Spend the Holidays in Mammoth: The Premier Winter Resort in California

Posted by admin on January 8, 2011

Living in California, we are fortunate enough to be able surf Malibu in the morning and hit the slopes snowboarding that same afternoon.

But do the local ski resorts compare to the likes of Aspen, Utah and Colorado? With over 3,500 acres of terrain and 150 trails, I would say Mammoth Mountain definitely stacks up, especially since it has recently transformed from a sleepy ski town to a high-end ski destination.

If you want to splurge there is always the opportunity to do Mammoth first class. No need to endure a 5 hour drive from Santa Monica as Horizon Air now offers quick flights from LAX starting at just $60 each way.

If you are not able to rent a gorgeous house right on the slopes, then The Westin is the place to stay. Located in the center of The Village with lots of great shops and restaurants, the hotel also has a gondola that takes you right to the slopes. For a great dinner, you can’t go wrong with Petra’s Bistro and Wine bar. If you aren’t exhausted by then, Hyde Lounge brings a little Hollywood Nightlife to the slopes with a hip venue and guests DJ’s so you can dance the night away.

New this year are Mammoth Black Pass memberships. What does a $10,000 membership get you, you may ask?

Personalized concierge service

Priority lift line privileges

All-access season pass and premier parking pass

Private dining room

Free demos and hot wax

Exclusive signature events.

If you are not a high roller, you can still enjoy all that Mammoth has to offer.
