MAMMOTH MOUNTAIN SKIING

Mammoth skiing is fantastic! If you love to ski or snowboard in Mammoth, then Mammoth Mountain is the place. Set in beautiful Mammoth Lakes this little known ski resort is first class. Rated consistently in the top ten, it is now more convenient thanks to the air service. They gave the mountain the name "Mammoth" for a reason. It is huge! The beauty of the Sierra Nevadas when covered in fluffy white snow lifts your spirits so high, its like a song from John Denver. And Mammoth is known for the most important aspect of skiing and boarding... it snows! And a lot.

There are so many trails, that from any one point, you can't even see them all. With three base lodges, there are plenty of places to start your adventures.

Mammoth is one of the nation's largest winter resorts in size, and at times it's the nation's busiest, with more than 14,000 skiers and riders swooping over its slopes on an average weekend, but nary a lift line.
