If you are sure you are coming then your best option would be to buy a season pass right now while they are on sale. You only need to ski for about 8 days to break even on the cost of the pass.

You could look online or in the papers. There is a housing thread on this forum. Or, place an ad in the Reader that is free. They are right about buying a pass now.

Congrats! If an El Nino forms that could mean a VERY good season for Mammoth - but no guarantees of course. Housing costs vary greatly just depends on what you get and when you find it.

The key is starting your search early and be persistent.
