Mammoth Announces Memorial Day Weekend Operations Plan


The biggest spring skiing operation in the country right now is unsurprisingly Mammoth Mountain in California. Mammoth still has insane snow depths, with 142 inches at the Main Lodge, 175 inches at McCoy Station, and 195 inches at the Summit. With Memorial Day Weekend coming up, they’ve let people know what to expect.

From Friday through Memorial Day, they’ll have the following lifts open: Broadway (1), Stump Alley (2), Face Lift (3), Roller Coaster (4), High Five (5), Unbound (6), Chair 8, Cloud Nine (9), Gold Rush (10), Discovery (11), Chairs 12, 13, 14,  Eagle (15), Schoolyard (17), Chair 23 and the Upper and Lower Panorama Gondola. There will be limited services out of the Canyon & Eagle Lodges, which is due to the construction of a new high-speed six-pack chairlift.

The major event of the weekend will be the Mammoth Yacht Club. On Saturday, they’ll host their Second Annual Boat Races over at the Main Lodge, which will see participants race down in cardboard vessels. Other weekend activities will include snow tubing at McCoy Station and live music.

They also described their plan for operations following Memorial Day, where the lift operating hours will shift to 7:30 am-1 pm. The Broadway (1), Stump Alley (2), Face Lift (3), High Five (5), Unbound (6), Discovery (11), Chair 12 and 23 chairlifts will remain open. The Panoramic Gondola will be going through a summer maintenance project starting on May 30th. It is scheduled to reopen on June 17th. Mammoth is expected to remain open until at least the end of July.

The full details are below, which include a great photo from Peter Morning of the legendary Glen Plake.
