Snowcat Tours

For a truly unique winter activity, take a snowcat tour to the Minaret Vista. Tours, operated by Mammoth Mountain, give you the chance to explore the backcountry from the comfort of a heated snowcat, and is the perfect way to unwind after a day on the slopes.

Each vehicle can hold up to 12 people, so it’s a great activity for families or large groups. Take in the views while snacking on chocolate-covered strawberries, a charcuterie board and a glass of wine. Kids will enjoy hot cocoa and a waffle sundae. Then, head back to one of your spacious, slopeside 1849 Mountain Rental for a relaxing evening.
