Jet-setting to Mammoth Mountain Made Easy Thanks to United Airlines

Posted By: The Ski Channel on September 26, 2011 10:53 am

MAMMOTH LAKES, CA – Jet-setters rejoice! If you are a looking for a way to maximize your slope-time this year then the first thing you need to remedy is the time it takes you to get to your favorite mountain. For residents of California that title rests with Mammoth Mountain. And what’s not to love? Last year La Nina absolutely had its way with our beloved Mammy, providing the mountain with literally “the most snow in the world” and the best, longest, most fun-filled season in the resort’s history!

Mammoth is without-a-doubt one of the top ski and snowboard destinations in the United States, and while it just so happens to be in California’s backyard — for Southern Californians, it is still at least a 5 hour schlep, and for San Franciscans just getting out of the city can be a major ordeal in its own right.

That’s where United Airlines comes in. They have expanded their services with new non-stop winter flights from San Diego and Orange County, and have expanded their flight services from San Francisco with an additional Friday – Monday flight. This is great for news for the many travelers among us, who are unable to tear ourselves away from that final Sunday afternoon ski session.

The new flights will depart daily throughout the winter from San Diego and four days per week from Orange County (Friday – Monday). In addition, air service to and from San Francisco now includes an extra Friday – Monday flight option to complement the daily flight service already in existence. Mammoth Yosemite Airport also receives year-round flights from Los Angeles and winter seasonal flights from San Jose through Alaska Airlines.

The first flights of the season are scheduled to depart Thursday, December 15, 2011 from San Francisco and San Diego and Friday, December 16, 2011 from Orange County.

The service from the two new markets of San Diego and Orange County has been long-awaited by Mammoth’s many customers in these areas.

“The new service will allow fans of Mammoth in San Diego and Orange County to spend less time in their car and more time on the slopes with the ability to get to Mammoth Mountain in about an hour,” said Howard Pickett, Chief Marketing Officer of Mammoth Mountain Ski Area. “The additional flight from San Francisco will greatly benefit out-of-state visitors by providing an additional connection for even easier access to Mammoth through United’s San Francisco hub.”

Once you land at Mammoth Yosemite Airport you only have a short 15 minute drive to reach the “Mecca” that is Mammoth Mountain Ski Area!
