Located action central, just steps from the Mammoth Resort shopping complex and the gondola that goes to Canyon Lodge (where guests can access the entire mountain), this contemporary-style mountain lodge features privately owned condo units.  The spacious lobby is atmospherically decorated with granite-tiled floors, comfortable chairs, and even a coffee table made from a tree stump, and it easily accommodates guests and their sports equipment.

Guest room condos come in 36 different configurations.  Westin’s trademark Heavenly beds are double-sheeted in white cotton, and comfortably covered with both a light and a heavy duvet.  The simple decor is in tasteful muted colors and includes pleasant art.  All units have a fully furnished front room and kitchen, and most also have a balcony and two large TVs.  A large swimming pool and two hot tubs that are heated year-round are positioned on a stunning second-floor deck with a lovely mountain/tree view and plenty of posh deck chairs.  For ages 4 to 12, The Westin Kids Club® operates year-round.  Special winter amenities include in-resort ski and snowboard rentals, lift ticket and lesson bookings, and a complimentary Ski Valet that stores skis and snowboards.

(760) 934-0460.  B-L-D daily; $$$.  Situated just off the lobby, this nicely decorated restaurant has a warming fireplace and features a sushi bar.  Service is good, TVs are at the bar, and good views of the woodsy surrounds are an additional treat.
