That's why they come to Mammoth to begin with. So skiing and then cooking after a few runs brings both back the memories and the smell of turkey in the house. For others, their Mom's weren't such great cooks so they would rather ski and go out and leave all the pots and pans to someone else. While both the stay home and cook, or go ski and then come home and cook options are interesting, either way, they're a lot of work.

Mammoth has long been known for its culinary artists who create masterpieces in our restaurants. For those who know, skiing and going out is the ideal way to get some relaxation and not have the pile of pans to do. The only you need to make is reservations, and we can help with the Mammoth Concierge Services. But there is still one more way to get the best of both worlds.

Skiing and getting take out turkey. Wait, I know it doesn't sound as memorable as Mom's dinner, but remember those chefs... They deliver! That's right, you can come to Mammoth, ski all day, and have your turkey dinner delivered right to your rental condo ready to go. It's the best of both worlds. You'll get your turkey, mashers, sweet potatoes, and all the trimmings and the only thing you'll have to wash up is your hands. There is also one other secret, but you have to plan ahead. Vons! - Yes Vons - the local supermarket makes an absolutely fabulous heat and serve Thanksgiving Dinner and it serves 4-6 people for only $39.00 and be sure to order it ahead of time. No mess, no clean up and lots of leftovers for sandwiches the next day. And the house smells wonderful.

So what are you waiting for? Don't be a turkey, come to Mammoth and eat one! Come plan that Thanksgiving holiday in Mammoth. And check out our Mammoth specials that make the trip a little bit more cost effective too! We're here to help and offer many services that you might also want to take advantage of.
