Mammoth Caldera Burn

Want to test yourself by hiking through snow to the top of California’s highest lift-serviced peak? The Mammoth Caldera Burn is perfect for you.

Caldera Burn participants will begin the ascent of Mammoth Mountain from Canyon Lodge on April 16th starting at 7:30 am and will have until 1:30 pm to complete five ascents with skis and skins. Mammoth has created two different routes and classes for the event.

Mammoth Mountain Pond Skim

Still have enough left in the tank to have a blast on Easter Sunday at Mammoth Mountain?

Good, because Mammoth has saved the best for last.

At 2 pm on Sunday April 17th, Mammoth will hold its annual pond skim at Canyon Lodge. The pond skim is a crowd favorite because it involves costumed participants skimming across a manmade pond at the bottom of Canyon Lodge on skis and snowboards. The costumes, crashes, and crowds make the pond skim one of the best events of the year.
