Mammoth for New Years - Location recommendations?

Looking to go to Mammoth for NYE thru that Sunday with 10 folks or so. Have never been before. Looking to rent a house in an area that's not too far from the slopes and bars. Anywhere I should NOT stay? Wouldn't mind staying in a private area if there's just a short drive. THANKS.

Wow, that's kind of a vague question. Are you familiar with Mammoth at all? There are no houses for rent short term, unless you find it on vrbo.com - but the town does prohibit the practice.

What you get in Mammoth are condos for rent. Go to www.visitmammoth.com and click on accommodations.

Note that you can't really be close to the slopes AND the bars. But if you stay near the Village, you can easily take the Gondola up to the mountain, and be stumbling distance to bars. Look for condos in the Canyon Lodge area (but know that you might get snowed in, which is common at that time of year - meaning, tough to get to the Village and Main Street) or for condos near the Village.

Another option is to find a condo near Main Street (usually cheaper, too, because they're not as up-to-date) - and take the shuttle to the mountain each day. Shuttles fill up, so sometimes you have to wait for the 2nd or 3rd one.

Kinda late to find the perfect spot but a good one, if you don't expect to ski out to the slopes, is SnowCreek Resort and catch the local shuttle bus to the slopes. Availability may be a problem, but can't hurt to check. Good Luck.
