What sets Mammoth Mountain apart is an 11,053 foot summit and over 3,500 acres of skiable terrain that includes heart-pumping steep chutes, wide open bowls, tree skiing, bumps, gullies, and wide open, well groomed trails. An average of over 400 inches of snow is caused by weather patterns from the Pacific that form over the Sierra. Mammoth Mountain is traditionally among the first ski areas to open and sometimes operates as late as the Fourth of July.
Winter Sporting Good Stores and Rentals
Mammoth is known as one of the world's best resorts for spring skiing, sometimes staying open until July 4th. By late April the ski area is less expensive, uncrowded, and provides for a perfect day of mid-morning skiing followed by a game of golf, fishing or mountain biking.
