Winters in Mammoth Lakes are famous for huge snow packs. Recently over 600 inches have fallen in one season – that’s over 50 feet! Mammoth Mountain Ski Area boasts one of the longest seasons in North America - commonly early November through June.
In addition to the phenomenal skiing and snowboarding you will find miles of trails for snowmobiling, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, all with magnificent views of the surrounding Sierra Nevada Mountains. For the more adventurous, try a backcountry trek into the John Muir or Ansel Adams Wilderness areas.
Summer, Mammoth’s “other” season, brings even more opportunity for recreation: Golf, hiking, horseback riding or just soaking in the sun. For the avid mountain biker, Mammoth Mountain Bike Park offers some of the most diverse and challenging terrain around and has hosted the NORBA world championships several times. The Eastern Sierra is also world famous for trout fishing. Numerous derbies and tournaments are held during the summer, or just find your own private stretch of river or lake.
Many other events are held throughout the summer; Mammoth Lakes Jazz Jubilee, Bluesapalooza and Festival of Beers, arts and crafts festivals, Fourth of July parade and fireworks, Fireman’s Picnic, just to name a few.
