categories; a great combination of Alpine Bowls, super-smooth groomers, panoramic peaks and treeless pistes, all ready for your discovery.
As part of the biggest and longest mountain range in the US, the Mammoth mountain certainly towers over its neighbours. It’s also part of the Long Caldera; a super volcano which is known to have erupted over 57,000 years ago at the vast height of 11,000ft. Split into three key areas; Canyon Lodge, Eagle and Main Lodge, the resort is easily accessible thanks to the buses which connect the village to the Mammoth Lakes.
