How much more exciting could things get here in Mammoth Lakes?
According to Josh from Mammoth Lakes:
Mammoth Mountain has just announced that they will stay open for top to bottom skiing until July 4th! Take advantage of the awesome weather this month and ski, bike, golf in the same epic day. Ski on amazing spring snow in the morning then hop on your mountain bike in the afternoon for the ultimate mammoth day.
The month of June is the perfect time to adventure in the mountains. Use Mammoth Lakes as your base camp and take a trip to one of the stunning national parks and scenic hotspots close by. Access to Yosemite National Park is now available and Bodie State Historic Park is open and ready to give you a true wild west experience. Mono Lake and the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest are also close by.
Longer days mean more fun in the sun enjoying the wildflower bloom while hiking or hanging out at some of the best events in California. Don’t miss events like the action packed Monster Energy Motocross and the premiere Mammoth Half Marathon and 5K. June has also been dubbed as “Learn to Fish” month, so it’s time to get out on the water and cast a line for the first time.
If that’s not enough to keep you here or make you want to come for the summer, I don’t know what will.
Come on and enjoy the festivities with us!
Winter storms have packed the snow into Mammoth Lakes, Incline Village and Alpine Village. In about two days, up to 36 inches of snow were dumped on Mammoth’s summit, while folks at slightly lower elevations saw up to 20 inches of snow.
According to the National Weather Service the totals marked one of the biggest single storms the region has seen in several years.
The storm also brought heavy rain to coastal areas of Northern California. In Monterey, San Benito, Santa Cruz and Santa Clara counties, more than an inch of rain fell in some areas. The Bay Area saw less rainfall but more than 500 lightning strikes. Strong wind gusts also were reported, according to the National Weather Service.
Temperatures in Southern California are forecast to inch upward by five degrees Wednesday, and a gradual warming trend should continue through Saturday.
The weekend could see an elevated risk of wildfires because of the expected warm offshore winds.
The weather service said a red flag warning could be in effect Thursday because of windy, dry conditions.
Don’t forget with that much snow there will be tree branches coming down, and road closures.

With over 100 lakes and streams, world-class trout fishing, miles of groomed hiking trails, kayaking, horseback riding, mountain biking, golfing, camping, and home to one of the world’s largest ski resorts – Mammoth Mountain, Mammoth Lakes seems to have it all.
No matter the season, there is always some kind of outdoor activity to do, young or old.
With Fall upon us, Mammoth Lakes is just going to get more beautiful. I can’t wait for the changing leaf colors, the holiday lights that will soon start appearing, and all the skiers bundled up as they come and go from a day of skiing.

Yosemite National Park
Fall is the perfect time to visit neighboring Yosemite National Park to see the changing-leaves season, not often captured on camera. The Entrance to the park is only 45 minutes away and in the fall you’ll practically have the park to yourself. Please note: The Tioga Pass road entrance to the park (access from Mammoth Lakes) is open typically through October unless it’s an early snow year. Please check road conditions prior to arrival.
