Despite the chill in the air, Mammoth knows how to usher in the holiday. You can learn exactly where to celebrate New Year’s Eve in Mammoth Lakes on your next winter holiday trip.

New Year’s Eve Family Fun and Fireworks

The New Year’s Eve Family Fun and Fireworks is a mainstay celebration in the hills of Mammoth, and one of the best community events in the area. For years, families have been coming to ring in the new year in the tranquil foothills of Mammoth Mountain. The cold January temperatures don’t stop them!

The celebration begins in the early evening and ends with a firework launch. Guests, including many visitors, welcome another year of excitement surrounded by the rolling hills of Mono County.

Leading up to the fireworks spectacle is a slew of fun family activities. You can play some New Year’s Eve games with the group such as corn hole, which is a bean bag tossing game; or take the kids to the face painting station for a complimentary new look.

Those without children in tow will appreciate the cash bar serving beer, wine, and other beverages, and all ages can indulge in the gourmet hot cocoa and snack bar.

All of this leads up to a fireworks celebration right outside the village gondola deck. The event is also expected to include a big Christmas tree. This towering tree glows triumphantly over the village and is a gorgeous sight to see. Pre-purchasing event tickets are highly recommended to ensure you get a spot at the lodge.

New Year’s Eve at Eagle Lodge

Few New Year’s Eve parties and events are as exciting and rambunctious as the one at Eagle Lodge.

This New Year’s Eve celebration definitely caters to adults, as opposed to the family-friendly games and fun at the Village Gondola. This 21+ event is a real party, with great live DJ music, incredible lights, a bar, welcoming drink specials for locals and visitors, and a whole lot of dancing. Unlike the Village Gondola event, the official New Year’s Eve celebration is at the stroke of midnight.

VIP tickets, which will include side-stage lounge access and a special midnight champagne toast, are also available. You will also get access to a VIP cash bar. All guests will receive fun New Year’s Eve party favors for the countdown, so make sure you come prepared to take it to 1 a.m. For visitors to Mammoth Lakes looking for a bumping party atmosphere and a big on-stage event, this is it.

Visitors come from all over the world to experience a thrilling type of vacation. While so many others are drawn to tourist-saturated islands down south, you will be vacationing a different way: partying in the mountains and having the adventure of a lifetime.

Mammoth Lakes is one of the most sought-after winter destinations in the country. Known for its authentic and iconic historic district, world-renowned ski lodges, conveniently located vacation rentals, and grand vistas, Mammoth has become the perfect getaway. As you can see from above, laid-back families and partygoers alike can celebrate the New Year at Mammoth.
