On our Saturday skiing/snowboarding, the snow at the summit was choppy with some slopes closed. We had a great day, but often long lift lines. Leaving after the lifts closed at 4 pm put us into an epic traffic jam on the two lane road down the mountain that lasted for more than an hour. On Sunday, all the lifts... More

Great ski resort and mountain. Enough terrain options to fit all levels of skiers. It can be a bit of work trying to get from one side of the mountain to the other, no easy traverse iis available but you can tire yourself out over a week of skiing Mammoth.

When the snow is plentiful this mountain is the best bang for your buck and time. Multiple runs meet most ski/board levels. It's as fun as you make it when the snow is more like ice.

I've been coming to Mammoth Mountain for over 20 years. It has the best world class skiing in the country, if not the world. I was there during the extremely busy MLK Holiday weekend. That said, even though there were unusually large crowds in town, the mountain didn't seem crowded because it is so large and spread out. Also, knowing... More

Saturday, January 14 (Saturday) Let me begin by saying I haven't been to Mammoth in over 3 years. We happened to come during MLK weekend and after the storm of the decade so I expected it to be crowded. No problem - just as long as I'm with my friends and having a great time right? Our journey began at... More

Being from LA we go to Mammoth a couple of times a year during kids' winter breaks and holiday weekends. We just got back from MLK weekend and the conditions were amazing. There are many types of trails and terrains so it's great for all types of skiers. The downsides are crowds and winds. On holiday weekends and winter breaks... More

As my family and I had never had once opportunity to skiing, and considering that we have two little ones (8 and 6), we decided to only see what the "Mountain" has to offer. Several types of food for eating and giant hill for snowboarding and skiing. Who knows for the next visiting? If you do Snow sports, and never... More

Even though Saturday was extremely crowded (MLK WE), we were enjoying a couple feet fresh powder, 3 bluebird days in a row.

I visited mammoth for the first time this weekend and it is great! The mountains and trees and beautiful. There is something for everyone. My husband loves skiing. I took a cross country ski lesson and snow shoe tour.

This was our first time skiing at Mammoth and it is a fantastic place. We were there during one of the busiest weeks of the year (12/26-1/2) and there were no crowds. Friendly staff in yellow jackets were everywhere and eager to give advice or direction. It was all organized like a clockwork. Above all, the mountain is beautiful, snow... More
