Mammoth Mountain lives up to its name with epic snowfalls and ski terrain so vast that skiers and snowboarders can explore for days without repeating a run. Even the nightlife in the nearby town of Mammoth Lakes in on an epic scale, especially on weekends when most of the cars in town carry L. A. plates.
Larger-than-life ski pioneer Dave McCoy started Mammoth with little more than a dream, unbounded enthusiasm for the sport, and a genius for building and operating ski lifts. For more than fifty years, McCoy has been the driving force behind this world-class resort.
