Merry Fishmas Eve, we are expecting some snow & rain showers today with a winter advisory for Saturday from 5am to 5pm. 

Highs today around 50 in Mammoth Lakes, with lows in the 30’s.  Highs on Saturday around 37 in Mammoth with a 42 in Crowley Lake.  

Snow is likely on Saturday down to 6000 feet with 1-3 inches possible around Hwy 395 and the Crowley area. Mammoth Lakes is forecast to pick up 4-8 inches with 10+ inches possible int he Lakes Basin and over Mammoth Mountain Ski area.

By Sunday we start to warm up a bit and then next week things get spring like with highs in the upper 60s by Wednesday and Thursday

Good news, with the Lakes Basin is 100% melted out, (get ready for snow again) the Town and Forest service have worked hard to get the road and lakes basin bike path 100% open for walkers, bikers, cars and hikers.  The snow line is around 9200 feet, lower in shady spots.   Lake Mary Marine is already open if you want to get out on the lake.

Good Morning from Mammoth Lakes! #mammothstories #visitmammoth #discovermammoth #mammothsnowman

Mammoth Lakes Activities: Skiing and Snowboarding on Mammoth Mtn continues with a 12-50 inch base out on the hill. They are grooming out 15 trails at night and there are about 20 off the groomers trails still open for your fun in the snow. Check out our snow report at this link at MammothSnowman.com.

Mountain Biking: The snow line has shot up to over 9200+ feet in many locations, a bit lower in shady areas.   The Inyo National Forest Mountain Bike Trails are now 100% open again.

Trails that are ridable in the mammoth mountain bike park are:  The Uptown & Downtown loop from the Village to the Paper Route Junction, Big Ring, Paper Route, The Lakes Trail and Juniper.   We hear the bike park will open on Memorial Day Weekend if not a bit sooner.

We will be updating our Mtn Bike Blog a couple times a week so it’s time to ride so check out our March update.

Road Biking season is on, it’s a bit to cold to ride early in the am but by late morning conditions are perfect. My advice is to ride out from the Green Church just south of town off of 395.

Most of our local paved town paths are also now all melted out. These paths offer miles and hours of safe walking with some awesome views and also some forested sections.

The Mammoth Meadow is also dry and ready for a walk thru, not many years you can stroll thru this area in April without snow.

More updates to follow…. Snowman out!

Events – What’s up and coming here in Mammoth Lakes?

Mountain Biking Mammoth Lakes, CaliforniaMountain Biking – Mammoth Lakes is home to miles and miles of free trails and forest service roads to ride on in the Inyo National Forest.

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.

Fishing Mammoth Lakes, CaliforniaFishing – The Mammoth Lakes area is home to some fine local fishing, we are also your gateway to fishing the entire eastern sierras.

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.

2014-07-14_1015Hiking – Mammoth Lakes is a access to thousands of miles of hiking trails. During the summer and fall you will find the best local conditions and the least amount of snow to deal with.

Here is a link to one my favorite hikes in the Mammoth area. Try out the Crystal Lake Trail Hike.

Mammoth Lakes BasinThe 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.

Spring to Winter and Back to Spring in Mammoth Lakes

IMG_1908Hey Snowman here with you… It’s March 9th, 2015 at 10:30AM.

On Sunday we had a high of 61 on my deck here at 8200 feet, we also had some very hazy sunshine.

The air looked very dirty as you looked off towards the whites.

Over the past couple yeas that has meant dust and smog from China has made it all the way across the pacific into the Owens Valley. All that should clear out in the next 24 hours.

IMG_1792Today we can expect a high of 61 in town with a high at Main lodge around 47, lows will be in the upper 20s.

Winds today are out of the NE at this time, checking the ski patrol site winds are gusting to 64 up top this morning out of the NE.

Expect winds to change to the SW on Tuesday ahead of a incoming storm system that will bring rain and snow to Mammoth Lakes on Wednesday.

Snow levels during this system should start out around 6500 feet and come up to 7500 by Wednesday afternoon. We could see a dusting to a inch in town and 1-2 inches over Mammoth Mountain.

Beyond Wednesday we should be clearing out and warming up again for a great March weekend coming up. Highs will be in the 50s to low 60s in the area with lows in the upper 20s.

Skiing and Snowboarding are on with 60 groomed out trails a night and about 60 off the groomers trails still open for you fun in the snow.

Mountain Biking is on below the 8000 foot level, however you will find some snow patches in the shade in a few spots. The trails out of shady rest are all in prime condition, you would think it is late June not early march.

Also the Inyo National Forest Mountain Bike Trails are all open now, with just a few patches of snow you can walk or ride over.

Road Biking season is getting the earliest start ever, it’s a bit to cold to ride early in the am with lows in the 20s but by late morning conditions are perfect. My advice is to ride out from the Green Church just south of town off of 395.

Most of our local paved town paths are also now all melted out. These path offer miles and hours of safe walking with some awesome views and also some forested sections.

The Mammoth Meadow is also dry and ready for a walk thru, not many years you can stroll thru this area in March without snow. Have a great day… Snowman out!
