Winter Activities Are Pretty Much Done
As of early June 2021, according to the Mammoth website, there are no lifts operating at Mammoth Mountain. This means winter-related activities like skiing and snowboarding will have to wait until the winter season begins again, which usually happens in November.
But Mammoth Is Open for the Summer Season
While you’ll have to wait to plow your way through fresh powder, Mammoth is now open for the summer season. This equally popular Mammoth season usually continues into the early fall. The main points of access and use for summer visitors to Mammoth include:
