The Westin Monache Resort

The Westin Monache Resort, Mammoth Celebrates Its First Summer,
Providing Travelers with a Luxury Basecamp to Explore the Area’s Warm-Weather Activities

Summer travelers who enjoy Mammoth Lakes’ stunning scenery and abundant outdoor recreation now have a new “home away from home” with the opening of The Westin Monache Resort, Mammoth. The hotel has introduced some touches designed to help guests make the most of Mammoth’s relaxed summer environment, while serving as a luxury base from which to partake in the area’s mountain activities.

Mammoth has become a year-round playground, with a mountain bike park, endless hiking trails, world-class fishing, and much more. Ride the gondola to the 11,053-foot summit of Mammoth Mountain, where the new interpretive center offers stunning panoramas of the surrounding peaks and interactive displays about local history and geology. Or drive the easy 48 miles to the Eastern Gates of Yosemite National Park, a national treasure whose 1,200 square miles of wilderness showcase granite domes, spectacular waterfalls, deep valleys, grand meadows, and ancient giant sequoias. Guests can enjoy a round of golf at Sierra Star, California’s highest 18-hole course, which incorporates lush, tree-lined fairways, well-trapped greens and numerous lakes, ponds, waterfalls and streams. Abundant fishing and proximity to Yosemite National Park have long made Mammoth as appealing in summer as it is in winter. Rainbow Falls and Devil’s Postpile National Monument also are a short drive away from the hotel. The Westin’s concierge service can offer advice and make arrangements to help guests make the most of these summer activities.

With all the activity of exploring, you’re sure to build up an appetite. Don’t let the rustic mountain environment fool you: The Westin Monache Resort, Mammoth boasts sophisticated dining options to delight the most discerning palates. Whitebark, our in-house restaurant, offers unique regional cuisine, an exceptional wine list, and ambience that is at once elegant and relaxed.
