"After running up and down mountains all over the globe, the Ezakimak remains one of the most excitingly beautiful events I've been a part of."

     -Tim Tollefson, 2015 Ezakimak King of the Mountain


Challenge yourself on a 5k race from the base to the summit of Mammoth Mountain at 11,053ft on cross country skis, snowshoes, or a fat bike. The Ezakimak event allows participants to climb up 2,000ft in elevation on the famed Kamikaze mountain bike trail - but in reverse. Spectators and family can join in to cheer on their athlete and have fun at the Sunrise Summit Party with an evening gondola ride up to the top, music and kid-friendly activities.

Date: Saturday, April 15, 2017


About Ezakimak

Ezakimak is Kamikaze spelled backwards. The legendary Kamikaze mountain bike trail spans from Mammoth Mountain's peak, weaving through the "backside" of the mountain and finishing at Main Lodge. We're bringing summer fun to the snow with a backwards race, sending you uphill.
