Winter is around the corner. Believe it or not its time to book your winter nation rental. There are some prime dates that will book up soon. The winter season starts around Thanksgiving depending the snow. One of my favorite ski months is March, by this time most of the mountain has filled in, you can usually get a sunny ski day and even a powered day.
One the best best is to rent a condo in the area. Most condos are located right next to the mountain, maybe not ski in ski out but close. I think having a kitchen is key on a ski vacation, its hard to eat out every meal.
Passes are on sale now as well! http://www.mammothmountain.com/winter/plan-a-vacation/season-passes
