One-of-a-Kind Winter Experiences

VIP Skiing

Start your getaway with a guided ski day at Mammoth Mountain. Hire a private instructor and you’ll experience the mountain in an entirely new way. Skip to the front of the lift lines with priority access, perfect your ski and snowboard technique with up to four friends, and ride the best spots on the mountain with your personal guide for the day.

A Toast at Minaret Vista

After a full day on the mountain, you’ll be ready for an afternoon of relaxing adventure. Kick back in a heated luxury snowcat and take an afternoon snowcat ride to the Minaret Vista where you’ll enjoy light hors d’oeuvres and champagne while you watch the sunset.

Breathtaking Cross Country Skiing

Set out on a different kind of ski adventure at the Tamarack Cross Country Ski Center, where you can spend the day cross country skiing on groomed trails. Book a lesson or explore the trails on your own. You’ll experience the serene beauty of the forest, see unparalleled mountain views, and enjoy an aerobic winter workout like no other.

Spa Time

After a weekend of adventuring in the mountains, your body will feel it. Book a massage or spa service from Simply Massage in the Village, or Healing Arts Center on Old Mammoth Road and feel rejuvenated before you head home.
