Stay back east! Mammoth is SoCal's playground, you guys need to stay in Vermont and up state New York, just bring your ice skates, lol! If you wanna come out west go to Tahoe but you leave Mammoth to us Cali Natives!
mammoth has an 11,000' summit, steep and convoluted terrain due to the fact that it's a volcano and gets light, dry snow due to its altitude. none of this can be said about the garbage icy hills on the east coast.
