Deal: $149 per person for lift ticket and nightly stay at Mammoth ski area

El Niño has been very kind to Mammoth Mountain Ski Area this year.

If the 257 inches of snow so far this season at the Mammoth Lakes resort isn't reason enough to head north, this offer might clinch the deal: lodging and lift tickets starting at $149 per person.

Deal: Mammoth Mountain offers a cool Lift and Lodging deal that's good through spring.

Here's how it works: You book at least two nights at Mammoth Mountain properties, you receive lift tickets for each day of your stay.

Options include Mammoth Mountain Inn, Tamarack LodgeJuniper Springs Resort and the Village Inn. Prices start at $149 per person per night.

When: The offer is good until May 30.

Tested: Prices vary depending on the dates and the property you select, and don't include $20 nightly resort fees.

I checked online and found the lowest prices for this deal available March 7 to 9 and April 8 to 10 for $601 total -- room for two and daily lift tickets. That price includes a room at Mammoth Mountain Inn with one queen-sized bed or two doubles.

As a comparison, the cost of single-day lift tickets alone (which also vary by date) is $100 to $125 in March and April.
