High West Whiskey Lounge Pop-Up
We love the big mountain riding and skiing you’ll find at Mammoth, so we also love the big flavors you’ll find at the High West Whiskey Lounge Pop-Ups this season.
High West Whiskey has partnered with Mammoth Mountain to offer whiskey focused drinks, satisfying food, and great games at the Bar Crawler near The Outpost and at Dry Creek Bar inside Mammoth Mountain Inn. The Outpost location is open from 11 am – 2 pm, and the Dry Creek Bar location is open until 3 – 6pm with both running until mid-March, so take advantage while you can!
The Mill is a small base location between Canyon and Main Lodge with access to Chair 21, Gold Rush Express, and Stump Alley Express. If that’s not enough, there is also BBQ and après ski deals!
Whether you’re done for the day or want to have a quick bite to eat and drink before taking your last runs, The Mill offers excellent food and drinks as well as the best BBQ on Mammoth Mountain. Plus, its location near a parking lot makes for quick walks to your car while avoiding most of the traffic at Main or Canyon Lodge.
Lincoln Bar is one of the most popular places to après ski at thanks to the massive outdoor eating and drinking area and incredible mountain atmosphere. Canyon’s central base location means that you’ll have access to just about anywhere on the mountain and it’s a natural meeting place.
On top of that, the Naan Stop & Beach Bar offer a unique choice of Mediterranean food that you’ll find nowhere else on the mountain.
If your day ends at Main Lodge, then you won’t be able to miss the crowd of people enjoying their après ski at Tusks Bar.
Thanks to the central location, views of the mountain and terrain park, and selection of drinks and food, Tusks is one of the most popular places to après at Mammoth Mountain. Find yourself a seat next to the fire and enjoy!
Roller Coaster Express is an all-around great chair because it accesses several terrain parks, advanced blues, and green runs that are great for beginners. Oh, and Basin Bar is located right at the bottom for anyone who needs a break with delicious food and great drinks.
