At This California Mountain, You Can Ski on the 4th of July Before Watching the Highest Fireworks Display in the U.S.
Most Americans will spend the 4th of July weekend with friends and family, maybe watching a parade or oohing and aahing over fireworks, hot dog in hand. Those looking to take the celebration up a notch should look to California's Mammoth Mountain.
For the second time ever, the popular destination has gotten approval to launch fireworks off the mountain’s 11,053-foot summit during its Freedom Bash on July 6. The spectacular display is the highest firework show in the U.S. and falls on a Saturday, naturally extending 2019’s 4th of July celebrations.
