Mammoth: Trees

A sleeping volcano above the California desert with consistent heavy snowfall, a high volume of freestyle skiers and snowboarders, blue skies and miles of mellow groomers to keep everyone else happy.

Mammoth Lakes is a typically spread-out American settlement with no real focal point, but is definitely well facilitated. There is some nightlife to be found there, maybe not quite of a European standard, but from Friday night to Sunday when droves of skiers make the journey up from LA, things tend to get a little lively.
