7-2-2015 – 7AM – Welcome to Mountain Biking in Mammoth Lakes.
Current conditions are fantastic as we have been getting rain each afternoon from area thunderstorms. Looks like that will continue thru the July 4th weekend.
Took a ride thru the park this morning and I found moist dirt mixed in with some light rain falling. Most of the dust is gone for now, things are set up for a perfect weekend in the bike park.
If your coming up this weekend I would advise a rain jacket in your pack for the afternoon hours. We could see some heavy rain near strong thunderstorms once again.
The Mammoth Mountain Bike Park is open daily for the summer season. 95% of trail’s are now open from the Top of Mammoth Mountain down to the Village.
Gondolas 1 and 2 are open along with Discovery chair for access to the beginners bike park. The village bike shuttle is also up and running. Use this link for the mountains most current open trails report.
Mammoth Mountains next weekly downhill race will take place on July 10th. See ya out on the course for some fresh photos.
The Inyo National Forest Trails are the place to check out if you want to ride outside of the Park. All trails are clear and free of snow at this time. Surface conditions are dry at this time.
If your coming up to ride this weekend we are expecting to warm up. It’s going to feel like summer out.
