Ski Lifts in Mammoth Mountain

Mammoth has a large system of 28 lifts including 3 gondolas and 12 of 22 chairs are high-speed, which means that you’ll rarely have to wait in line.

Mammoth Mountain Ski Lifts 

With 28 lifts spread around the mountain, Mammoth’s huge amount of terrain is easily accessible. There is one express six-passenger chair, nine express quads, one quad, seven triples, five doubles and two surface lifts. There are also three gondolas: the Lower Panorama, which leaves from the Main Lodge and stops first at McCoy Station; Upper Panorama Gondola, which leaves from McCoy station and takes passengers to Panorama Lookout at the top of Mammoth mountain; and the Village Gondola, which connects the Village with Canyon Lodge.

The ski lifts operate from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm. The large system of high-speed lifts means that lines are rarely a problem. Lines (always under 10 minutes) generally occur only at lifts leaving the main lodges on Saturdays and during vacation periods. If you really want to avoid any waiting in line at weekends, go to the smaller and more intimate sister resort of June Mountain, 20 miles (32 km) away. It shares Mammoth’s lift pass and is very peaceful.
