Mammoth Mountain: Free night for leap year babies at ski resort

Los Angeles Times Daily Travel & Deal blogger

I'm not sure if "leapling" is really a word, but if you are one – someone born on leap day  -- you may stay free at Mammoth Mountain ski resort on Feb. 29. There's finally snow, too (about a foot from a recent storm, as of Tuesday) at the resort that got off to a snowless start in December and January.

The deal: Leap Year Babies Stay Free offers a choice of one free night (with a second person) at Juniper Springs Resort, the Village Lodge, Tamarack Lodge or Mammoth Mountain Inn on their birthday. Reservations are required, and valid ID showing your birth date must be shown at check-in.

When: The offer is good for Feb. 29 only.

Details: If you want to tack a second night on to the free room, I found availability for a studio condo at the Village Lodge for $289 plus tax for March 1. If you plan to go skiing or boarding, an adult lift ticket will cost $89.
