Mammoth Mountain opens early and some years doesn't close until the fourth of July. Mammoth Mountain has added snow making to the top of its highest peak (more than 11,000 feet) and down the Cornice Run. Mammoth Mountain is exactly what its name implies: Big. Ok, so how big is it? 3,500 acres to play on, a vertical drop of 3,100 feet, access to lift skiing at 11,053 feet, 156 trails and 28 chair lifts (9 of which are high-speed zappers). There are an average of 300 days of sunshine a year here. The Lincoln House and White Mountain Lodge are a village gondola ride away and offer luxury condos from studios to three bedrooms. Full service hotels, convenient motels, luxury condominiums, quaint chalets, cozy cabins, and even dormitory style lodging are all located in the town of Mammoth Lakes, only 4 miles from the ski area.

Recensioni dei visitatori di Mammoth Mountain
James Paris da United States scrive:
Mammoth is a mountain of extremes, both good and bad. It covers a huge area with multiple exposures, but the terrain basically breaks down into mostly super-steep snowfields above mid station and easy, rolling tree lined trails below midstation. Consequently, most runs fall in the 1200-1300 vertical foot range.
It gets lots of snow in big dumps, but the fresh stuff gets skied out quickly because there are so many people on the hill and so many high capacity lifts. Another negative is the powerful SoCal sun and proximity to the desert, which softens the snow surface quicker than the resorts in Colorado, Utah and even Tahoe. As a result, a groomed piste gets skied up quickly and the snow surface can get choppy by early afternoon. However, the snow on the upper mountain is protected from the sun and it usually is colder and drier up there…so the steep runs off the gondola almost always have great snow.
The mountain hasn’t expanded since the 1980’s but nearly all the double chairs have been replaced with fast quads. Lines are not a problem but crowded slopes are very much a problem on weekends. On-mountain dining is sub-par for a destination resort. Best option is to ski over to the Mammoth Mountain Inn.
Lodging in town is mostly mediocre motels. There is a high-end Westin that’s nice, but has commensurately high prices. I am a fan of the 1950’s era Mammoth Mountain Inn, which is slopeside and offers decent prices.
Bottom line: Mammoth has some of the best steep snowfields in the country. But it’s still an LA weekend escape resort. There are better choices if you are l traveling cross country looking for a destination resort.
