3-2-2015 – 7:08AM – Hello and thanks for stopping by DiscoverMammoth.com.
Mammoth Lakes picked up 3-5 inches of snow this weekend. While the ski area has picked up 12-16 inches of new from Main Lodge up. It’s looking like a winter wonderland up here.
Roads are currently R1 so chain up and SLOW down.
The forecast calls for cold, wind and snow showers today with clear skies Tuesday thru the up coming weekend. Highs will be in the 20s on Mammoth Mountain with 30s to low 40s in town. By Wednesday we should have highs at the ski area in the 40s with mid to upper 50s in town.
The skiing and snowboarding are the best they have been all year, time to make plans to head on up for some winter fun before spring hits.
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. Shady Rest is 95% snow free now so it’s wide open to start you dirt riding season.

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.
