Mammoth Mountain is one of my favorite places to ski and snowboard on the West Coast. And Mammoth was the first place that Timmy learned how to snowboard, so it will always have a special place in my heart. Through the end of the ski season, kids ski free at Mammoth Mountain!
Kids Ski Free at Mammoth Mountain
To get your free lift tickets at Mammoth Mountain, simply go to the ticket window and the tickets for your kids (12 and under) will be free. There is no other purchase necessary. How awesome is that?
I’m not sure if there are any documents required to have your kids ski free at Mammoth Mountain. If you have big kids or they are ages 10-12, I would bring along a copy of their birth certificate just to be safe. Since my kids are ages 6 and 2, that won’t be an issue for them.

As an adult, you aren’t so lucky. Lift tickets are still normal price. Boo.

Mammoth Mountain Season Passes
If you buy season passes towards the end of the year, you can ski the rest of the current season and all of the next for a discounted price.
Luckily, I don’t have to buy lift tickets right now. Since we plan on skiing and snowboarding a bunch of times at Mammoth Mountain (and I love a good deal), I bought a season pass in March that is good through the end of the 2017/2018 ski season at Mammoth Mountain.
As an added bonus, Mammoth Mountain Season Passes are also good at their affiliated resorts of June Lake, Bear Mountain, and Snow Summit. Bear Mountain and Snow Summit are located in Southern California, and Timmy continued to learn how to snowboard at Snow Summit with lessons 3 and 4.
Should you have travel insurance?
Although kids ski free at Mammoth Mountain, getting hurt can be crazy expensive! Skiing and snowboarding can be dangerous activities, especially for people who are just learning how to ski or snowboard. If you’re going to learn how to ski or snowboard, consider getting a travel insurance policy to handle any medical emergency that may happen. As an added bonus, these policies also cover trip interruption should you miss your flight, the flight gets delayed, or your bags go missing or get delayed. Overall, pretty valuable stuff for a reasonable price.
The Bald Thoughts
Spring and summer skiing are awesome because the weather is warm and your fingers and toes don’t freeze. You’ll definitely hear less complaining out of the kiddos when they aren’t bundled up like the Michelin Man and upset because the weather is so cold. I highly recommend introducing your kids to skiing and snowboarding while the kids ski free at Mammoth Mountain. It will be a good intro to see if they like it while you’re planning next year’s vacations.
