Check in was a snap. Go to the mall off Meridian, grab your keys, stock up at the grocery store next door, get pizza at Dominoes across the way if you get there late. (We cam from LA)
A pleasant surprise was that some of the info about this property is wrong. It's a 2bed/2bath + loft on a 3rd floor with 2 single beds. You can sleep 3 couples in privacy here. Possibly more if you don't want friends to drive home if the party gets late.
Do stay here. I've been to Mammoth 5 times, definitely the best lodge I stayed in.
Do go to Mammoth Rock n Bowl if conditions are bad on the mountain.
Don't park in front of the garage, you'll get snow plowed in as we did.
Don't listen to the Mammoth Ski resort conditions hotline- you have to be there to see what the conditions are. The night we got there, it snowed like 4 inches, but started raining in the morning. The ski lodge was saying they got all this new snow, but they had to know the weather was gonna turn by...
