World Famous Spring Skiing
Mammoth Mountain Ski Area is currently the only ski area open in California or Nevada. Chairlifts run out of Main Lodge on spring hours (7:30am to 3pm) daily. Skier services are available at Main Lodge including rentals, private lessons, cafeteria, and it wouldn’t be spring without the bar open on the sundeck. Mammoth Mountain is open from top to bottom with 3,100 vertical feet of skiable terrain. Terrain park features include a variety of boxes, rails and jumps as well as the 450-foot-long, 18-foot high Super Pipe. Spring Fest Value Season lift tickets are just $63 a day for adults.
Outdoor Fun Off the Slopes
Visitors to Mammoth will enjoy 18-holes at Sierra Star Golf Course, opening for the summer on Friday, May 25. Explore the Mammoth Lakes area with a day trip to Reds Meadow starting May 26. The Mammoth Lakes Basin is now open for fishing season. Tioga Pass (Hwy 120 from Mammoth to Yosemite Valley) is now open for summer. The Wild West Round-up at the Village at Mammoth on Memorial Day weekend will feature a mechanical bull, country line dancing and a kids’ petting zoo.
This is a great time of year to shop in Mammoth – find ski equipment and winter clothing on sale, as stores around town make room for summer goods.

Shoppers will find deals up to 60% off items from Bogner, Prada, K2 Skis, Spyder, Helly Hansen, DNA, Orage, Burton, Volcom, Billabong and more.
