Skiing Information

Regularly voted one of America’s top ski resorts, Mammoth is famous for magnificent powder and a long ski season that runs from November to June. The runs themselves are quite evenly spread in terms of ability level, which is ideal for school ski groups. So, although Mammoth has a reputation as somewhat of a Mecca for powder hounds, you’ll be surprised at the amount of suitable terrain for all levels. Mammoth is also home to one of the world’s best terrain parks. And the entire ski area (roughly 3,500 acres) is served by 28 efficient lifts.

For me, the most exciting part of my job is meeting the students and hearing all about their fun experiences on the slopes! I believe that school travel is wonderful for the development of young people. – Tracy West Ski Specialist

Don't take our word for it …

Jasper is an excellent skiing venue, especially in springtime. The instruction is, on average, far better than even the best that Europe has to offer. The powder snow allows for maximum improvement. — Chulmleigh Community College
