What You Need to Know About Mammoth Mountain’s 2021 Opening Day

It’s happening!!!!!

If the cool weather and changing leaves already have you excited for winter, then the fact that Mammoth Mountain has announced their opening day for the 2021/22 season will likely have you heading for the mountains. At least, that’s what the Mammoth Bound team would be doing if we didn’t already live here!

We want everyone who visits Mammoth Lakes to love it just as much as we do, so if you want to make the most of your opening day visit then check out our guide to doing just that! Read all about it below, then use Mammoth Bound to book your Mammoth Lakes reservations and rentals!

Opening Day 2021 is November 13th

Mammoth Mountain will open for the 2021/22 season on November 13th.  This is typically around the time Mammoth opens every year, but that doesn’t mean that opening day will be your typical day at the mountain.

The Entire Mountain Will Not Be Open

How much of Mammoth is open for skiing and snowboarding on opening day changes every year based on the weather, but in general you can expect for only parts of the lower half of the mountain to be open in mid-November.

The first chair of the year will run from Mammoth Mountain Broadway express near Main lodge, which should give opening day riders a solid variety of terrain to choose from for their first turns of the season. 

Enjoy the Season’s Kickoff Party

If you can’t wait to get to the mountain and begin your 2021/22 season, then Mammoth Mountain has the perfect event for you.

The winter kickoff party starts at 7:30 am when the first chair of the season will head up the mountain. As excited as everyone at the kickoff party will be for their first runs of the year, there will also be slope-side deals on lift tickets, bundles, and lodging so that you can head into the season with plenty of momentum. 

Take Advantage of Opening Day Deals

Mammoth Mountain won’t be the only ones who are getting in on the opening day fun though. In fact, businesses all over town will be offering deals on everything from Mammoth Lakes lodging and ski rentals to food and drinks.

No matter what you’re looking for there’s a good chance that there is a deal on it around opening day, so make sure you visit all the stores in town to find the best deals in Mammoth Lakes!

Snow is Already Here!

Mammoth Lakes has already seen light snowfall! Although the snow isn’t quite enough to open up more of the mountain than the runs around Main Lodge for now, it is an encouraging sign that has all of Mammoth Lakes excited for the winter!

Although we still have around a month until opening day, there’s still plenty to do in Mammoth Lakes right now. Fall colors are in full effect at the moment and there are more trails than we can count to enjoy them from.

The fall weather is perfect for exploring the mountains around our town as well as the town itself, so if you can’t wait to be in the mountains then now’s the perfect time to visit! Mammoth Bound is the best place to make all of your Mammoth Lakes lodging and gear reservations, so you’re in the perfect place to plan your Mammoth adventure!
