The bad news:
I just recently acquired a job at mammoth mountain ski resort as a lift operator. I was wondering how the nightlife is there, since I will be there until April and I have never been there before.
There really is no nightlife in Mammoth Lakes, unless you like drinking in small bars with a 10-1 guy to girl ratio.
The good news:
If you're working as a lift operator you wouldn't be able to afford real nightlife anyways, so really, you're saving money here!
