Village Ski Back Trail

This cat track-like trail is a fun and easy way to get back to The Village at the end of the day. Just look for the Village Ski Back Trail near Roller Coaster Express (CH 4). This trail has a green circle rating, so it's mellow and manageable for all abilities. Depending on snow conditions, warm weather, and speed, snowboarders may need to unstrap in sections, and ski poles could be helpful to skiers. Download the free Mammoth App and use the interactive Trail Map to navigate on-hill.

Make sure you're on the appropriate chairlift before lifts stop running at 4:00 PM. Check our Mountain Report for trail status.
