One of the legendary ski resorts in the USA, Mammoth Mountain truly is at the Top of California. Sitting above 3,300 meters, Mammoth Mountain boasts one of the longest ski seasons in North America, usually opening the first half of November, and skiing well into June. It isn’t unusual to be skiing in a t-shirt or bikini on the 4th of July! With an annual snowpack of 10 meters plus, a ski terrain exceeding 1,500 hectares, and 28 chair lifts and gondolas to choose from, it’s easy to see why Mammoth Mountain should be on everybody’s winter “bucket list.” With 150 different runs, Mammoth Mountain has plenty of terrain for all ability levels, from beginners and cruisers to cliff-jumping experts.
Don’t forget your sunscreen, as Mammoth Mountain enjoys more than 300 days of sunshine a year, which makes the odds very good for bluebird, powder days on the slopes, and a goggle tan on your face when you get home.
Mammoth Mountain is the official training mountain for the US Olympic Snowboard and Freestyle teams. You can improve your skills on one of Mammoth Mountain’s eight terrain parks. Children and aspiring adults can play around in Mammoth Mountain’s beginner parks, while the fearless rippers land big air in the Olympic-level superpipe and slopestyle jumps.
Where you stay is the heart of your holiday. Location reigns supreme but do you prefer resort facilities or unique and boutique? Historic and old world or modern and shiny?

We would rate the Bellagio as one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. Fabulous, glitzy, exciting. We loved having breakfast at the poolside café... one of our best experiences ever. If it hadn't been for you we wouldn't have had the suite or cabana and we loved them. We both agreed that the hotel was the best for us and you had suggested that so well done!Leonore & Mike Rumford
