Discover Mammoth Today

10-5-2017 – 8 AM- Good Morning from Mammoth Lakes, expect clear skies with a warming trend.

Highs will be in the 60s in town today with 50s at Mammoth Mountain and up in the lakes basin. Lows are now in the 30s at night.

Things will warm up to around 70 in town by the weekend with 60s on Mammoth Mountain. Lows will still be chilly in the 30s at night.

No rain and snow in sight. Fall is looking to be dryer then normal, we will be relying on snowmaking to get things rolling this year at the ski area. We do expect a above normal with, but not a record breaking one. Look for December and January to be the biggest months for snowfall.

Fall Colors: are now going off in Mammoth Lakes and over the entire eastern Sierra. Get up here this weekend before the show starts to wane. 

Winter Sports start up again on November 9th, 2017, time to get in shape if you’re going to Ski or Snowboard this season. To get the full details of what is coming up for the new winter season check out the new MammothSnowman.com.

Mammoth Lakes Paved Trails are in great shape and are a great place to take a walk, run or bike ride. The best trail is the Mammoth Lakes Basin IMHO. Ride the shuttle up to Horseshoe Lake and ride 3.5 miles back to town.

Inyo Forest Bike Trails are also now all open with 100% snow free access. These trails tend to get warm mid day so ride them during the am hours. Here is the link to learn more about these trails:

All local Golf courses are open as is the Snow Creek Driving Range. Nothing like golf at 8000 feet.
