The views from on top of Mammoth Mountain is amazing. There is a nice gondola ride to the top. There is also a world class mountain bike trail on Mammoth Mountain for summer pleasure. In the winter of course, skiing Mammoth Mountain is awesome. We have enjoyed visiting this area frequently.

The quaint little village, and the great shops! I also enjoyed a ride in a gondola, for free! We stopped for some hot chocolate, and had crepes. Later,we found the bar, and listed to a little music, while we had an Irish coffee.

The past few years have been hurting on the snow but Mammoth does... More

I can only review for our summer stay but hope to experience during winter. There's lots of activities and we came here for hiking. Though the fee for going up the Gondola seems a little expensive unless you have plans on hiking the trail from the mountain. But if you are just going for the view, its a little steep... More

Take the gondola up and hike down! The view is spectacular. Hike to the side of the runs so you don't get run over by bikes, they come down pretty fast. The dogs loved it!

The gondola ride up is worth the $25. The views are outstanding! It was fun to watch the bikers racing down as we were slowly gliding up. The views from the top are beautiful. Our day was clear with blue skies that went on forever.

I've taken the gondola many times to the top of Mammoth Mountain, which is used heavily in the summer by mountain bikers. The views from the top are very scenic; the area is quite large and you can walk around and get views of many of the trailheads that you would take around Mammoth Lakes. The gondola ride is fun....

I went there to try mountain biking. It was pretty good, but the weather didn't cooperate. When it finally broke, I had a blast. But what made it even better were two of the staffers there. Brittany where I got tickets and Jason on the Gondola were so helpful and great. Made the visit perfect, and got me to stay... More

Excellent for the entire family from toddlers to grandparents, I nice walk out to the view point, with a staff guide to inform you of the geology and to identify the lakes and mountains of the area. You can mountain bike down the Mountain or hike down to Devils Post Pile, or have a decent lunch with great views and... More
