#2 - Golfing - 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.
#3 - Thanksgiving Turkey Trot
Mammoth is for the sports enthusiasts who never stop going. Starting your Thanksgiving off with a race in Mammoth is just how it's done. Join the adrenaline lovers and get your blood pumping bright and early. There will be hot cocoa, raffle prizes and medals for a few lucky winners.
