Mammoth Lakes Overview
Mammoth Mountain is located in the eastern Sierras, 5-hours north of Los Angeles. Mammoth Ski Resort is renowned as a top Alpine skiing destination. In addition to skiing and snowboarding, Mammoth Mountain offers several snowmobile excursions and cross-country skiing trails. Many visitors only visit Mammoth in the winter and don't realize the volume of activities and attractions available in the summer. Mammoth Mountain is an active volcano and with that comes wonderful geologic formations and natural wonders. Hot springs are abundant along Highway 395 all around the region. Camping, hiking and fishing are popular summer activities throughout the region. Many small lakes are within a short distance of the town of Mammoth Lakes and are plentiful with stocked trout. Mammoth Lakes is not the small mountain community it once was and currently sustains a population near 8,000 with plans of future development to make it a world-class Alpine skiing destination that will rival any other major ski resort.
