Mammoth Mountain
The Mammoth Main Lodge Plan

Skip to About Main Lodge section

Main Lodge

Mammoth Mountain is a decades long can-do story.

From an eighty-five dollar loan and a tow rope to a world-class Alpine destination, Mammoth and its generations of families, outdoor enthusiasts, guests and employees, have made their mark on the ski and recreation world.

With its 70th Anniversary on the doorstep, Mammoth is once again looking forward and planning for its future. And it’s time to go back to where it all began – Main Lodge.

We looked at Main Lodge with fresh eyes and asked - how do we realize the promise of this important place, sustainably showcase its natural beauty, and support our employees, local community, and year-round guests?

It’s time to reimagine Mammoth Mountain and move forward with EVOLVING MAIN
The Mammoth Main Lodge Plan.
