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.
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.
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.
