View from Main Lodge of Paranoid Flats, Philippe's and Kiwi Flats

The upper terrain at Mammoth Mountain off of the Gondola and chair lift 23 is some of the most challenging terrain at the resort. It is very steep and should only be attempted by the most advanced skiers. This terrain is all rated "Double Black Diamond".

Also see our Mammoth Mountain resort guide and review and our back country guide to "Hole in the Wall".

From the top of chair lift 23 take a right and follow the ridge line. There will be a point where you will want to gain some speed to make your way up hill without a climb. At this ridge peak, one can cruise the ridge line to drop in on Paranoid Flats.

Stay left to find the entrance to rock lined Philippe's
