Starting today, Horizon Air will begin its annual winter service to snowy Mammoth Mountain, offering daily flights from Los Angeles, Portland, San Jose, Reno and Seattle. Mammoth Mountain, one of California's ski resort gems, has already reaped the benefits of a winter wonderland with a base of five to eight feet--and even more on the way. The flights mark the beginning of regular air service to Mammoth throughout the snow season.
Travelers can enjoy two daily nonstop flights from Los Angeles, as well as daily nonstop service from San Jose and Reno and direct (same-plane, one-stop) service from Seattle and Portland. Flights will continue through April 11, 2010.
Mammoth Mountain welcomes an average of 1.2 million skiiers per winter and is the third most frequented resort in the United States. Flights arrive at Mammoth Lakes Yosemite airport, a 15-minute drive from Mammoth Mountain.
Currently, Horizon is offering special low fares for flights on select days between Mammoth and each city. Fares start at $49 each way from Reno, $69 from San Jose or Los Angeles, $144 from Portland and $149 from Seattle. To book seats, visit www.horizonair.com or call 800-547-9308.
