#2 - Golfing - in the Winter

Golf clubs and a golf ball in the winter

Mammoth is one of those few special places where you can enjoy views of snowy mountain tops while you take a swing! The Bishop Country Club is open almost the entire year, which means you don't have to take a break from your game. Up for a real challenge? Check off two sports in one day by golfing in the early morning and hitting the mountain in the afternoon.

The whole town comes out for this event each year, and who could blame them? There will be a spectacular fireworks display, a torchlight parade and more. The whole event is set against the backdrop of Mammoth Mountain, and the town buzzes all night long.
