for the busses, they have like green line red line and stuff to get to the different lodges. go to any lodge because you can get to the other lodges easily by skiing. about the village,hmmm there was a festival yesterday ( i got back today) at the village and if the village is what they say it is, it is a handful of half built stores and a couple bars. the town on main road is pretty small with shops and stuff. Mammoth is full of busses that will take you everywhere. if you're there, go to the hot springs too.
It doesn't matter if you're black or white, just beat it! just beatit! just beat it!
