The Mammoth Mountain, known for its early openings and late closings in the spring, will remain open to skiers and snowboarders through Aug. 6 despite a widespread heat wave, according to the ski resort. This “rare treat” has previously only occurred in 1995 and 2017.
“Following our historic and record-breaking season, we are stoked to announce that we’re staying OPEN for skiing and riding daily through Sunday, August 6,” Mammoth wrote in an Instagram post. “Conditions are changing daily. Operations and terrain will be limited, we will continue to update you on what will be open in the final days of the season.”
There is now no terrain for beginners, but it is still possible to shred outside the main lodge from top to bottom.
Mammoth Mountain accumulated more than 700 inches of snow this season, resulting in the extended opening.
In addition, skiers and riders who purchase an Ikon pass for the 2023–2024 ski season, which includes Mammoth Mountain, can use it immediately at the California ski resort, making the end of the season even more attractive.
While skiers and riders can still get a few more weeks out of the season, Mammoth is also preparing for mountain biking by removing snow and debris from trails in the lower and mid-mountain bike park trails. There are currently eight trails open on the lower mountain that can be ridden uphill on a bike park shuttle.
“Warm temperatures have been a huge help in melting what remains of our historic snowpack and should assist with more trails opening in the coming weeks,” the mountain posted.
To ensure that visitors can enjoy the breathtaking views year-round, the resort also offers scenic gondola rides to the summit at 11,053 feet.
