Nestled in a beautiful valley in the magnificent eastern slopes of California's High Sierra, Mammoth is surrounded by snow covered mountain peaks and glittering alpine meadows.

Mammoth -- no other mountain lives up to its name. It is an enormous complex with 28 lifts, 3,500 acres of skiable terrain and 3,100 feet of vertical.

What makes Mammoth so special is its world-famous bowls, gentle groomed trails, steep chutes, secluded tree runs and plenty of California sunshine.

With one of the nation's longest ski seasons (November to July), most dependable snow depths (10 to 15 feet of natural snowpack), highest ski elevations (11,053 feet) and friendliest staff (1,800 courteous employees to assist you), visitors from the first timer to the seasoned pro will be impressed.

Tamarack Ski Center has miles of groomed cross-country trails that wind through the beautiful Lakes Basin. Lessons, rentals, lodging, warming huts and fine dining are all available on the premises.

Nearby June Mountain is less than 20 miles north of Mammoth, tucked away in the small town of June Lakes. Blessed with breathtaking views of June Lake, Gull Lake, Mono Lake, Carson Peak, Reverse Peak and Mount Wood, it’s no wonder this quaint little hamlet has earned the title ‘The Swiss Alps of the Sierras’. June Mountain is perfect for families and friends looking for a great value, Mammoth's sister resort is California’s best kept secret!

Both mountains offer snowboard lessons and racing programs for beginners and experts alike. You may also rent snowboard equipment at all ski area rental shop locations.

Along with fabulous skiing, Mammoth's host of activities enhances everyone's winter experience. After a day of skiing/riding, escape through pine forests on a snowmobile, dog sled or horse-drawn sleigh or enjoy legendary French Cuisine, created by Chef de Cuisine Frederick Pierrel, at the Lakefront Restaurant located at Tamarack Cross Country Ski Center.

More than 50 restaurants and cafes in town serve everything from gourmet cuisine to the all-American burger. Relax during a romantic candlelit dinner for two or take the whole group out to one of the local pizza parlors.

Enjoy the evening hours on a lively dance floor or in a comfortable cocktail lounge.

Browse through Mammoth's shops and boutiques filled with the finest ski clothing, equipment and accessories.

It's easy to get to Mammoth by plane, car or bus. No matter which direction you come from, it's a scenic drive via Interstate Highway 395.

Mammoth Mountain now offers flights on United Airlines and Alaska Airlines from San Francisco, San Jose, Los Angeles, San Diego and Orange County
