The Sierra Nevada Resort, with a convenient in-town location just minutes from Mammoth Mountain, is the perfect home base for families enjoying a Mammoth Lakes spring break (ski photo by visitmammoth).

Mammoth Lakes, California – March 3, 2020 – Families seeking inspiration for a fun and different spring break escape should consider a “mountaintop romp in the sunshine” says popular family website Red Tricycle, which named charming small-town Mammoth Lakes in California’s High Sierra a “Top Spring Break Destination You Haven’t Tried Yet.” Mammoth – the only California destination on Red Tricycle’s globe-circling list of 20 – offers the “ultimate spring break destination for families looking to hit the slopes … and kick back and relax.” For where to stay, the list picks the cozy accommodations at Sierra Nevada Resort, praising the lodging choice as a “long-time local favorite” with that authentic rustic ski lodge feel and such perfect-for-families extras as heated bathroom floors and fireplaces. 

A stay at the Sierra Nevada Resort also helps make a Mammoth Lakes spring break ski getaway affordable as accommodations include lodge rooms starting at $109 per night for a March/April stay, 560-square-foot Fireplace Suites – which include a stone fireplace, resort-style kitchen and luxurious bathroom with soaking tub and heated floors – starting at $149 per night, and 3-bedroom chalets with full kitchens from $589. With amenity-packed accommodations and dog-friendly options, the entire family can enjoy a spring mountain idyll. 

Families can find a variety of activities by day in small-town-charming Mammoth Lakes and then cozy up and relax in their fireside suites at the Sierra Nevada Resort (family photo courtesy of Mammoth Mountain).

Spring break families will appreciate the incredible range of terrain on the more than 3,500 skiable acres at the world-famous Mammoth Mountain, also notorious for its extraordinarily long ski season that can lead into June – and even July – because of the region’s famously heavy snow fall. The ideal home base for spring break adventures, the Sierra Nevada Resort & Spa makes it easy and convenient to get ready for a day on the mountain with on-site Black Tie Ski Rentals ready to custom-fit guests with the latest ski and snowboard rental equipment, and the resort provides complimentary shuttle rides to and from Mammoth Mountain. 

Even non-skiers – or those who just want to mix it up on spring break – will find plenty of things to do, from guided snowmobiling or snowshoeing tours through the scenic Inyo National Forest to snow tubing at Woolly’s Tube Park and Snow Play with big fun for even the littlest ones, to taking a soak in one of the area’s popular hot springs

Meanwhile when considering where to eat in Mammoth Lakes, Red Tricycle suggests Sierra Nevada Resort’s onsite Rafter’s Restaurant, noting, “For nights when everyone is exhausted from playing in the snow, Sierra Nevada Resort's Rafters—and all of their local, organic produce—is a fantastic option.” And Jimmy’s Taverna, also conveniently located onsite at the resort, is Red Tricycle’s pick for seafood lovers. Both Rafter’s and Jimmy’s offer kid-friendly menus and relaxed atmospheres.
