Mammoth Ski Resort

Who says you need more than one hill? This truly ‘mammoth’ single mountain has it all, starting with fierce bowls and big views at 3,300m and finishing with beautifully groomed, easy greens through the woods, homeward bound. Add a few superb snow-parks and a town that’s loaded with fabulous restaurants, and Mammoth quickly becomes a firm favourite with many visitors.

Looming high and mighty, Mammoth mountain is one of North America’s greats. Trails at the top tend to be wide and open, whilst those lower down wind in and out of the trees. Those graduating from the nursery slopes will love the beautifully groomed green runs towards the bottom, and intermediates can cruise, carve and jump their way down long blues and steeper forest trails. Double-diamond territory dominates the mountain top, providing big thrills for experts.

Like its mountain, Mammoth is large and sprawling. Split into different areas, Canyon Lodge, Eagle Lodge and Main Lodge link straight to the slopes, whilst The Village, one gondola away from Canyon, is the prettiest area and attracts more people every year. Then there’s Mammoth Lakes, a small town in the woods with several good après-ski haunts, and a huge and mouth-watering choice of restaurants.

Often, as soon as the first snow storm has hit, the lifts are open, meaning that the season sometimes runs as long as October to June. With more advanced slopes sitting at the peak of the mountain, there is something for every ability of skier in Mammoth.
