Mammoth is a snowboarder’s mecca. The tallest ski mountain in California is home to 3,500 acres of snow covered terrain—an average of 400 inches of powder annually—and though the mountain is great for beginners, you won’t have to look hard for challenging trails. An astounding total of nine terrain parks sprawl out over 100 acres. These parks are home to three different sized halfpipes, one of which is among the biggest in the world—no other resort in North America has a better variety of halfpipes.
