Hello and welcome to Discover Mammoth. This spring we have lot’s of activities and adventures for you to discover.
The current snow line in town is around 8200 feet with a few patch’s of snow in shaded areas down to the lower sections of town and out in the Shady Rest Area.
The ski area is open at this time with a base of 75-180 inches, skiing and snowboarding are now out of the Main Lodge area only.
Mountain Biking is now almost 100% wide open on the Inyo National Forest Trails and in the Shady Rest Area of town.
The local Mammoth Lakes Paved trail system is also melted and cleaned up below the Village and Eagle Lodge. These trails are great for walking, running and biking on.
Next up the Tamarack Cross Country Ski Center is 100% open thru this weekend with some great groomed trails up in the Mammoth Lakes Basin. It’s spring conditions so check with the Ski Center for the right wax.
If your looking for some local Road Biking try heading down 395 to the green church and you can ride out to the Owens river and beyond. You will want you cool spring ride gear on as highs in this area can still be in the 50s at this time of year.
Spring/Winter Fishing is still on with the Upper Owens River and Hot Creek open under stiff regulations. The regular fishing season starts the last Saturday of April this year. With a average winter snowfall wise there will be plenty of run off for this years fishing season. Here is a link to all the 2016 Fishing Events County wide.
Local area Camping is offered at the Mammoth RV Park at this time. If you plan on dry camping stoping a the visitors center when you come in town for current restrictions.
Other Spring ideas: Check out the local Fish Hatchery by the Mammoth Lakes Airport, a fun day trip is to check out the Laws Rail Road Museum near Bishop, also a trip to Mono Lake Visitor Center and walk along the shores is a lot of fun to see.
