Mammoth Ski Holidays

This legendary winter resort has masses of terrain with huge snowfalls, as well as great cruising runs and some pretty scary stuff too. It’s a little further away but well worth the effort.

With views over the high desert, Mammoth is one of North America's largest ski hills, with an enviably long season and lots of snow.

Here in the Sierra Nevada Mountains the ski season starts early (November) and finishes late (June-July). Sunny days are common on Mammoth ski holidays, and average snowfalls are more than 10 metres a year.

Mammoth’s terrain balances steep chutes and snowparks with beginner slopes and tree-lined cruisers. Also included in your pass, June Mountain is a shuttle ride away - our tip is to ski here when LA locals flock to Mammoth on the weekends.

Relaxing bars and restaurants are centred in The Village and Mammoth Lakes town. Non-ski activities include tube parks and snowmobiling and, for an unforgettable evening meal on the mountain, we definitely recommend the snowcat tour up to Parallax restaurant.

To discover more of the US, ask us about skiing Mammoth as part of our California Ski Safari. You could also include LA or Las Vegas as city add-ons by arriving and flying home from either airport.

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.

Call 01273 224060 for advice from our ski specialists.

Top, top resort with great off-piste and groomed runs. Brilliant skiing. Runs off the very top were great. Town is OK - yoga not as good as Squaw! June is a fabulous little gem, great for an easy day when you're feeling tired.

Fantastic ski area with friendly interesting people. Great resort, big town but free shuttle bus for transport. Hotel/accommodation, this was very good and included outside heated pool and three Jacuzzi's . Most importantly right by the lifts so a true ski in ski out experience.

Loved Mammoth, great mountain and the town has a real relaxed feel to it.
