Families will have a ball in Mammoth with everything family friendly from accommodation and eateries through to ski slopes, and a relaxed, fun-filled atmosphere throughout. It’s a great place for a bit of bonding.

But then again the day care is good too, so perhaps some time apart once you get here isn’t such a bad idea. The Small World Day Care Centre (+1 (760) 934 0646) located in the slopeside Mammoth Mountain Inn will accept children from a few days old to age 12, and ski school has special classes from age three. Combo packages that’s part day care, part ski school are available.

You can download and complete a Children's Liability Form from the ski school section of the resort website before you travel to Mammoth in order to speed up the ski school check in process.
