E-bike, Stargaze, Rock Climb, Hike At Ski Resorts This Summer
Chelsea Clapham and her family began snowboarding at Mammoth Mountain four years ago. They enjoyed it so much that they return to the resort year-round. “We like summer and fall up there almost as much as winter,” said Clapham, who lives in Santa Clarita with her husband, Shaun, and two kids. “We have family friends who let us use their condo, so we’re hooked.”
Elsewhere in the West, travelers like the Claphams are heading to ski resorts that offer summer activities, including e-mountain bike outings, stargazing programs and kids camps, and, in some cases, deals on lodging. Cooler weather is a plus too, thanks to their higher-elevation settings.
Clapham said her 8-year-old daughter likes Mammoth’s Adventure Center at the Main Lodge, which offers zip lines, a climbing wall and mountain biking. There’s also a via ferrata, which means “iron path” in Italian, for climbers to clip onto steel cables and suspended bridges fixed to the rock. The hiking and rock climbing experience opens June 26.
