It was only two weeks ago someone I had recently met was shocked that I hadn’t been to Mammoth yet. I know. I know. I haven’t. If you enjoy the mountains and love skiing, or even just like being around people that ski (as in my case)—and live in Southern California—it’s pretty much mandatory to have been to Mammoth. My grandfather loved skiing there and even had a picture of the mountain over his desk. My aunts and uncles even skied there, so this is quite embarrassing for me. That said–I think I found the deal that will get me to go. Kids ski free! Skiing is expensive so whatever discounts you can find will help. Especially if you have a family with several children to get up on the hill.
DEAL | Book a stay at any Mammoth Lodging and Collection Property and kids 12 and under stay and ski free.
DATES | Valid February 22 – March 15, 2015
TESTED | I did a bunch of searching around for our family (2 adults, 1 child) and the cheapest I found was for two nights Feb. 23-25 in a Studio Condo for $794. The upside for me was that this would be in the village close to the shops and restaurants. But wait, there’s tax. So the grand total for only two nights was $870.82. Seems like a lot if you haven’t even bought lift tickets yet. So, you know what I did? I went over to Expedia and found a room at The Village Lodge and found a Studio with one Queen bed starting at $239/night for a total of $589 including tax and the resort fee due at the hotel. I could use that $281.82 in savings for ski lessons for my six-year-old. Either way, I’m still at Mammoth Mountain and I’m still in the Village. That said, if you are a Mammoth regular, the deal gives you access to lodging that is slope slide hotels and private cabins. If you want to get up close and personal with Mammoth, try some dates and see if they work for you. Larger parties or combined families can save more than a small family if they’re splitting the bill.
TIP | If you’re more concerned with saving money on adult lift tickets, note that Mammoth also has a deal worth looking into called $129 Lift and Lodging package.
Don’t forget to tell us if you are able to take advantage of this deal and have fun skiing at Mammoth with the kids!
