Mammoth Mountain, Mammoth Lakes

With an average of 300 days of sunshine per year, Mammoth Mountain provides a great setting for activities ranging from skiing to snowboarding to hiking. With 360-degree views of over 600 km (370 mi) of high-altitude peaks, the mountain boasts the highest summit of any California resort. Choose from a number of different runs that cater to all snowboarding levels. You can sign up for classes at the ski and snowboarding school at the resort, where they also rent equipment. Take the gondola to the 3,300 m (11,000 ft) summit, where you'll discover eateries and lodging amenities. Hikers should be cautious of mountain bikers on the descent.

  • A really nice drive from LA...enjoyed being there in the shoulder season without the crowds and no traffic...Definitely a nice place to take the family  more »
  • Lovely place .... Beautiful .... Extraordinary natural beauties, will return in the summer to enjoy the Lakes. Has two locations to skyar, has shops to rent appropriate clothing, several lakes with incredible views, Mammonth Lakes is in the center of California. We left Las Vegas, through the Valley of death and follow the road, our option is Iosemith, to the forest, the road was closed because of the snow. Then the GPS only gave that route, we stopped at Mammonth, was so beautiful that we decided to stay 3 days and were incredible. Residents, gave incredible tips, small town, few tourists can find strange visitors (and even Brazilians, kkk). Pambs wonderful hot foods and an amazing hot chocolate.
