Mammoth Mountain Chalet #17 is located in the heart of the summer and winter activity areas in Mammoth Lakes, California. This 'A' frame cabin sits within the Inyo National Forest just 100 yards from Mammoth Mountain ski area's Main Lodge, Chair Lift #1 and main gondola. Winter visitors can enjoy immediate access to 'first tracks', equipment rental, ticket facilities and retail services and literally 'ski in' for lunch and at the end of a wonderful day, all without the worries of traffic, parking or winter access. Summer visitors can walk across the parking lot, catch a bus to the 'gateway to the wilderness' Red Meadows facilities, rent a mountain bike and traverse the mountain trails or just enjoy a panoramic gondola ride to the summit of Mammoth Mountain. Chalet #17 offers all these benefits and a charming, cozy vacation home away from home featuring all the living amenities including full kitchen, dining area, wood burning fireplace, and an ample deck area to sit, relax and enjoy the views of the summit and the surrounding Inyo Forest. So join us and experience the wonders of Mammoth Mountain.

We loved this place nested in the woods and next to Main Lodge.
A lot better than staying in a condo in town. We did not drive anywhere the entire week. It was a winter wonderland right outside our front door.
The kids loved being brought to our door by a snowcat.
What more could you ask for?! Our favorite place to stay in Mammoth...if you enjoy the feel of being away from it all and want the accessibility of skiing or mountain biking right out your front door - this place is for you. The chalet is directly across from the Main Lodge and the Adventure Center...just a few short steps out your front door so you are able to leave the hassle behind of trying to find a parking spot on those busy days. This is a charming chalet that offers all the comforts of home. Though if you don't feel like cooking in the full kitchen - it's just a short walk to the Yodler Restaurant and Bar, a traditional ski lodge that offers an innovative take on alpine favorites like handmade sausages and schnitzel. As well, Mammoth Mountain Lodge next door has a full bar/social area along with a nice restaurant. Public transportation is also available from the main lodge area - a free shuttle ride into town picks you up at the adventure center (across from chalet) and will deposit you at the Village were you are able to shop and dine. If visiting in the summer, be sure to take the short drive (or long walk) up to the Minaret Summit View - all I can say is that it is a spectacular view and you won't be sorry you made the small effort.
This is a perfect family retreat. There is plenty of forest for kids to play while adults can relax on the deck. Amenities in the chalet are complete, it is all there. So nice!
