Nestled at 8000 feet on the Eastern escarpment of the Sierra Nevada mountains, the small alpine village of Mammoth Lakes, California, is unique in its geography, landscape and people. Once a mining town gone bust, the Mammoth region is now dubbed “California’s Backyard Playground” and offers a wide spectrum of year round recreational opportunities. Mammoth enjoys over 300 days of sunshine, some of the deepest snowpack in North America and an endless backcountry filled with a multitude of lakes, wildlife, granite, and cobalt blue skies.
Challenge yourself to the steeps of Mammoth Mountain Ski Area, enjoy endless kilometers of pristine Nordic groomed trails at Tamarack Cross Country Ski Center, or enjoy the solitude of a backcountry ski tour thru the Sierra. Year-round fly fishing, hiking, camping, summer horseback riding, natural hot springs, snowmobiling, mountain biking and aprés ski add to the variety of multi-seasonal family fun offered in Mammoth. Nearby Yosemite National Park and Bishop offer some of the best rock climbing in the world and the desert heat of Death Valley is only a 2 hour drive away.
