No visit to Mammoth Lakes is complete without spending time at Mammoth Mountain! Arguably the area’s top tourist destination, Mammoth Mountain Ski Area is a world-class ski resort, offering 3,500 acres of skiable terrain. It benefits from the area’s heavy snowfall in winter, and features runs for downhill and cross-country skiers of every skill level.
Snowboarding, snowmobiling, dogsledding, and individual and group lessons are available here as well.
