Overview: Slopeside at Mammoth, the chalets are ski-in ski-out A-frame cabins adjacent to 80 miles of singletrack bike trails when the snow melts. U.S. Forest Service land surrounds the property, with hiking and fishing nearby in the Ansel Adams Wilderness. A free shuttle service hits shops, restaurants, and nightlife, in the town of Mammoth Lakes—10 minutes away.
Notable: Situated at 8,900 feet near the Main Lodge, the chalets are the highest elevation year-round accommodations in the Eastern Sierra.
Stay Here It: Your idea of a mountain retreat is parking the car and snuggling your dog (and significant other) in a secluded cabin with restaurants, trails, and skiing out the front door.
Information: Cabins vary in size and configuration. Winter non-holiday rates start at $295 for a small cabin that sleeps eight, and $415 for large cabins that sleep 12. mmchalets.com —Monica Prelle
