Now that Mammoth Mountain’s opening day has passed, you might think that the most important date on the calendar has too. While we’re as excited about the 2018/19 season as anyone, the truth is that there are plenty of other awesome events to fill up the entire season.
As much as we love riding and exploring all Mammoth Mountain has to offer, at ASO Mammoth we love interacting with the Mammoth Mountain community so you can bet we have these Mammoth Mountain events marked on our calendar!
December 1st and April 6th – Ikon pass Holder Early Ups
There’s nothing quite like starting the day off with an early morning run that has no one else or even any other tracks on it yet. If you’re an Ikon Pass Holder, then December 1st and April 6th l is your best chance to do just that.
Starting at 7:30 am up to 10: am, Mammoth Mountain will be open exclusively to Ikon Pass holders. If that’s not good enough, Mammoth is also offering a complimentary hot breakfast at
McCoy station. The hot breakfast only lasts as long as supplies do, so if you’re an Ikon Pass Holder turn in early on November 30th and cross your fingers for a storm so you can ride the best Mammoth has to offer before anyone else.
February 3rd and 10th – Unbound Halfpipe and Slopestyle
Mammoth Mountain’s Unbound Terrain Parks are legendary due to their history of pushing skiing and riding forward with innovative features as well as launching the careers of plenty professionals, and on February 3rd and 10th the best riders across Mammoth Mountain will be competing to qualify for the USASA National Championships.
Whether you think your riding deserves attention, want to win some free Mammoth gear, or just want to watch the best riders on the mountain throw everything they’ve got, the Unbound Series is the perfect way to spend your day on the mountain and is open to everyone. If you want to see Mammoth’s legendary halfpipes in action, then February 2nd and 3rd’s contest will be a must for you. If you’re looking for some more diverse riding, then you will have to check out the slopestyle contest on February 9th and 10th.
April 21st – Mammoth Mountain Pond Skim
With the season just getting started it’s hard to think about celebrating it ending, but by the end of April you might be ready for some warmer weather. Whether you want to celebrate spring or just want to see skiers and snowboarders dressed in the most ridiculous costumes you could imagine, the Mammoth Mountain Pond Skim is sure to entertain.
Skiers and Snowboarders dressed as everything from Elvis to Batman skim across (and more often than not crash) into a man-made pond while onlookers enjoy the warming weather at this event, making it a must-see. Of course, if you’re not afraid of a little cold water and have a set of neon ski pants, you could also try to impress the crowd by skimming the pond yourself! These are only a few of the events that Mammoth Mountain has going on this season. For a full list, check out the Mammoth Mountain events calendar to make sure this is your best season yet.

the team at ASO Mammoth a call or stop by on your way up the mountain!
