Discover Mammoth Today


9-26-2016 – Good morning from Mammoth Lakes we have clear skies today.

It’s going to be a perfect warm fall day to get out and enjoy some Fall colors, Hiking and of course some mountain biking.

As of 6:50 AM we have a 41 at the 8200 foot level, up at Main Lodge it’s 42 and we have a 44 up top with a NE wind to 26 MPH.

Highs today will be in the low 70’s in town with 60’s up on Mammoth Mountain and into the Lakes basin. After a hard frost last Friday lows have warmed back into the low 40’s at night.

Last weeks little cool down did have some rain in it. We ended up with a dusting on Bloody Mountain.

Falls colors should peak over the next two weeks, at this time the best color show is up in Rock Creek Canyon.


Whats up in Mammoth Lakes this week: 

Hiking is wide open now with access to all trails out of the lakes basin and in the eastern sierra. With a decent winter you will find local lakes and back country lakes all full with water. Creeks and Stream are all running at this time. Get out and enjoy a hike today.

Fishing is in full swing here in Mammoth Lakes. All area lakes a stream have been stocked for the summer and people are getting limits fast over the past couple weeks. 

Mountain Biking is now 100% wide. All the Inyo National Forest Trails and the Mammoth Rock Trail are ready for some fun riding. Please note the bike park is closed for the season, however you can go out and ride those trails for free now. 

The local Mammoth Lakes Paved trail system is now open up all the way up to Horseshoe Lake. All trails are cleaned up and ready to go. 

The Mammoth Lakes Basin is fully open with all lakes, marinas and campgrounds now open. Please note the forest service has a contractor build a new bike and walking path. The construction start by Pokenobe lodge and runs down to the Lake Mary Bridge. Expect detours, noise and dust at times.
