With 360-degree views of over 600 km (370 mi) of high-altitude peaks, the mountain boasts the highest summit of any California resort.

  • Went over this Holiday weekend After waiting in the LONGEST lift lines I have ever experienced and after spending over 300$ with 0 runs in get told whole MT was closed due to High Winds ( totally understand Mother Nature sometimes happens) but then get told they can’t compensate me at all!!!! This is a Joke ! They basically robbed me I have Never seen anything like this and have been boarding over 10 years! Be mindful of this resort and beware they are NOT a MT for the people ! Overrated and Overpriced!
  • One word - EPIC. This mountain is YUGE!! Tons of terrain, awesome parks, and excellent aprés ski. We stayed mountain side at a ski-in ski-out hotel and had an incredible weekend. They stay open sometimes into the early summer, if enough snow has fallen. There is an awesome town area just a quick shuttle ride from the base of the mountain too. They have lots of neat shops and a very cool brewery with great beers and fun games. If you are looking for an escape of the winter variety, this is it.
  • Mammoth is the best snow place to go to hike on and the best place to have a family time on
  • Nice size mountain and reachable from LA in about 5 hours. Snow is definitely hit or miss year-to-year, so check before you make the trip.
  • My husband & I lived in Mammoth & worked @ the Mammoth Ski Resort for the winter season 2007-2008. It was one of the best times of our lives!!!
