One of the world's leading ski resorts, Mammoth's north-facing slopes spread over one of the biggest ski areas in North America. The resort began in the late 1930s thanks to the efforts of pioneer Dave McCoy, who went on to build Mammoth up to its current global status and attracting more than 1.5 million visitors annually.
Mammoth's great snow record means that the ski area offers one of the longest ski seasons in the world, typically opening in the first half of November and staying open into June, although it has reached August in the past.
Although the resort's facilities in terms of the number of shops and restaurants are not quite on the scale of South Lake Tahoe, Aspen or Vail, they are more than adequate, and the ski mountain is certainly a match.
