What We Love

Every spring and summer, Mammoth Lakes comes alive with annual music, food, wine, and other festivals.

What to Know

Early Spring and Late Fall in the Mountains can be snowy and muddy, so make sure that you consider wedding dates carefully.

As a ski resort, certain winter dates are more expensive than others, so make sure to consider the winter schedule of events when selecting your wedding date.
