Resort Description

Mammoth. No ski resort embodies its name like this behemoth of a mountain located in California’s spectacular Eastern Sierra. With some of the most impressive snowfall in North America it’s not uncommon for a ski season to last into July. World-famous parks, steep chutes, wide open bowls and 360 degrees of aspect means there’s always something great to ski.
