Mammoth Lakes’ Best May Events

Here at Mammoth Bound, we know that most people come to Mammoth Lakes for the beautiful mountains, lakes, and trails, but end up staying for the community that we’re lucky to call home.

The best way to experience the Mammoth Lakes community is by getting out in it, and we have the perfect opportunities to do just that with our list of Mammoth Lakes May events below. These are just a few of our favorite things going on around town this May, so start planning your visit to Mammoth Lakes with Mammoth Bound now so that you can experience everything Mammoth Lakes has to offer!

Mammoth Mountain Opens for Summer Activities May 27th 

There are enough mountains throughout the Eastern Sierra area to do just about any type of outdoor sport you could imagine, but there is only one mountain that offers skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, ziplining, and a Via Ferrata all at once.

The end of the ski season changes every year at Mammoth Mountain due to snow conditions and weather, but this year the mountain is scheduled to close for skiing and snowboarding on Memorial Day weekend and open for mountain biking on May 27th

Mountain biking is only scratching the surface of what’s possible at Mammoth Mountain though. There’s also the Mammoth Mountain Adventure Center which includes a climbing wall, ropes course, and zipline along with a Via Ferrata on Mammoth Mountain’s slopes.

Via Ferrata is a climbing route bolted into the rock which is perfect for families of all ages and sizes no matter how familiar they are with climbing. 

You can also enjoy the summer sunshine by playing the first round of the year at Sierra Star Golf Course which also opens on Memorial Day weekend this year. Just make sure you don’t get too lost in the mountain views from the greens and fairways and forget to finish your round!

Of course, you can also ski and snowboard at Mammoth Mountain throughout most of May thanks to Mammoth Mountain’s high elevation and deep snowpack. We’ve even had a few storms this May which will make the spring skiing even better as Mammoth Mountain ends the ski season on Memorial Day weekend!

All of these activities depend on weather and conditions, so keep up to date with Mammoth Mountain’s summer activities by visiting their website here or following them on social media!
