Resorts still open in April in CA

post #1 of 3

Hi All

 

Attending an event in Anaheim in mid-April, would like to know if there's any resort still open nearby at that time of year? I can take a few extra days, should be a good warm-up for the SH ski season.

They usually close 1st or 2nd week in april, (and they kind of blow).      I know this sounds out there but you will be completely stoked if you either fly up to mammoth (spend one night), they fly back (flights are cheap! and it only takes 55 minutes).  Last time I got a round trip for under $200!    Or you can drive but it's a hual, but WELL WORTH IT.   Mammoth will be open until July I am betting , oh and did i mention they have a an 87 inch base at the Base! and over 187 inch base up top!  THAT IS NOT A TYPO 187 inch base!!     www.mammothmountain.com

Yes, Mammoth will absolutely still be open with plenty of snow. We are heading up the last week of March. Well worth the trip whether you drive or fly. The drive is pretty darned easy once you get out of the LA basin. And beautiful. The eastern high Sierra are breathtaking and dramatic. If you DO fly, plenty of shuttles to and from the airport and the entire town of Mammoth Lakes has a great free shuttle system to the slopes.

 

The local mountains (Big Bear, etc.) may or may not be open. They don't even come close to comparing to Mammoth. And you're still driving 2+ hours (in traffic, no less.)

 

There will be deals on lodging at Mammoth, too. Sign up for email alerts on their website, and google Mammoth condos for various other rental agencies. Or stay at the Travelodge or Shilo Inn.

 

Mammoth is also offering a 3-pak of lift tix for $69 each. http://www.mammothmountain.com/Mountain/Tickets/TriplePlay/ Must purchase before March 10th.
