Mammoth: Think snow, sunny days and Californian vibes
Its excellent location is what makes this ski resort, beloved among Californians, truly stand out. It lies between Los Angeles and San Francisco at an altitude that guarantees a long ski season and mild temperatures. While it has an average of 300 sunny days a year, the resort receives more than 32 feet of snow and it’s not uncommon for its season to extend until June. This is due to an altitude of almost 8,202 feet and the fact that it’s nestled among the Sierra Nevada mountains – close to Yosemite National Park.
The mountain has 150 slopes, being 25% for beginners, 40% for intermediate skiers, 20% for advanced and 15% for the experts.
What else makes Mammoth stand out? It’s the only resort in North America with 3 half-pipe options of different sizes: a small 10-foot one, a 16-foot one and an Olympic-sized one, which is almost 22 feet long. Both beginner snowboarders and professionals can make the most of the infrastructure Mammoth offers.
At the end of the month, the JLA Banked Slalom will take place between February 28th and March 1. In honor of the professional snowboarder, Jeff Anderson, who grew up in Mammoth, this annual festival has a series of lessons and competitions, which are open for everyone to sign up for.
