Mammoth Ski Resort Guide
Snowboarding in Mammoth
This resort is a mecca for snowboarders, its terrain parks are among the best in the world and are all accessed by fast chairs or gondolas. The pistes must not be underestimated though as they are on a par with the parks and offer plenty of bowls, chutes, tree lined runs and steep cliff faces to get the adrenalin going.
Après ski in Mammoth
This resort tends to get busier at weekends with many places offering live music and dancing. There are various different places to suit all ages, at Main Lodge there’s the Yodler bar which apparently is a genuine Swiss chalet, Tusk is another bar and from here you can watch the folks at the terrain parks.
Whiskey Creek has live bands at weekends and tends to stay open until very late, if sports are your thing, head for ‘Grumpys’.
Eating out in Mammoth is easy as there are over 50 restaurants to choose from with a variety of cuisines.
