Hi, we are looking at ski-ing in Mammoth over xmas/NY 2013/2014 travelling with kids (2 and 4 yro) from Australia. Wondering if you would help with a couple of questions. We (as in parents!) are reasonable ski-iers having skied in Japan, Canada & NZ (as well as Oz):
1. is the snow reasonable\y good at that time of year?
2. Given we have kids, any recommendations for accommodation (we probably won't have a car as will fly into Mammoth) so want somewhere close to the ski-fields to save lugging kids and gear about.
3. do you know if there is childcare (for 2yro?) and your impressions on quality etc.
4. do they lessons for 4 yro?
Thanks for your time. look forward to hearing from you
