“Fantastic Gondola Ride”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Came to Bishop, Ca. for a niece's 25th wedding anniversary. Had a day to kill so we drove to Mammoth Mountain and took the Gondola Ride to the top of the mountain. What a beautiful ride, nice clear sky and watching the skier's and snow boarders was a lot of fun. It's a must do when you visit.

“Lots to do Winter or Summer!”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Mammoth Mountain has much to offer anyone who loves the mountains anytime of year! Great skiing with wide open slopes and allot of variety for skiers and boarders. Great food all over the mountain or you can even take the free shuttle (which runs all over town) or gondola to the Village for a break. They offer snowmobiling from the main lodge that offers wide open spaces and amazing views! Travel up to the Lakes Basin for snowshoeing and cross country skiing all beautifully groomed. You can fly in and never need a car or it is an easy drive from Los Angeles.
The summers in Mammoth are GREAT! Biking, hiking, fishing, sight seeing, back packing anything you want to do outside is there. Many good restaurants all over town. Awesome temps and nice clean air.

“I Hope It Snows”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

MVP Pass holders for a couple of years. Great snow 2 years ago. Last year was terrible. Does not look promising this year with the heat waves. Usually long lines at the lifts on weekends and holidays. Best snow in California when there's snow. Great hot chocolate.

“Overpriced”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Mammoth is terribly overpriced compared to all other ski restorts in California. The ticket prices are really high, the food is ridiculous.

“Mammoth Mountain Paradise”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Tamarack Lodge is absolutely perfect (ONLY if you are looking for beautiful location, friendly staff, and great accomodations). We prefer a cabin that we have been staying in for many, MANY years. It feels like home away from home. It still has that mountain cabin feel with modern updates. Roy and staff are the GREATEST! We have family join us as often as possible, as we know they will love it as much as we do.
