Great for mid-winter pow and late season spring skiing. They're one of the only resorts open daily until July 4 -- not just on the weekends in late season! Riding Climax on a pow day is amazing. And Cornice Bowl to Saddle Bowl is great for ripping big GS turns. Then you can duck into Main Park or Forrest Trail for terrain park fun. A little bit of everything I love in one run. For food, Whiskey Creek has the best happy hour in town with half-off most of their menu in the bar. The best breakfast is at Stellar Brew. Lunch? Pack one or share a burrito at Main lodge. They're huge! For nightlife, Auld Dubliner, Lakanuki are all fun depending on the night. And Clocktower is great if you wanna keep it low key.

Mammoth is the only mountain for me

I grew up on Mammoth Mountain with skis at age 4 skiing at canyon lodge and started boarding at age 10. Haven't looked back since. If I could make any recommendation for the mountain it would be to have discounted ticket prices for locals like they used to! I've been riding Mammoth Mountain for 24 years now and still love the mountain!

Alta, because I'm a snob ;-)... actually the 800+ inches on a skiers only mountain gets you away from crowds, ridiculous prices and into some of the best front and backcountry in the world.

Any of them as long as there is snow

I just finished 12 straight months of skiing, started in NZ and just finished at Timberline. I loved everyone of them, from Le Massif in Quebec, Breck in Colorado, Mont Tremblant ( my home hill) Mammoth, Jay, I've been to Red in BC, Kicking horse, Bromont, Mont Ste Anne, Stoneham and even my little hill in town, Edelweiss. if there is snow and the lift is running andIi'm there, it's the best place to ski.

Mammoth Lakes Cali!

I lived off the side of that mountain for 11 years, and I never grew tired of it, it's always changing and adding new stuff new events and great activities for any age! Favorite run is dead man and any run off chair 10.

Love Mammoth for it's not-too-overbuilt town, yet world-class runs.
—Guest Shelly

My whole family loves Mammoth

Lots and lots and lots of snow! Lots of lifts and runs! The ski season is really long and you can easily get there from the L.A. area.
