Challenge Yourself on a Guided Climbing Adventure 

Our newest big mountain adventure – the Via Ferrata, which means “iron path” in Italian, is a network of climbing routes on the rugged cliffs of Mammoth Mountain. Each route includes steel cables, iron rungs and a suspended bridge that are all fixed to the rock to assist climbers upwards as well as securely attach them to the rock for safety. With 6 different climbing routes that progress in difficulty, Via Ferrata is the perfect alpine activity for families, groups or individuals. No previous climbing experience required.

Two-Wheeled Fun for All Ages & Skill Levels

With some of the most radical terrain in the country, 80+ miles of singletrack offering plenty of jumps, berms and drops to feast on, Mammoth is the biggest, baddest and best bike park in the U.S. Our beginner-friendly Discovery Zone is the best place to learn and is specifically designed to make progression easy. The rugged geology of the Eastern Sierra combined with natural and man-made features – like step-ups, wall-rides and pavers – delivers the ultimate high-alpine riding experience.
