  • Getting ThereUntil the new airport opens, it's a six-hour haul up from L.A., or a three-hour sprint from Reno.
  • When To Go Spring skiing is like mid-winter elsewhere, with more sun. When most mountains close, in April and May, Mammoth is in her glory.
  • Sleeping In Rooms at Juniper Springs run from $280 per night for a one-bedroom condo, to $545 for a three-bedroom. Call Mammoth Lakes Visitors Bureau (888-466-2666; Rates range from $89 for a B&B, to $500 for large units.
  • Dining Out The A list is short but good. Nevados and Skadi offers upscale California cuisine. The Lakefront Restaurant at Tamarack Lodge is intimate and classic. For great Mexican fare, try Roberto's.
  • Après-Ski Whiskey Creek is where the wild things are. Locals can be found at the Clocktower. Ocean Harvest's disco nightclub is below its restaurant.
  • Kicking Butt For first tracks, be on the gondola when it opens. When the best lines have been hit, tuck into Paranoid Flats or Wipe Out Chutes for leftovers.
