  • Due to the high winds on the mountain, I decided to go cross-country skiing for the first time in my life with my two friends. The staff here were very helpful. The teacher, Greg, for the lesson I took was a great teacher and like learning from Bob Roth! Excellent staff and I definitely would like to go cross-country skiing again!
  • My first time in Mammoth for a little getaway with my boyfriend. He was not allowed to downhill ski because of his job and so we thought we'd give cross country skiing a try. We got a two-day pass and rentals for a very reasonable price. The equipment was great, the staff was very friendly and helpful (we had no idea what we were doing), and the trails were very well maintained. They separated the ski trails from the snowshoe/hiking trail which was very nice and mark trails by difficulty level. It was also nice to see some of the staff out on the trails making sure everyone was doing ok. When we got back to the lodge after the first day, I discovered that another guest had mistakenly grabbed my shoes instead of their own. Instead of brushing it off as a casualty of business, Dave Schacht and his team went above and beyond to help me out. To be honest it was probably the BEST customer service I have ever received. I would recommend this place to anyone and will definitely​ be back next time I am on the mountain.
