Skip the Bus & Ski/Ride Back to The Village
Look for the Village Ski Back Trail near Roller Coaster Express (Chair 4)
Pick up a trail map or use the free Mammoth mobile app to find it.
This cat track-like trail (see map below) is a fun and easy way to get back to The Village at the end of the day. It has a green circle rating, so it's mellow and manageable for all abilities. Depending on snow conditions, warm weather and speed, snowboarders may need to unstrap in sections, and ski poles could be helpful to skiers.
Make sure you're on the appropriate chairlift before lifts stop running at 4PM.
