Mammoth-Yosemite Airport caters for tourist routes, and connecting flights are available from Los Angeles and San Francisco. Alternatively, you can follow Route 395 north from LA, or drive the seasonal road east from the coast.

Getting Around the Mammoth Lakes Region

Activities in Mammoth Lakes, CA

Summer or Winter, Mammoth Lakes is a Fabulous California Destination

Located in California's Sierra Nevada mountains, Mammoth Lakes offers something for all outdoor enthusiasts. It's a leading ski resort, a place to hike, and a sightseer's dream, while there are cultural events in the nearby area throughout the year.

A Fantastic Skiing Destination

When winter arrives, Mammoth Lakes is one of America's leading ski resorts. Boasting more than 3,500 acres of slopes to follow, an elevation of 3,300 meters, and 28 lifts, it's both accessible and impressively set up for different abilities.

An Excellent Hiking Destination

Out of ski season, the Inyo National Forest is a hiker's paradise. You can easily reach highlights like Rainbow Falls or the basalt columns of the Devil's Postpile - the resort's most iconic sight.

A Great Place for Golfers

If you don't fancy hitting the trails, why not hit the links? Mammoth Lakes has a thriving summer golf scene, with leading courses like Snowcreek and Sierra Star offering amazing mountain views.

Although you might think the name of the resort derives from a woolly mammoth found in the area, it actually comes from the Mammoth Mining Company, who bought the first claims in the region in the 1870s.

Top 5 Things to Do in Mammoth Lakes

1. Visit the Devils Postpile

So-called because it looks like a row of massive fence posts, this National Monument is made out of volcanic basalt, formed by eruptions millions of years ago. It's a breathtaking sight.

2. See Rainbow Falls

Right next door to the Devils Postpile, Rainbow Falls are no less stunning. Part of the San Joaquin River, the falls plunge for 31 meters, creatinge a rainbow-lake effect on certain days.

3. Ski at Mammoth Mountain

Mammoth Lakes is full of places to hit the slopes, but Mammoth Mountain is recognized as the best of all. Suitable for skiing, snowboarding, and snowmobile riding, it receives plenty of snow and dependable sunshine.

4. Visit the Mammoth Museum at Hayden's Cabin

Hayden's Cabin was built in the 1920s, and is now a showcase for the area's history and scenery. Find out about gold mining, ecology, and catch regular music performances.

5. Make a Trip to Yosemite

Not far to the north, Yosemite is famed for its massive sequoia trees, dramatic granite cliffs, the 2,400 foot high Yosemite Falls, and majestic peaks like Half Dome - as well as being the home of Yogi Bear.

Useful Information

Choose the Right Season For Your Favorite Activity

Mammoth Lakes is high up in the Sierra Nevada mountains, so the climate up there is very different to coastal California. As a rule, ski season tends to stretch from late November through to May. The summer season takes over in June and you'll find good hiking or golfing conditions into October.

Bear in Mind Seasonal Closures

The changing seasons in Mammoth Lakes mean that some activities and attractions aren't always going to be accessible. For example, the Scenic Gondola which scales Mammoth Mountain shuts down for the winter. Seasonal closures are worth bearing in mind if you're traveling as a family.

Catch Mammoth Lakes' Cultural Highlights

Mammoth Lakes isn't just an outdoor destination, and events take place all the time. There's a Film Festival in late May, a Festival of the Arts and Music around Labor Day weekend, and the Bluesapalooza Music Festival in August.
