1-24-2015 – 7AM – Hello and thanks for stopping by DiscoverMammoth.com.
This weekend we are expecting highs in the into the 50s here in Town with highs in the 40s around Main Lodge.
Night time lows will continue cold at night in the low to mid twenties for continued snowmaking. Expect light winds in town and winds 45-60+ out of the NE over the top of Mammoth Mountain.
Here in town there is not much snow as we as experiencing the driest January ever on record. The snow level is about 8000 feet in the shade with all snow above 8500 in area that are not in direct sun light.
If you want to go sledding try Wolly’s Sledding park half way up to the main lodge. For Cross Country skiing Tamarack Cross Country ski center is wide open. All the forest service and shady rest trails have no snow at this time.
Mountain Biking is on below the 7500 level, however you will find some snow patches in the shade in a few spots. Bald Mountain would be a good ride with snow patches just near the top. Another great ride is Rock Creek Canyon, no snow and perfect conditions for a winter ride.
Road biking is on with perfect conditions starting out at the Green Church 5 mins south of Mammoth. Later this week we will have a full update on what’s ridable and what is not.
Winter Fishing is going well in the Upper Owens River, we will have a more detailed report on that later this week.
Mammoth Mountain has a 2-3 foot base at Main Lodge with up to 40 Inches up top. We are skiing on a machine groomed surface at this time.
Since it is low tide you will find some bare sports and floating rocks. Best to ski and snowboard out of the main lodge area until we get more snow. Canyon and Eagle should be used as access points for now.
Mammoth is making snow on a nightly basis to refresh and keep the snow conditions worth skiing. Great Job to the crew up there in exceptional dry conditions.
So the question we keep getting is it worth it to come to Mammoth? If you’re looking for 100% of the mountain and trails to be open hold off.
If you have a pass and just want to make some fun turns yes it’s still worth coming up to have some fun. If you’re buying a lift ticket just know Mammoth is not at is best right now, but still lot’s of fun with 30+ groomers in great shape and all parks open to some degree. Snowman out…

Events – What’s up and coming here in Mammoth Lakes?
This weekend we have some great events here in Mammoth, here is a link to the Mammoth Mountain Events Calendar so you can plan a head for all the fun scheduled in Mammoth Lakes & up on Mammoth Mountain.
During winter the new fat bikes are what you want to ride. They take on snow, dirt and pavement better then your standard mountain bike does. FYI: it’s not legal to ride fat bikes on roads that have been groomed.
You also have the world famous Mammoth Mountain Bike Park for downhill, cross country and hill climbing. They have over 75 miles of trails to ride. Click here for our Mountain Bike Report page.
Here in town stop by any of the local shops and you will get some great tips.
Click here for our Mammoth Lakes Fishing Report and Information page.
Here is a link to one my favorite hikes in the Mammoth area. Try out the Crystal Lake Trail Hike.
The Mammoth Lakes Basin is the gem of our local area. With everything from Camping, to Boating, Paddle Boarding, Fishing, Mountain Biking, Hiking and more. You will also find some cabins that you can rent in this area.
The Lakes Basin is full of 4 lakes you can drive to and dozens more you can hike to. Take some time to get to know this area on foot, a bike and in a chair from the shore line.
