Mammoth Mountain is an exercize in dualities. It is the stereotypical California ski resort, yet unlike any other. It is an area of natural beauty and serenity, on top of a volcano. It is so much larger than Heavenly, at 75% of the size. But above all those things, Mammoth is FUN. It seems as though they have been able to succeed financially by giving skiers and riders what they want. Mammoth has great steeps, outstanding parks, open boundary policy, stunning backcountry, top-notch racing program, tons of snow, 300 days of sun, incredibly long season, great atmosphere, extensive ski in-ski out lodging choices, a comprehensive lift system, and more. All this doesn't come without a price, which tops out at $63 for a high season ticket. The long season is largely due to Mammoth's altitude. The same altitude means the upper mountain can close frequently due to high winds or poor visibility.
Mammoth Mountain is located about 2 1/2 hours south of Lake Tahoe just off Highway 395 in Mammoth Lakes. The drive takes you along the Eastern Slope of the Sierra Nevada with extended portions in the beautiful Walker River canyon.

Mammoth is the 2008 host to the Freeride World Tour's Mammoth Quest and Mammoth Challenge.
