Description
One of California's more popular four-season mountain resorts, Mammoth Lakes provides access to the recreational facilities and points of interest in Inyo National Forest. For more than half a century, day-trippers and those committed for the longer haul have flocked to Mammoth Lakes and the challenging 11,053-foot Mammoth Mountain for downhill and cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and more recently for snowboarding and guided dog-sled and snowmobile tours. Snowfall averages 33 feet a year and the season often extends from early November to late May.
In addition to transporting skiers, mountain bikers and hikers, the Mammoth Mountain Scenic Gondola accesses the Eleven53 Interpretive Center , which offers spectacular views, interactive displays examining local geography and naturalist-led tours of Mammoth’s 11,000-foot summit; phone (800) 626-6684. Also completed were a 17,000-square-foot day lodge and The Village at Mammoth, a 20-acre complex of shops, restaurants and condominiums.
The Mammoth Lakes Repertory Theatre, 100 College Pkwy., offers performances August through May; phone (760) 934-6592.
Summer visitors come for camping, hiking, climbing, canoeing and kayaking, fishing, golfing, horseback riding, mountain biking and swimming. The spectacular oranges, reds and golds of autumn's aspens, cottonwoods and willows greet leaf-peepers mid-September through mid-October.
