We offer complimentary shuttle service to both courses, transporting guests upon request in our 11-passenger van. Speak to the concierge for arrangements or to book tee times.


Miles and miles of well-maintained trails converge on Mammoth, leading you through pine-tree corridors and mountain lakes, all with enchanting vistas of the Sierra Mountain range. Take a leisurely scenic stroll, enjoy a fun family ramble, or go all-out scaling one of the peaks—there’s a trail for everyone.

Mountain Biking

When the skiing and snowboarding season is over, Mammoth Mountain becomes a mountain biker’s haven. The bike park is one of California’s largest, offering more than 85 miles of single-track trails for riders of all levels. Take the gondola to the summit for expansive Sierra views and a thrilling ride down.

Rock Climbing

World-class rock climbing for all levels is available throughout the Mammoth region—try them out on your own or with an organized tour. New to climbing? The Adventure Center at the resort village features a 35-foot climbing wall for learning the ropes, plus an exciting zip line.

Scenic Gondola Ride

For a relaxing way to experience the area’s most spectacular views, ride the gondola to Mammoth Mountain’s 11,053-foot summit. The breathtaking panorama at the top takes in the Minarets, Mono Lake, and 400 miles of Eastern Sierra peaks that average 12,000 feet. If you’re feeling energetic, take one of several hiking trails down—or just cruise back peacefully on the gondola.
