Where are we going today?
There's SNOW place like the slopes! Mammoth Mountain is a great adventure for the family who love an outdoor adventure. The mountain's 11,000ft peak is actually the highest ski point in the state (pretty impressive!) with over 3000 acres that are great for hitting those slopes.
Mammoth Mountain has a variety of snow sports which are perfect for the entire family, no matter what age. Woolly's Tube Park and Snow Play are perfect for those smaller kids. There are fun snowball targets which they can try and hit (to give those siblings a break!), as well as snowman building equipment. Who do you think can build the best snowman!
For those snow bunnies 42" and taller, there is a fun lift up to the hill, where you can just get to the top quick, and weeeeeee! Speed back down in a safe, inflatable ring!
A snow field with a merry go round? Sure thing - at Mammoth Mountain there is! There is even an outdoor heated area too.
If you have kids in the family that need some lessons to get them on their way, Mammoth Mountain offer ski and snowboard lessons for those 3 years and up. There are 150 named routes that can be used, which range from complete beginners to pro, so as they improve, they can move up! It's a great way for them to monitor their own progress.
For those kids with a bit more skill and want to test all their tricks, The Unbound Playground is where they need to be! There is equipment like micro boxes which they can board right on up - and fly off!
And you're on a mountain - think of the scenery to be seen! Which is why there is an amazing Gondola Ride you can take up to the interpretive centre. This center focuses on geology, local cultural heritage and weather patterns, so kids can learn AND take in the outstanding panoramic views!
Are you ready to hit the slopes!

Mammoth is one of my favorite mountains. It's plenty big, great weather most days, great snow. Childhood memories of learning how to ski. If you end up getting a resort in town there is a gondola that takes you to the base of the mountain. And when you are done for the day you can take the Peak to Creek trail (I think that's what the run is called) goes from the top all the way down to the parking lot in town. So much fun any where you go and great night life, atmosphere. Well worth your time.

Well to say the least this place is a home away from home.. I stopped by for a quick coffee and found the ambience very comforting and the staff very friendly specially the lady at the reception. I didnt have much time to stay here but I am sure the rooms would be great to spend a night. I believe these guys also operate the skiing activities
