One of the benefits of renting a condo during your trip to Mammoth Lakes is having access to a full service kitchen. This is where you’ll whip up pancakes for family breakfast or bake cookies with the kids on snow days. Or, it’ll give you the chance to cook a hearty meal after a long day of hiking or skiing. Having a kitchen in your accommodations can also be a great way to save money!

Here at Mammoth Mountain Reservations, we’ve got plenty of condos with kitchens that will inspire you to put on your at-home chef hat and start cooking! Take a look:

Other considerations for cooking during your trip

Booking a condo with a full kitchen is such a great way to encourage quality family time while staying within budget. Here are a few other ways that you can make the most of cooking during your next trip to Mammoth!

  • Pay close attention to high altitude instructions. You’ll notice that things are a little wonky up here in the mountains. Baking recipes usually have high altitude instructions to make up for the faster liquid evaporation and rising times. And boiled items, such as potatoes, rice, or pasta, will require longer cooking times to account for the lower boiling temperature. In other words, if you suddenly feel like your tried-and-true recipes are not coming out the way you expected, blame it on the altitude!

  • Head to the grocery store early. We locals know to avoid the grocery store at all costs anytime between 4pm and 8pm. That’s when the evening rush of people coming down from the mountain fill up Vons and Grocery Outlet! If you can, plan a grocery trip in the morning to avoid the crowds.

  • Make the most of the kitchen during snow days. Being snowed in can be kind of a bummer, especially if you’re traveling with kids who were excited about playing in the snow. Baking something together or doing some fun kitchen experiments can be a great way to pass the time until the weather clears.

  • Fire up the grill! Not only do all of our Mammoth Mountain Reservations have fully-equipped kitchens, but many of them have access to a gas BBQ on the premises. Mountainback, Discovery 4, Mammoth Ski & Racquet Club, Courchevel, and others offer this feature for even more home-cooked options!
