We are a family of 4 (2 adults/2 kids aged 16 & 13) from Australia planning on staying at Mammoth 21-26th Dec this year. I am having trouble picturing the area and where to stay. I have been looking at places that are in the Village "close to the gondola". Does this mean that to get to the ski runs you need to take this gondola or do you ski from the Village? I am not a skier (the Mum) and so want to be close to shops/spas etc whilst the rest are off skiing - hence looking in the Village. Is this the way to go or do you stay "on the mountain" ???
Any advice greatly appreciated! Lisa Dawes
