5 Mammoth Mountain Winter Activities Other than Skiing & Snowboarding

Mammoth Activities

For us here at ASO Mammoth, it’s hard to imagine doing anything on Mammoth Mountain other than enjoying the best snow the Eastern Sierras have to offer. Still, we understand that skiing and snowboarding isn’t for everyone and that Mammoth Mountain has much more to offer other than time on the slopes.

Whether you’re looking for a family friendly activity or to explore other winter sports activities, Mammoth Mountain has everything you need.

Here’s a quick list of activities other than Skiing and Snowboarding you can do while visiting Mammoth!

Snowmobile Adventures

If you aren’t going to ski down from Mammoth’s peak, what better way to see the beauty of the High Sierras than on a guided snowmobile tour?

Mammoth Mountain offers guided snowmobile tours that will satisfy everyone from first time drivers to speed junkies. While Mammoth’s snowmobile adventures makes for a great family fun, riders must be at least 5 years old to ride and at least 16 years old with a driver’s license and a parent to drive.

Mammoth’s Snowmobile Adventures is the only snowmobile tour company on the mountain and tours are based on conditions and availability, so check online or call before making plans!

Woolly’s Tube Park

Many ski parks across the country have tube parks, and Mammoth Mountain is no exception.

What sets Woolly’s apart from the crowd is the fact that every member of the family was considered in the creation process.

While children must be at least 42” to ride the tubes, there is also a snow play area so even the smallest children can get in on the fun and experience Mammoth snow. Plus, there is a heated deck with hot cocoa and adult beverages, so no matter your age there is something for you at

Woolly’s Snowcat Tours

Ok, you’ve had a few days of skiing and snowboarding wear you down but you still want to appreciate the beauty of the Eastern Sierras. What do you do? You schedule a Snowcat tour.

Instead of layering up to ride a snowmobile, ride through the mountains in the heated cab of a Snowcat on a guided tour that will not only take you to the top of the mountain but pass by the most spectacular views in the entire area on the way.

If that wasn’t good enough, Mammoth offers two tours that both come with a spread of delicious food at the top. For lunch, take the mid-day tour where you’ll find both adult and kid friendly foods waiting for you at the top of the mountain.

If you’re looking to relax, then you can take the Après tour where you’ll find a lighter spread that’s kid and adult friendly as well. To register your Snowcat tour, you must make a reservation two days in advance, so if you’re still looking for the perfect way to end you Mammoth Vacation register your Snowcat tour now!

Gondola Rides

While people will argue over what the best activity on this list is, we can say without a doubt that Gondola rides have the best reward for the least amount of effort. Take an enclosed Gondola cabin from the base of the mountain to the top and enjoy scenic views of the entire mountain range on your way up. Then, once you’ve been dropped at the summit, get all the pictures you could ever want at 11,000 ft. Plus, if you’re hungry there is the Eleven53 Café waiting at the top of the summit for all lunch-goers looking to enjoy a meal with a view through panoramic windows.

Don’t take our word for it, come on up to Mammoth Mountain and see everything there is other than Snowboarding and Skiing. Even if you don’t bring your gear and the snow looks too good to pass up, you can always stop by ASO Mammoth for the best ski and snowboard rentals
on the mountain.
