Mammoth Mountain Ski Area


Ski on a volcano! Mammoth Mountain, an 11,053-foot-high volcanic peak perched on the southwest rim of the Long Valley caldera, is one of the prime skiing spots of the eastern Sierra. In an average season, their downhill ski slopes (30,000 feet in total) are open from November to May. Cross-country skiing, snowboarding, and other winter recreational activities are available, too. In summer, the slopes become prime mountain bike runs. The resort's proximity to other local attractions makes it a great base of operations for any visit to Mammoth Lakes. Even those who don't ski can take the gondola up to the summit of Mammoth Mountain for the great Sierra vistas. There are four day lodges, ten sports shops, twelve rental/repair shops, two on-hill snack bars and four food courts/cafeterias. Ski schools are available for all levels, as well as special schools for children and teens, and day care is available. Mammoth Mountain Inn, located near the main lodge, and a number of other hotels and condominiums provide overnight accommodations. For ski conditions, call 888-766-9778.
