Mammoth Mountain is fantastic. Like most things California, it is beyond spectacular! Have you ever had a dream where you find yourself hiking along a rocky mountain in rugged, pine-covered wilderness completely alone and at one with nature? I have and that is what Mammoth Mountain reminds me of. The scent of the pines on the fresh, crisp breeze makes the scenic view from the mountain top especially fulfilling. In the winter, I can easily imagine the amazing skiing Mammoth provides from these peaks. It would make for some spectacular runs.
Down below, the village wraps around the ski resort, so it almost doesn’t matter where you stay because you are, at most, a short shuttle ride from a gondola. I love that kind of convenience.
There are many tasty places in the village to calm a hungry gut but my favorite place to eat at is Gomez’s Restaurant. It is Mexican food that aims to please. They make some mouth-watering special sauces that bring you back time and again. Gomez Restaurant is located in the newer part of the village, so after dinner and drinks you can stroll around the village to shop and play at the many activates that are set out for your entertainment.
