The ski lifts at Mammoth officially open on November 13th for the upcoming 2021–2022 winter season. Specifically, opening day hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. if you’re ready to begin the countdown. Below, the friendly folks at Mammoth Bound, the place to go for high-quality Mammoth ski rentals, go over some additional details to keep in mind about the ski lifts at Mammoth and what you’ll need to know as you prepare for your visit.
Buy Lift Tickets Early to Save
Lift tickets are available for purchase on the Mammoth Mountain website. While it’s possible to get tickets for lifts at the base lodge when you arrive for your skiing trip, discounts and deals are typically offered if you make purchases in advance. This is a great way to make your trip here more affordable. In addition to any limited-time deals that may be in effect, Mammoth offers lift ticket discounts for active military members. Discounts are also available if you’re an Ikon Pass holder. What’s more, the Ikon Pass discounts also apply to pass holders’ family members and friends.
Afternoon Tickets Are Available
If you’ll only be at Mammoth for the day, you may prefer afternoon lift tickets. These can be purchased at the ticket window starting at 12:30 p.m., and they’ll be valid for the rest of the day.
Mammoth Lift Ticket Options
Mammoth offers several options for buying tickets for on-site ski lifts. If you’ll just be skiing for one day, you can purchase single-day tickets. With multiple-day options, the days typically have to be consecutive. This is worth considering if you have plans for a longer stay in the Mammoth area during the upcoming ski season.
Consider Lift & Lodging Deals
If you’ll be staying overnight or for more than a couple of days, consider bundling your lift tickets with on-site lodging reservations. In fact, Mammoth often offers discounts on lift tickets when you book your lodging at the same time in advance. There are some other appealing perks as well that go along with bundling. For instance, one package will give you a lift ticket for each person on your reservation list for dates booked at select Mammoth properties.
Look for Beginner Tickets if You’re New to Skiing
Chairs 7, 11, 15, and 17 are considered the beginner lifts at Mammoth. If you’re at the beginner level with skiing, Mammoth typically offers discounts as an added incentive to brush up on your skills in a safe, fun way. You won’t be able to ski or ride the entire mountain with beginner tickets. However, this can be just fine if you’re new to skiing. Besides, there are many other Mammoth amenities you’ll be able to enjoy during your visit when you’re not skiing.
Check Out Nearby June Mountain, Too
Mammoth’s lift tickets are also valid for use at nearby June Mountain, which is about 20 minutes away. This doesn’t apply to beginner tickets.
