Mammoth Mountain is planning for its future with a major investment to modernize and enhance services and facilities, to strengthen and build on its status as a premier location for winter and summer high-alpine recreation. The new plan represents an investment in the Main Lodge and associated facilities, the Town of Mammoth Lakes, and Mono County.

The Main Lodge will better serve its communities – guests, employees, residents and area stakeholders – by providing- new amenities, lodging opportunities and modern offerings to keep pace with the recreational industry and create a uniquely Californian resort that matches Mammoth Mountain’s world-class terrain and alpine experience.
