Elevation Mammoth 2022

OMG! We are celebrating our 20th anniversary of Elevation Mammoth this year!

It’s been an incredible 20 years of meeting new people from around the world, making new friends (and a boyfriend or two along the way), and creating memories that I will always cherish.

We haven’t had a full-size Elevation Mammoth in 2 long years. 2020 was cancelled as California shut down and 2021 was a drastically reduced event due to COVID constraints.

But this year, we are letting loose and pulling out all of the stops! More events will be announced in the coming days, but be prepared for surprises all week, and the largest Elevation we’ve ever had.

I’ve produced Elevation for 20 years because it gives me so much in return. I have made lifelong friends every year at Elevation. The event has become a reunion of old friends bringing new friends to the party. Whether you are an Olympic hopeful or you prefer the bunny slope, you will have an amazing time on the hill, and you’ll follow it up by hanging with 2500 friendly, fun, and sexy Elevation attendees.

Don’t miss the event this year. Our 20th will be a year like no other.

See you on the hill,

Tom Whitman
Founder, Elevation

About Us

The Twentieth Annual Mammoth Gay Ski Week returns to the High Sierras and Mammoth Lakes, California.
Our core mission remains the same after 19 years: “2,500 riders. 12 major parties. 0 attitude.”
Elevation Offers
A fun alternative to the gay bar scene or party circuit. Yes, we have huge dance parties with nationally known DJs, but this weekend is about more than just those parties. We hold Elevation in one of the most beautiful settings in the country. When you come to Elevation, you experience some of the best spring skiing and snowboarding on the planet, at a world-class resort where the unbelievably long season lasts well into spring and even summer, with one of the highest average snowfalls in the country.
Elevation Draws
An amazing group of friendly, gregarious, unpretentious guys and girls who are here to have fun, ski and board, and meet new friends. I guarantee you'll leave this event with new friends and great memories. Though the majority of Elevation attendees are guys, there is always a great contingent of girls at our events. A good number of locals also come out and join us at the events. This is an inclusive event where we want anyone and everyone to feel welcome and have a great time. That said, this is definitely a gay invasion of Mammoth Lakes, in the best possible way.
