We get it, winter is over. And while we are bummed about that, there’s no reason the summer can’t be just as enjoyable, powder days aside. If you find yourself in the Mammoth Lakes area this summer, here are 5 Senger approved activities to keep the stoke alive!
Go Skiing/Snowboarding! Seriously!
You heard that right, Mammoth is open until July 28th this year. We’re not kidding. Get on the hill for some morning summer corn before the snow gets too soft.
Hike to an alpine lake
There’s a reason they named the town Mammoth Lakes. Mammoth is home to hundreds of accessible lakes, all with their own charm and personality. Some of our favorite day hikes include crystal lake, TJ & Barret lakes, Duck lake, and McLeod lake. Head over to www.mammothtrails.org to find the perfect hike for you.
Go Mountain Biking
Hit the trails on wheels instead of skis. Mammoth is home to some of the best mountain biking in the country. White knuckle it off the top of the Panorama Gondola on Skid Marks, or take a long cruise down Off the Top.
Insider tip: If you don’t want to pay for a lift ticket, you can have a friend drop you off at Horseshoe lake and cruise downhill all the way into town on the Lakes Basin bike path.
Sierra Star is an incredibly fun and beautiful golf course located right in town at Mammoth. Plus, the altitude makes the ball go 20% farther. If you’re really feeling up for a challenge, go for the ultimate trifecta: ski, bike and golf all in the same day!
Grab a Beer and a Burger at Mammoth Brewing Company
If you’re worn out from a long day on the mountain/trails/golf course, there’s no better way to end the day than an ice cold Epic IPA paired with the Damn Good Burger from Mammoth Brewing Company. Yes, it’s a $15 burger, but it is damn good. Their outdoor patio is one of our favorite places to hang out and enjoy the fresh mountain air.
