Mammoth Lakes has the best mountains for skiing in California

The only thing more beautiful than skiing is where you do it.

Imagine a place with the prettiest snow-covered mountains, sparkling lakes, and endless adventures. Now imagine that it’s only a five-hour drive away.

Welcome to Mammoth Lakes, California – the best spot for skiing and snowboarding in our state! Here’s why you and your friends should hit the slopes at Mammoth Lakes this fall.

Whether you’re greeting people at the lodge or sharing stories while on the chairlift, you’ll feel right at home in this small community.

With over 3,500 acres of slopes, and a vertical drop of 3,100 feet, the Mammoth Mountain Ski Area has something for everyone. You can find gentle slopes to learn on or crazy-challenging runs to test your skills. Plus, the ski season here lasts from November to June, so you’ve got plenty of time to perfect your moves.

Mammoth Lakes has been a skiing hotspot since way back in the 1930s. But don’t worry, there’s plenty of modern fun there, too. From trendy shops to cozy lodges, there’s always something new to explore when you’re not shredding the slopes. You can go snowshoeing, explore the town, or hang out in natural hot springs surrounded by snow. Mammoth Lakes is all about fun, both on and off the mountain.

It’s also famous for its stunning lakes. You can take a break from the slopes and go explore the breathtaking scenery around Lake Mary, Lake George, or Convict Lake. These sparkling gems are perfect for taking pictures, making memories and overall just enjoying the change of the beautiful nature around you.

But wait, Mammoth Lakes isn’t just a winter wonderland – it’s also an outdoor paradise in the summer. When the snow melts, the trails open up for the best hiking adventures.
