When you think 4th of July, you probably think: fireworks, cookouts, and beach-side festivities. When the people at Mammoth think of 4th of July they think: skiing, golfing, and mountain biking.
Mammoth Mountain had a record year for snowfall, which means they’ll be open through July 5. Even though they have snow, its still summer, and they’re opening their Mountain Bike Park on June 25. Mountain biking and skiing in the same day—an outdoor enthusiast’s dream come true. To make things even better, The Sierra Star golf course, located just five miles from Mammoth Mountain opened June 11, and is collaborating with the mountain for 10 days to provide skiers with discounted golfing if they skied that day.

Take the cable car up to the High Camp at Squaw Valley to experience breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe while enjoying your favorite activities.
