With its deep Eastern Sierra snowpack and SoCal-worthy sunshine, spring skiing and riding here is epic on the high-altitude bowls, bumps and salted groomers. The ski season is one of the longest in North America. Sometimes it even lasts until July. The resort is famous for its spring skiing events. Many youngsters go there to celebrate Spring Break. Slope-side barbecues and the traditional Pond Skim, when people use their skis and snowboards to straight-line across a 110-foot pond, are huge attractions. Mammoth is a preferred family destination for spring skiing because of its 3,500 acres of skiable terrain.
