Mammoth Mountain View

Monday @ 6:03 AM – Hello and thanks for stopping by MammothSnowman.com.

This week you can expect a continuation of the warm spring days with lots of outdoor activities to take part in up here in the Eastern Sierra.

The skiing and riding should be great spring conditions with firm laps at 7:30 AM followed by the soft corn snow mid-morning. Wax’ em up so you glide and don’t bog down.

The snow line in the Eastern Sierra is now all over the place, with snow in the area of shade and no direct snow at about 8300-8500 feet.

If you’re coming up you will want to make it a dual sports time, hit the snow at your perfect time for several hours, and then take in a scenic drive later in the day.

Should be a great time, enjoy it if you’re able to be in the area this week. Have a great week where ever you are and make your plans to get some relaxation time here in the Eastern Sierra.

East Side Mountain Biking: The riding down in Bishop is just fantastic early in the mornings. By mid-morning, the high country warms up for some great riding below the 8200-foot level.

Try a mid-day ride out of Shady Rest all the way out to Bald Mountain and back. The air is clear and daytime highs are perfect during the late spring.

To learn more about where to ride right now check out the East Side Mountain Bike Report Page.

Recreation Report – What to Do: It’s a great time to visit Mammoth Mountain and the Eastern Sierra. The lower elevations are melted out now with snowline around the 8500 feet mark and above in spots with direct sun.

Hikers will find some good trails have melted out and are already open. Sherwin Lakes Trail, and Lower Rock Creek, are just a couple of places to head.

Camping and Fishing seasons have all started, with many campgrounds below the 8500-foot level now open. Most of the roads in the area are also open for a great scenic drive.

Check out our Recreation Report for what to do and to find out what is open in the Inyo Forest and what is not, here is the link to the full report.
