Lung–burning fun for all at the Ski Mountaineering Challenge. Starting from Main Lodge, participants will skin their way through five ascents on Mammoth Mountain to complete this battle against themselves and the terrain. Ski mountaineering (SkiMo), a high-altitude up and down challenge imported from Europe, is rapidly becoming one of the hottest new winter sports in North America. Mammoth's Ski Mountaineering Challenge is completely in-bounds, offering a safer and more convenient route than in the backcountry, opening this new opportunity to competitors of all skill levels.

Recreational Course:Featuring five (5) transitions and 2,500 vertical ft of gain.

Yodler will be serving up delicious Bavarian cuisine (for purchase) on the outside deck.
