The Village at Mammoth is the perfect place to relax
No matter how hard you try, you can’t ski or snowboard all the time. Once your hamstrings have had their fill of the slopes, stroll the town and treat yourself to some outlet shopping, gourmet restaurants, and fun bars with a great community feel. Garb yourself in new clothes and gear, then rejoice in all manner of dining options. The local food scene includes BBQ, sushi, Mexican, Italian, Scandinavian, and more.
It’s big city luxury in small-town charm, with gorgeous buildings, and friendly people. Who can blame them? You’d be friendly too if you worked in a place where people can just ski up to the front door.
Or hey, no need to wait until end of the day, since there’s a gondola right in the middle of The Village at Mammoth. Take a midday break to warm up with a coffee, then glide right back onto the gondola. You can also drop the wee ones off at child daycare while you hit the slopes. (In retrospect, you should have done that before you got on the lift.)
At the end of the day, get sociable by joining your ski compatriots to warm up and relax in front of one of the three fire pits.
