It was not so easy to find detailed instructions for hikers who want to climb the Mammoth Mountain, especially from less popular SE side, so I've decided to share my experience from the trip in June 2016. Below a handful of practical tips for those who want to reach the summit – using rather their feet, instead of a cable... More

And once there, the short (if windy and cool!) hike to the lookout point was spectacular. A definite must-do in summer time. And if you want to fly down on a mountain bike or hike one of many trails, that's an option, too!

We came here in the summer and there was still snow on top of the mountain! We were here in the snow then drove down to Death Valley and we were in 49 degree heat a few hours later... Amazing. The views on top of here were possibly the best I have ever seen.. The cable ride up was fun... More

Great view, average food. Don't go if you are scared of heights Need a jacket even when it's hot down the bottom of the mountain.

Visited this mountain after hiking up the mountain view trail and it was well worth it. We used the panoramic gondolas to reach the summit which gave amazing 360 deg views of the surrounding vistas Cost was $39 which included a meal at the summit cafe, after our hike we were ready for it, price without a meal was $29...

Went thru on our way to yosemite we stayed at Best Western High Sierra. Only had one night but had a good time. Went on the gondola and it was awesome. It was windy which made it a little unnerving going 11,000 ft but fun.

As a local, I know the ski terrain is among the best in the country but the MMSA is one of the worst run businesses in the ski industry. Old time managers won't retire and keep the "good old boy" mentality alive. They need a buyer like Vail Associates to take over.

I went to Mammoth for a repeat trip in April, and the snow was good for spring conditions. Mammoth has excellent terrain variety as well. Main negatives were numerous incidents with skiers/snowboarders resting and standing in the middle of runs. Lifts operators are typically excellent, but on this trip they were inattentive at times: texting while riders were boarding the... More

There are 2 places to grab a bite near the reception desk at the hotel. I didnt see either listed on trip advisor. One is the gift shop, where you can get cheap but good breakfast rolls, coffee, breakfast burritos. The other is the grill, above the very visible dual staircase as you walk into the lobby of the hotel.... More

Why doesn't every ski resort do this in the summer. A range of trails for every ability and easy access via both gondola and chair lifts for rider and bike make this the best mountain biking I've come across
