Discover Mammoth Today

2-20-2018 – 8 AM – Good Morning from Mammoth Lakes, we have clear skies in town today with about 1-2 inches of fresh snow.

Highs today are in the low 20s in town with highs in the 10s for Mammoth Mountain. Lows at night are around -5 to 0.

Mammoth Mountain is open with a 20-80 inch base with over 2000 acres of groomed out runs. Check out for all the details.

This winter has been a very dry one and at this time areas below the Village are snow free. That gives us a snow line of 8000 feet or just below that in shady spots.

Mountain biking is now wide open out of Shady Rest and all the Inyo Forest Trails. Get some turns in the morning and then after lunch hit the dirt while highs are in the low 60’s.

Our local parks and the skate park are also open for the kids to have fun. Along with the parks the town trail system is also open with the exception of the Lake Basin Path that is clear to twin lakes, but closed above that location.

The town ice skating rink is still open for a town of fun. For sledding and snow play most of the prime areas have no snow or just a few inches. If you want to sled hit up Woolly’s Sled park on the road to the main lodge. 

Winter Fishing is open on Hot Creek and the Upper Owens River, you can also fish the Pleasant Valley Reservoir at the bottom of the Sherwin grade.

Try taking a scenic drive up to the June Lake Loop and then back to Mammoth, the sights are soothing to the soul.

Hiking is now open half way up the Sherwin Lakes Trail and I just heard MC Gee Creek trail is also hike able for a couple miles.
