  • Conditions Report - Dec 2, 2015

    Dec 02, 2015

    backside, corduroy

    Today, Mammoth has 14 lifts spinning with access to 78 open trails. Add that to the 3 parks that are ready to shred, and there’s tons to do on the hill this week. With that much open terrain, it can be hard to know where the best places to ski and ride are, so we’re here to help you figure it out with the first conditions report of the season.

    This conditions report is about a side of the mountain that deserves more love. The Backside of Mammoth Mountain provides some of the best tree runs on the hill, endless lines to discover, and Mammoth’s longest trail, Road Runner, which is three miles of switchback, thigh-burning fun. Road Runner is groomed daily, and is a perfect top to bottom run for intermediate skiers and riders. Venture off of Road Runner to ski some bumps, ride through trees, and find patches of untouched pow.


    Before you jet off into the backside paradise, keep in mind that early season conditions do still exist. Ski and ride with caution, and stay on marked trails.

    Follow Mammoth Mountain on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and Periscope to stay in the loop and to get an in-depth look at conditions every Wednesday.

    For more information on current conditions, visit the Mammoth Mountain website or download the mobile app.

    Mammoth Mountain received another gift from Mother Nature on Sunday, November 15th in the form of 8-12" of fresh snow. That on top of over 60" of snow received atop Mammoth in the last two weeks. Conditions are absolutely fantastic.

  • Thanks For a Great Summer

    Oct 06, 2015

    There’s nothing quite like summer at altitude, and we’ve just wrapped up another season of serious fun. Thanks for all the good times and memories - we'll see you on the slopes when the snow flies.

    Snowy Ride
    With Mother Nature always keeping us on our toes, we kicked off the Mammoth Bike Park season with a little May storm. Nothing like a little snow to test your two-wheeled skills.

    Mammoth Motocross
    Mammoth Motocross has solidified its’ spot as a legendary race – it’s the oldest continuous running motocross event in America. With thousands of riders and spectators making the pilgrimage to Mammoth every June, there truly is no better place to watch the dirt fly than at 8,000 feet.

    Summit Celebration
    High altitude sunshine and good times – that’s what summer is all about. At 11,053’, the views are spectacular and the memories last a lifetime.

    Summer Play
    The Eastern Sierra has more lakes, rivers and streams than we can count and that means there are endless opportunities for adventure and exploration. Grab the family, hit the road, and go have some fun.

    Relax. What’s better than putting your toes in the water and soaking in some scenic Sierra beauty?

    Mammoth Sunset
    Every day we fall in love with the magic of the season, whether it’s’ a warm summer day, a stunning sunset, or simply taking a moment to enjoy the crisp mountain air.

    National Championships
    USA Cycling Mountain Bike National Championships brought the best bikers in the country to Mammoth by the thousands. 6 disciplines of competitors age six and up competed for the guts and the glory, and we’re excited to bring them all back in 2016.

    Climb a Mountain
    Climb a mountain. Seriously, there’s no better way to see the sights than from a mountain top, high above the hustle and bustle of the world below.

    Full Moon
    This summer we partied, danced and celebrated under the full moon at the 11,053’ Summit Series. The top of the Sierra was the place to be to watch the sun set and the full moon rise.

    Buddy ready for snow
    Sometimes the best way to get stoked for ski season is to put your brand new Oakley goggles on your dog and smile.

    Summer Ezakimak
    This summer Mammoth’s most hardcore tested their limits by biking or running to the summit of Mammoth Mountain at sunset. Some called it the toughest race of their life – we call it the EZAKIMAK.

    Camp High Sierra Wedding
    Steeped in rich Mammoth history and situated in a pine and fir forest, the historic lodge at Camp High Sierra delivers a charming and intimate location for a High Sierra wedding.

    Bike Park at Dusk
    80 miles of single track to explore and destroy – the Mammoth Bike Park is the best place to push yourself and test the limits.

    Fly Fishing
    Some people find their peace and quiet on a high-altitude peak, others at a secret spot down by the river. Whatever your pleasure, we’ve got you covered.

    Cam Zink Sunset
    We ended our summer with a sunset shred session featuring the one and only Cam Zink.

  • Happy Birthday Dave and Roma McCoy

    Aug 24, 2015

    The entire Mammoth Mountain Ski Area team would like to wish our founder, Dave McCoy a happy 100th birthday (August 24) ; and his wife Roma McCoy (August 12) a happy 95th birthday! We’ll be celebrating all month.
    Dave McCoy is nothing short of a legend, channeling his love for skiing and for the Eastern Sierra to create the mountain we all are lucky enough to enjoy year-in and year-out since 1953. Prior to his time in the ski industry, Dave worked for the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, sparking his passion for the mountains.  
    After 18 years at LADWP, Dave left his post and began a life of sharing skiing with the recreation world. He installed portable rope tows on skiable terrain starting in Independence, and worked his way north to McGee Mountain and eventually to Mammoth Mountain. The terrain and weather in Mammoth won his heart, so that’s where he settled to begin an era of resort building in what he called his “great big sandbox with the best toys I could get my hands on.”
    More than 50 years later, after building 38 chairlifts and more than 4,000 acres of skiable terrain between Mammoth and June, Dave decided it was time to pass the reigns of Mammoth Mountain on to the next generation. It was someone else’s turn to play.


    During his tenure at the resort, Dave used a Leica camera to document Mammoth’s evolution. He captured it all with that camera: ski racing, lift building, Eastern Sierra landscape photography and family snapshots.

    It made sense that, upon his departure from the ski resort, his longtime friends gave him a gift that would define many of his post-ski resort management years and give his passion for life a different path on which to travel.

    Thank you, Dave, for a century of memories and achievements – to stay updated with what the McCoys are doing today, follow them on Facebook or Instagram @DaveMcCoyPhoto

  • #MammothStories Featured Photographer - Adam Moran

    Aug 13, 2015


    Adam Moran is a prolific photographer that spent over a decade shooting photos for Burton Snowboards. He recently spent some time in Mammoth this summer to enjoy the grandeur of the Eastern Sierra. His photos speak for themselves, but here's his story to get some insight into the mind of the man behind the lens. 

    "A friend of mine had mentioned to me that he had permits to hike the John Muir Trail a few months back and that they were going to do a big loop and wanted to see if I was in. I wanted to do it, but had a few things that kept getting in the way and finally four days before the trip I was able to confirm and jumped in.

    I spent the rest of that week panicking at REI determining if I was going to survive in the wilderness. This type of trip was a new deal to me, and I didn’t want to be the unprepared guy.

    Once we were all set to go and ready to start the hike, we were in the parking lot of Mammoth Mountain. A place I’m very familiar with, but only in the winter. Normally I get there, get on the lift, head up, ride and shoot. This time I was getting on the bus, getting dropped off down by Devils Postpile and starting to walk into the woods for days on end.

    Our hike was on and off trails, over some ridges, and we spent a lot of time by lakes and streams. Every place was amazing in its own way. The weather ranged from from thunder, rain, sun, heat, wind, cold, and at times that all came in one day.

    In the end after 6 days of hiking and camping we ended up back in the Mammoth parking lot throwing our dirty gear into the trucks and heading to the hot springs to cure our sore muscles.

    I’ve always thought of Mammoth as a place I go to shoot in the winter, but this trip definitely changed my mind on what this area has to offer and how I plan my trips up there now."
