Simply put, I've skied most of the top 10 listed and to be honest Mammoth is so much better than any Aspen Mt. it's not even close. Sure Ajax is longer top to bottom but there's nothing there like the top of Mammoth. Jackson is great but talk about a nightmare to get to, and if you're not a quad black dimond skier, good luck. There's no other place like Mammoth, 20 ft of snow can fall in 3 days, then you can be skiin... view moreWas this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
I'm from the Ice Coast and take one monumental trip out West each year and last March I fell in love with Mammoth! We got a foot of snow every day we were there (7 ft total)! I'm an easy going snowboarder but because of the powder I rode trails I would NEVER ride here. I rode chutes, rode chair 23, did the cornice thing (not gracefully - but went for seconds), trees etc... I would come back each year. There are so ma... view moreWas this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
As a former Bay Area resident and long time Mammoth skier I take exception to the reviews contention that Mammoth is too far from the Bay Area. If you take Highway 88 instead of I-80 you can get to Mammoth in about 5 hours from most of the Bay Area. Still to long a drive you say? Well, there's a litle place called Kirkwood about halfway between the Bay Area and Mammoth that breaks up the drive quite nicely. By t... view moreWas this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
As a former member of a ski team I've had the opportunity to ski every major ski resort in North America. If I were to rate ski resorts based soley on terain and conditions I would have to rate Mammoth No. 1. The high elevation and abundant snowfall make for consistantly excellant conditions and a long season. With regard to the terain they have one of the most accurate rating systems.

I have lived in Mammoth my entire life. I grew up there and have always had a blast skiing there. I have never had any problems with anything. The snow is always great; there's something for everybody here. Also, the town is a great place to come and visit, it's small and homey, I would recommend it to anyone. The restaurants all have great food and most of the locals are friendly if you don't mess with them. Respect... view moreWas this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
Mammoth is incredible. Super long runs, great snow, fast lifts and lift lines and an awsome park that caters to skiiers and boarders alike, Mammoth is my top choice. The nightlife used to be dim, but the new village has sparked that up. At about 4 hours driving from S.D., it's definitely worth to stay a while. Great scenery with Yosemite next door. Even on a crowded day, I have often found myself alone on a run.... view moreWas this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
Been skiing for 40 years all over US, Canada,SA. and Europe and I feel Mammoth is one of the most overrated areas in the US. In the middle of nowhere, hard to get to, lousey Apre-ski, crowded on weekends/holidays, lift system gone astray, poor parking program and average mountain food.Was this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
