I don’t think that Mike officially asked El to the Snowball. It was a little secret between Hop and El; Mike was really only there because Joyce told Will to tell him to go. And honestly, even if he had the guts to, I don’t think Mike would’ve asked her. He thought it was too dangerous and stuff. So when Hopper asked if El could have one night out? That was all him. Obviously she had been gushing about it all year and he knew it would make her happy and live a normal teenage life and he just couldn’t say no. And I don’t think it was like ‘hey kid do you wanna go to the snowball’ I think it was ‘kid, Nancy is waiting to take you dress shopping you’re going to the snowball’ (because of COURSE Nancy took her shopping).
