Actually, Mammoth is one of the warmer locations in the park, since it is at one of the lower elevations, but it rarely gets terribly warm there (usually no more than the mid-80s). Most of the dorms at Mammoth were built in the 1930s, except for the Aspen which was built in 1978 (and renovated last summer). You can find pictures of most of the dorms at:

Anyone know what the dorms look like at Mammoth Hot Springs? Gonna start working there soon...Never been don't know what to expect. And the weather? I am thinking more on the cooler side?

Hi! Anybody working in Canyon Village this summer? I arrive in late May, and its my first time working there. I'm super excited, but have a lot of questions.

Virgin Mobile uses CDMA and actually pays Verizon to use their towers, so you would be in the same boat as Bev.

How about Virgin?

Yes, I had Sprint last year, and as long as you're not wanting to use it for data, then you'll be fine just about everywhere (there's signal) except the Canyon area. The only reason I changed is because I was living in an NPS apartment, and they don't provide Internet service to people living in those buildings. The data speeds were horrendous, so I switched to Verizon so I could have better Internet access.  My Sprint worked just fine for voice and texting, though.

I have sprint. I'm guessing if Verizon works out there Sprint should too, or will at least be useful enough.

The only real "dead zones" are the areas away from the developments.  You'd be working/living in one of the developments and would likely have at least voice and texting service, UNLESS you are assigned to Lake, Bridge Bay, or Fishing Bridge, which currently have no cell service at all (they're working to fix that, however, but I don't think it'll be in place by this summer).  The Tower area also has no coverage, and that's not going to change any time soon.

If you're on AT&T or T-Mobile (or another GSM carrier), you'll have better coverage at Canyon and Grant, whereas if you have Verizon, Sprint, U.S. Cellular or the like (CDMA carriers), you'll have better coverage around Mt. Washburn, Old Faithful, Grant, and Mammoth.  (There are two towers at Grant, so just about all carriers have decent coverage in that area).
