The temperatures are rising and winter is slowly but surely on its way out, but that doesn’t mean the fun at Mammoth Mountain and Mammoth Lakes is leaving too.
If you haven’t gotten to Mammoth Mountain enough this year, there is enough snow for the base to stick around until the middle of summer. Plus, you have all of the fantastic spring events at Mammoth Mountain and in Mammoth Lakes on the table as well. In fact, there is so much going on during spring that the team at ASO Mammoth has put together a list of just a few spring events happening to help you plan your spring trip.
Check out our list below, and if you need any new gear before you ski, bike, or hike stop by ASO Mammoth on your way up!
With the incredible number of creative features spread out over Mammoth Mountain’s terrain parks, it’s hard to imagine adding more unique and progressive features. Somehow, the Mammoth Terrain Park team does exactly that with Holy Bowly.
Holy Bowly is a weeklong event where the Mammoth Terrain Park team goes above and beyond by creating and gathering unique features like spines and bowls into a single run that allows riders and skiers to push their creativity to the limit.
Take advantage of lines and features you’ll find nowhere else by riding Holy Bowly or sit back and watch as professionals wow you with their creativity and skill. Holy Bowly will take place at South Park with invited riders and media only on April 15th through the 19th and the park opening to the public on April 20th through the 21st.
If you’re looking for a more relaxing way to enjoy Mammoth Mountain in the spring, then check out the Summit Sunset Party on April 27th.
For $44 ($39 for youths and seniors) adults can ride to Mammoth Mountain’s summit on the Panorama Gondola and enjoy a sunset from the top of the world. Guests will not only be treated to a breathtaking sunset (weather permitting), but they’ll also have food, music, and indoor and outdoor games to enjoy. If that’s not enough for you, don’t worry. The Winter Ezakimak finish line will be set at the summit with participants finishing throughout the evening and looking for someone to celebrate with.

If you’re unfamiliar with mountain biking on Mammoth Mountain during the summer then you probably don’t know about Kamikaze, one of the most popular biking trails on the mountain.
When there’s still snow on the trail cross-country skiers, fat bike riders, runners, and snowshoers all journey up the mountain instead of down which is why the name is Ezakimak, or kamikaze backwards. No matter what your preferred method of travel up the 2,000-foot ascent is, or even if you are only there to support friends and family who are participating, the Summit Sunset Party will be waiting at the top for you!
If the spring snow isn’t for you or you just want to try something different, don’t be afraid to fish in Mammoth Lakes and the surrounding area.
The fishing season begins on April 27th, AKA “Fishmas.” If you have a California Sport Fishing License, then on opening day you can fish for some of the best trout in the world as they look for their first good meal of the year. Once you choose a body of water to fish in, check for regulations and tips on fishing there as the lakes and streams in the area are all unique!
