Mammoth Mountain Scenic Gondola Ride

Scenic Gondola Rides at the Mammoth Mountain Ski Area: Taking a ride to the top of Mammoth Mountain is an amazing experience.

The gondola ride starts at 8900 feet and tops out at 11,000 feet. The trip up to the top takes about 15 minutes and it goes in two stages.

Halfway up you will enter Mc Coy Station, this is a great place to get off and take a walk around at the 9600-foot level.

Outside the building, there is a very cool ski area history area. You will see all sorts of different pieces of the old grooming and lift equipment displayed.

Once you have checked out the Mc Coy Station area get back on board the Gondola and ride up to the top.

The views on the ride up are breathtaking and once you’re at the top the views are even more amazing.

Once you reach the top station you will have 360-degree views of the Eastern Sierra and the Sierra Nevada. You will get a chance to get a picture of the famous Mammoth Mountain Sign at 11,000 feet.
