Mammoth Mountain in sunny California is a ski resort of world-class quality.
The place is a snowboard mecca. From Olympic Gold medalist Shaun White to Norwegian snowboard icon Terje Haakonsen, every year riders from around the globe make the pilgrimage to this active volcano to ride the powder beast that is named for an ancient wooly elephant.
Yes, crazy and true, Mammoth Mountain is an active volcano and every few years the local press prints a story about someone getting swallowed up by an open, Sulfur spewing, crevasse and dying. This mountain is a monster in more ways than one.
Grab a tram ride to the peak on one of the many powder days a year and you will see just how monstrous Mammoth really is. The place is gigantic… with over 300 inches of snowfall a season, Mammoth is home to some of the best powder skiing in the world.
Mammoth really is a part of so many vacation package deals that it has become a world-class resort destination. Stay right on the mountain with ski in ski out condos or stay in the village at one of the luxurious hot-tub-having hotels and take a lift up to the hill. And the food is top notch too. Grab a pizza and beer at any place in town and you will not be disappointed.
Anyone visiting California would love Mammoth. It has it all, steep and deep pow, sick tree runs, arguably the dopest park maybe anywhere with gaps, quarters, rails, massive tabletops, and a half-pipe set to Olympic specifications.
On any given day you can see pro riders from around the world boosting HUGE out of the park spinning like a school girl on a merry-go-round. Take out your camera cause from the beauty on the peak to the mind-blowing riding in the pipe you will have plenty of footage to make all your friends on Facebook jealous.
Make no mistake about it… Mammoth is just that, Mammoth. It is a real mountain and it gets cold so bundle up. Don’t let nasty weather send you in to the bar early.
Here is what is coolest about Mammoth for any traveler… with their airport now in full swing you can take a flight in from any city in Cali and be there in no time. Coming from Texas are you? Grab a flight to LAX and then be on the slopes in no time flat.
