With one of the longest ski seasons in North America (averaging a span from November to June), Mammoth Mountain Ski Area occupies a large part of the eastern Sierra Nevada mountain range in the Inyo National Forest. The resort receives an average of 400 inches of snow per season, though higher amounts are occasionally documented. Skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobile riding, skating, and many other powder-enabled sports are widely available at the resort.
Mammoth is the tallest ski resort in California, with a peak elevation of 11,053 feet, and 3,100 feet of that being pure vertical skier’s paradise. Mammoth Snowmobile Adventures makes snow "off-roading" accessible and fun for riders of all (or no) experience levels. Lakes Basin offers 19 miles of constantly-groomed powder for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and skating.
