For the five-star traveler and those seeking the utmost in convenience, Mammoth Lakes has you covered. In fact, every suggestion here can be arranged long before you even set foot in the snow, providing more time for on-mountain activities and après-ski. And, you’ll want this as the Mountain is currently experiencing one of the best snowfalls in recent history.

It starts with how you get there. Southern California residents are in the habit of driving up for a long weekend, but even we can benefit from opting for the sky. JetSuiteX’s new service from Burbank to Mammoth-Yosemite Airport shaves off serious travel time with the luxuries of flying private… all at a surprisingly reasonable cost. We’re talking about the complete absence of lines from TSA security, check-in and boarding. This means arriving to the hangar 15 minutes or so before take-off is truly a reality.

One of the most highly-rated hotels in Mammoth Lakes offers up a tremendous amount of convenience. A few minutes’ walk from The Westin Monache Resort, Mammoth puts you right on the Canyon Lodge Gondola up to the ski lifts or in The Village to shop and eat.

Here, hotel accommodations don’t necessarily mean sacrificing space or paying a lot for it. Look at their one-bedroom and two-bedroom suites with full kitchens where families and friends can sprawl out amid the comforts of hotel amenities like a concierge desk, complimentary shuttle, onsite restaurant, fitness center, seasonal kids’ club and heated pool.

If this sounds pretty good so far, wait until you hear about some of the services that can be arranged in the comfort of your hotel room.

  • Black Tie Ski Rentals delivers skis to your room, fits all gear there and then picks it up from the bellman when you’re done. How easy is that?
  • Snackers rejoice that Bleu Market & Wine Bar delivers wine, cheese, charcuterie and gourmet goods to your room for a private happy hour (or any hour).
  • And, what about end-of-the-day pampering? Ask The Westin Monache Resort, Mammoth to arrange an in-room massage to relax active muscles. They’ll even bill it to your room.

Seriously think about kicking off your Mammoth Lakes vacation with a private ski or snowboard lesson. This expert instruction helps ensure that your skills are sharp enough to tackle preferred runs whether it’s a refresher course in the beginning of the season or help with mastering moguls for the first time. In my experience, this customized attention is by far the most efficient way to become better, stronger, faster —and dare we say often safer — on the slopes.
