Mammoth For Newbies

If you've never been to Mammoth, perhaps the following few paragraphs will help to answer some of the more common questions and concerns.

The town of Mammoth is only four square miles, so you can pretty much walk from one side of the town to another in thirty minutes. Of course there are always free shuttles running if you wish to take that option. Some of them also run at night. Our Snowcreek complex is located on the Red Line shuttle.

We are about a three minute drive to Chair 15 / Little Eagle Lodge, or the Village, and just a couple minutes further to Canyon Lodge. Main Lodge is located four miles up the mountain, generally about twenty minutes, depending on road and weather conditions. You can access the entire mountain from any of these locations, and also from numerous points on the way to Main Lodge. Little Eagle, Canyon Loge, and Main Lodge all have ski/snowboard rentals and schools.

Tamarack Lodge, approximately ten minutes from Snowcreek, has groomed cross-country ski trails and rentals. Snow-shoeing and sledding are popular activities as well, and there is also a tubing hill.

There are several snowmobiling companies in town, an ice rink, a miniature golf course, a skate park, and opening in Spring 2014, a bowling alley. Other entertainment options include a movie theater, live theater, ceramic painting, in addition to numerous shopping stores and art galleries.

When it comes to food, Mammoth has something for everyone, from McDonalds to five-star restaurants.

In any season, Mammoth offers abundant hiking opportunities and numerous lakes and streams for fishing. Pack trips and horseback riding are also available.

There are two fitness centers in town, which offer day passes, and a public pool about ten minutes from town.

Mammoth has a state of the art hospital and urgent care facility.
