Mammoth Mountain, Mammoth Lakes Reviews

  • Love Mammoth Mountain! Could use more intermediate park features (no way I'm hitting the huge jumps, but the small ones are so small...) But other than that, great diversity of runs for our mixed-level group. Lots of long run options if that's what you're looking for. Some of my friends won't go to SoCal's Bear mountain anymore now that they've tasted Mammoth. :-P Pretty good shuttle system and you can get anywhere on the mountain via lifts and runs.

  • This is a cool place. Not that big compared to the all the other bigger resorts. The features are cool, though it'd be nice if they got smaller ones as well. The snow is good despite most of it being human made. People were really friendly.

  • Great ski resort! Large ski resort with fantastic runs of all levels. But overpriced lift tickets, services, rentals, food, and has the worst web site. The website is nice looking but it is very difficult to find the information you are looking for. Ex. finding lift ticket price on a calendar day takes way too many steps. Could not find price to rent a helmet or pole without renting everything. Can't find Tamarack cross country ski prices or conditions. Fantastic free bus service in town and to lifts.

  • One the best ski getaways in all of California. The place really is mammoth sized and wonderful. Also check out June Lake. Your lift ticket is good there too!

  • There is no better mountain and such a great village. Just want there to work and there broadcast satellite. Lots of new great things happening up there. You might even see yourself live on TV. Some the best skiing I have ever done some the best wide open runs. The staff is phenomenal and very welcoming
