The Best Events Happening this November in Mammoth Lakes

It’s finally here. The 2023/24 winter season has arrived and there is nothing but snow in the forecast. Alright, winter isn’t here yet, but Mammoth Mountain’s opening day is one of the best events happening this November in Mammoth Lakes.

That alone is worth coming to town to check out. Along the way, you’ll enjoy the last of the fall colors and if you’re lucky you’ll even catch an early-season storm. Before you can make your first turns of the season you’ll need gear, so stop by the ASO Mammoth shop for the best ski and snowboard rentals in Mammoth Lakes!

Mammoth Mountain Opening Day 11/10/23

The mountain may not be completely covered in snow for opening day, but there’s certainly enough stoke to make this one of our favorite events of the entire year.

Come out and see Wooly take the first chair and turns of the season at 8:30 am, followed by a raffle and live D.J. Of course, in between you’ll get a chance to make the first turns of your season too! 

Tamarack XC Opening Day 11/18/23

You don’t have to make downhill turns to get on the snow this month thanks to Tamarack Lodge opening for cross-country skiing this month.

There isn’t a better way to see the Lakes Basin then on a pair of skis. Don’t worry if you’ve never tried cross-country skiing. Tamarack is home to lessons, rental gear, and even guided tours so that everyone can get on the snow.

Mammoth Track Club Turkey Trot 11/23/23 7:30 am

Get some exercise and fresh air before filling up at Thanksgiving dinner with the Mammoth Track Club! Register at the link above and then start stretching to get ready for the run!

Holiday Tree Lighting 11/24/23 5:00 pm

It may be hard to believe that the holidays are nearly here, but after seeing the tree light up in the middle of Mammoth Lakes Village, you’ll feel the holiday spirit!
