Mammoth Mountain is so big, yet so well serviced by its lift system, that the resort has actually decreased its number of lifts (from 32 to 27). And still Mammoth's transport strategy works so well that readers rate it No. 1 in North America for Lifts.
It stretches over six peaks and covers 4,000 acres of terrain. It boasts 33 lifts, including a cable car and a Funitel. It features a high-alpine "village," replete with restaurants, bars, a bungee tower, a pool and an ice rink.
