Winter Ski Resorts in San Diego?

One might not think San Diegans take to winter sports, however that is not the case. When winter arrives, one of the main ski resorts the snow bunnies of San Diego head to, is Mammoth Mountain Ski Resort located in Central California. Mammoth Mountain is located on the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountain range. It is one of the most beautiful resorts in the country.

Mammoth Mountain

Okay so where does one start? Well, let’s look at accommodations at Mammoth. There are several options starting with condominiums in the center of town, which is considered Village Lodging. These are luxury condos with all the amenities one could imagine for all inclusive family vacations and gondola access to the slopes when you are ready to ski. One main convenience of the Village Lodging is the Mountain Center. In the Mountain Center is a facility called the Family Center where one can take ski and snowboard lessons before hitting the slopes. This is a service that is normally in demand so if this is a service you might be interested in, call and make arrangements in advance. For further information regarding accommodations and rate for The Village call 760-934-1982.

Mammoth’s main ski-in and ski-out resort is made up of Eagle Run, Juniper Springs Lodge and Sunstone Resorts. Ideal for families, the town homes and condos offer up to three bedrooms accommodations and are located at Eagle Lodge and Eagle chairlifts to whisk you off to a day of fun. For further information call 760-924-1102.

Now if you choose to stay on the mountain, you will want to book your accommodations at Mammoth Mountain Inn. This is such an exquisite property and convenient to what your visit is all about. The Inn is made up of three buildings offering condominiums and hotel rooms, depending on ones preference. This is a full service property, which also runs a night shuttle service to the Village for those who want to go into town for the evening. For reservations and rates contact the property at 760-934-2581.

Now if you have always had that dream of staying in a mountain cabin, you might want to consider Tamarack Lodge and Resort. Tamarack consists of 28 cabins and 11 lodge rooms. They also have a restaurant and a beautiful lobby with the traditional stone fireplace (after all what’s a lobby at a ski resort without a beautiful fire roaring?) for guests to enjoy. For reservations and information contact the Tamarack Lodge and Resort at 760-934-2442.

There is so much to do at Mammoth. If you are unsure when you first arrive, schedule a tour. The tour last approximately two and a half hours and gives a great overview of the Mammoth area. Did I mention that the tours are free? The season in Mammoth is November through out June, which offers a lot of time for winter recreation as well as other recreation for visitors when snow is out of season.

If you don’t have your own equipment, not to worry, you can always rent it. Whether you choose to ski, snowboard, cross country ski, snowshoe or glide through the snow in a snow mobile, Mammoth is the place to be. One of the best tours is a naturalist guided full moon tour at Tamarack, offered only on certain dates.

For snow and ski reports, and to plan your trip, you can always visit Mammoth Mountain’s Web site.
