Mammoth Mountain

Some people come to Mammoth for our 150 trails. Others for our 3,100 feet of vertical. A few show-up with their sights set on exploring our 3,500 acres of terrain. And the size-matters crowd shows up because we’re the tallest ski resort in California with a peak elevation of 11,053 feet. Lovers of snow hang their helmets here  because of our more than 400″ of annual snowfall. Folks with family-sized bottles of sunscreen can’t get enough of our more than 300 days of sunshine. With bluebird skies like that, winter never gets old and sticks around for a long time — our season typically runs from November until June at a minimum. But the one thing everyone comes for is to play big. And there’s no better venue on earth than Mammoth Mountain.
