Where to Stay on Mammoth Ski Resort
You have a few choices when it comes to accommodation. First, there’s the Mammoth Mountain Inn, a ski-in, ski-out hotel that’s great for anyone on a budget. There are the usual double and twin rooms, but you could also stay in your very own two-bedroom condo, which is perfect for small families.
Juniper Springs is an apartment complex with everything from studio spaces to three bedroom units. These are beautifully decorated with great views from the private balconies.
The Tamarack Lodge gives you the choice of deluxe or historic cabins. Both can sleep up to eight people, so they’re great for larger groups or for those who just appreciate a bit more space.
The Village Lodge offers modern accommodation in welcoming condos, which also sleep up to eight people.
If you’re looking for the height of luxury for your group, the Luxury Home Altis are the best choice. These private lodgings sleep 10 people and have spectacular views across Mammoth Lakes. You can take advantage of the Jacuzzi on the outdoor deck, cook up a feast in the gourmet kitchen or explore the trails that start right outside your door. There’s even a heated garage.

What is There to do Off the Slopes?
If you’re visiting Mammoth with your family, take some time out to visit Wooly’s Tube Park where you can bomb down some fantastic groomed runs in high-speed snow tubes.
Those who want to explore off the beaten path can book a snowmobile tour. These are great for groups as you’ll get your own guide, all the latest equipment and a chance to see some of the harder-to-reach trails, spacious meadows, historic landmarks and lush pine forest.
If you fancy a bit more of a relaxed tour or want to take small children with you, a snowcat tour is another great option. These huge vehicles offer one of the most unique excursions on Mammoth Mountain.
This huge mountain offers some mind-blowing views from the summit, which can be reached from a gondola as you travel to the top for a bite to eat at the Eleven53 Cafe.
Once you’ve exhausted yourselves fully, unwind at one of the many restaurants and bars on the mountain. There’s something for everyone from cocktails to sushi.
