Mammoth

There will be two drive-ups to Mammoth this season!  Lodging has been booked at Mammoth Estates which has been well received by our members over the past few years as it is reasonably priced and within walking distance of the Village gondola. A four bedroom is booked for each trip so we are accepting reservations for 8 for each trip.  Each condo has two bedrooms with queen beds (or larger) one bedroom with twin beds and one bunk room.  We are limiting the bunk room to two members, regardless of the number of bunks in it.  If there is a lot more interest we can look at booking another condo in the same complex.  The condos are no smoking, no pets. You are responsible for your transportation to and from Mammoth. An allowance is provided for a group meal out – or for groceries if there are volunteers to cook.  Details for each trip as are follows:

Drive Up Trip 1
