My favorite run on Mammoth Mountain is Scotty’s. Scotty’s is a wide run with a fairly steep vertical drop that is located towards the top of the mountain. You can take chair 1 (Broadway Express) from the main lodge or chair 2 (Stump Alley Express) from Mill Cafe. Both of them connect with chair 23 that brings you to the top of the mountain.
The upper part of Scotty’s is fairly steep, but it flattens out about half way down. Since Scotty’s is a wide run, you do not need to worry too much about running into people and you have plenty of space to do your turns. To the left and the right of Scotty’s you usually find a lot of un-groomed terrain, which makes Scotty’s my favorite run.
If you stay towards your left when you are coming down, you will find some of my favorite terrain off-side the groomed runs. Lots of powder with a few trees make going that route down a lot of fun.
Costco is currently offering a 4-day lift ticket voucher for $239.99. This saves you between $32.01 and $128.01, depending on how early you would purchase the lift tickets online (just make sure you are aware of the black-out dates).
Below some pictures from my last Mammoth trip. Enjoy!
