What we're about

Whether you want to "ride along" on someone else's trips, plan & host your own, or just ride with new friends on the mountain - Meet up with your skiing, boarding, and MTB'ing peeps here! Join the fun!

Mammoth Riders revel in skiing and boarding in the Winter and/or mountain biking and hiking in the Summer, and we want to share in the adventure with other like-minded individuals. Our goal is to offer a forum for skiing, boarding, and other mountain sports enthusiasts to get together, organize, host, or simply participate in group trips and adventures, and to promote and enjoy our sports in the most relaxed, fun, and social environment possible.

Overall, this group is social but laid back. We pretty much plan our trips well, and then play our “plan” by ear depending on each group’s dynamic. It works out quite nicely for the diversity and interests of our members!

If you are fun, adventurous, love the snow and/or MTB, and enjoy social networking and Chillaxin’, we welcome you!

You really should join our group if you like: Mammoth Lakes, Downhill Skiing, Boarding, Cross Country Skiing, Back Country Skiing, Mountain Biking, Condo-shares, Fun, happy, relaxed group dynamics, Planning and hosting trips, filling a few spots in your condo share, or simply joining along on trips that others have organized, Carpool Connections, After Slopes Social time, Happy Hours, Group Dinners, Sharing Cooking Secrets, Games, Entertainment, and talking story about your adventures on the slopes and otherwise!

ALL SKILL LEVELS AND SPORTING INTERESTS ARE WELCOME—We may even venture into summertime hiking, climbing, kayaking, and more, because Mammoth is so versatile, and our adventure palette is so diverse!

We plan group trips skiing/boarding/biking mostly at Mammoth, but encourage and welcome you to join in and plan and post adventures in the many other wonderful resorts both at home and abroad.
