Dave McCoy built California’s highest ski resort in Mammoth for two reasons: Mammoth receives the most snow in the Sierra and Dave sought the best place to ski with his friends. You can still sense his passion across our 3,500 acres, whether you’re skiing pow or hitting our world-class terrain parks. Since then, skiers like Chris Benchetler, Pep Fujas and Tanner Hall have called Mammoth home. With daily flights from San Francisco on United as well as daily service from San Jose and Los Angeles on Horizon Air, getting here is easier than ever before.

With abundant above tree-line skiing, massive open bowls, ample chutes, drops and glade skiing, there’s plenty of challenging terrain as well as a plethora of intermediate and beginner options. Backcountry? Some of the best in the world. And our terrain parks regularly win awards for the best in the country and include seven parks and three halfpipes.
Take the Panorama gondy all the way up to the summit, California’s tallest accessible by lift, before dropping in for wind-buffed turns on Dave’s. If it’s windy, ski the trees in Avy Chutes off Chair 22. Or jump and jib in the Unbound Terrain Park. Mammoth Yosemite Airport now features direct flights from Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Jose. “I know I’ll get more good days on the hill and in the BC around here over the course of a season than I could anywhere in the U.S.,” says Powder’s Jaded Local. “If people in Utah knew how much pow we ski here and how much safer the snowpack is, they would cry in their 3.2 beer.”
