What’s Happening in Mammoth Lakes this May

Mammoth Lakes is home to infinite options for outdoor activities, but if you’ve followed ASO Mammoth at all then you know that despite how much there is to do outside here, we love our community just as much as the mountains that surround it.

The amount of activities and events happening in May alone is a great example of why we love our home of Mammoth Lakes as much as we do. Check out a few of our favorite events happening in Mammoth Lakes this May below, and then stop by the ASO Mammoth shop for the best hiking, fishing, and paddle boarding gear and rentals in Mammoth Lakes!

Mammoth Mountain Opens for Summer

Spring skiing and snowboarding can reach all the way into May and beyond thanks to Mammoth Lakes’ high elevation and late season storms. That being said, Mammoth Mountain is currently scheduled to open for summer activities on May 27th and just in time for Memorial Day weekend.

That means you’ll be able to mountain bike at Mammoth Mountain where the snow has melted off the trails, which will likely be closer to the base of the mountain. For more updates on when Mammoth Mountain will be open for mountain biking, follow the mountain on social media and look for an official announcement on their website here.

If you’re looking to say hello to summer with something a little more relaxing, then Sierra Star Golf Course is also scheduled to open on Memorial Day weekend. Come and see if the higher elevation makes your driver hit further and stay for mountain views from the tee box!

Lastly, the Mammoth Mountain Adventure Center is also scheduled to open on May 27th just in time for any families looking to start their summer off in the sky. 

Mammoth Mountain’s Adventure Center includes a ropes course, climbing wall, and zip line for thrill seekers of any age, but that’s not all. Mammoth Mountain’s Via Ferrata is a great opportunity for families of any skill-level or number to climb some of Mammoth’s most impressive rocks on a safe and fun course.

Still have too much stoke to stop skiing or snowboarding? The Mammoth Mountain Yacht Club is the perfect place for you starting on May 27th going through Memorial Day Weekend. 

Although there are plenty of lakes near Mammoth Mountain, the only water that the Mammoth Mountain Yacht Club sails on is the snow left on the slopes. As the snow melt rises, there will be costumes and fun as skiers and snowboarders all over Mammoth take a high dive into summer.

Make sure not to miss the Yachtly Crew concert!
