Situated about 330 miles from San Francisco and 310 miles from LA, Mammoth Mountain Ski Resort boasts the highest summit elevation in the state of California at 11,053 ft. It also averages an impressive 400 inches of annual snowfall for one of the longest ski seasons in the state that can sometimes last into July. Located in the southwest corner of the volcanic Long Valley Caldera on the eastern edge of California’s Sierra Nevada Mountain Range, Mammoth Mountain lives up to its name by offering more than 3,500 skiable acres and a 3,100 ft. vertical drop.

The resort is home to several distinct base areas, including Main Lodge, Canyon Lodge, The Village, Eagle Lodge and The Mill. Excellent terrain options run the gamut from a variety of expansive bowls, tree skiing, wide open groomers, steep chutes to world-class terrain parks.

Most visitors stay in the town of Mammoth Lakes, California, which offers up restaurants, bars and plenty to do for those seeking a nightlife scene. The resort provides a great starting point to explore the Sierra Nevada Mountains and is only about an hour drive from Yosemite National Park or 30 minutes to nearby June Mountain. Lake Tahoe is also just a few hours away.
