“Not skiing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

We were told that the top was closed before we bought the tickets, but NOT that there were no views, and nothing to do at the half way station. It's not the end of the world, but very expensive for a 30 minute up and back trip with nothing to do.

I suspect the trip to the top would have been worth it though, we just needed clearer explanation that there was NOTHING at the halfway point apart from a cafe.

“Gondola”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

We did the scenic gondola and the views were wonderful. It was off season with some spring spiking going on, so lots of things were closed there. It was worth it for the views.

we loved it, a ride to the top, took pics and watch skiers and snowboarders leap from the 11,000 ft peak - WOW!

64 degrees in parking lot, 40 degrees and windy on the top - take a jacket, binoculars and a video ro catch the young ones on the halfpipe.....away they go!

Not too many souvenor sops though :-(.

Premium outlets though :-)

“Beautiful in the snow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Quaint little town, along with snow covered mountains made this a very pleasant trip, along with the side tours to see the different sites around the caldera area, it was a pleasant trip.

“Mammoth Means Huge and It Is”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

The snow was spring snow. The temperatures were perfect for "T" shirt skiing. You'd have to be here for a week to ski every run. There's something for every level of skier.
