Fishing Season: It’s been a great season of fishing here in the Eastern Sierra out of Mammoth Lakes. For the most current fishing conditions check the Trout Fly’s report here.

If you can, hire a guide to take you out on Crowley Lake, it’s one of the best fishing experience I have ever had. For more information about fishing check out the fishing section of the web site here

Mountain Biking: The Mammoth Mountain Bike Park is open with most of the trails in the park now open. For our complete update please use this link to the Mountain Bike Report.

Hiking: The Mammoth Lakes Basin trails are in prime shape now for a day hike. With the warmth of Summer on, hiking in the Lakes Basin is much cooler than the lower elevation trails.

Road Biking: Try a ride from Mammoth to June and back for a nice long road ride. Parking at the Green Church 5 mins out of Mammoth and riding out to Benton and back is also a great ride right now as well. Down in the Owens Valley, the mornings up to about 10 AM are perfect for a ride. 

Take a walk on the Mammoth Lakes Paved Trail System. These trails spread all over town and are paved for easy walking or biking. Start out at the park on Old Mammoth Road. 

Scenic Drives:  Take a drive up to June Lake and drive around the loop. When you hit the town of June Lake try outJune Pie for the best Pizza in the Eastern Sierra. When we do the lop we also do the drive north about 10 mins of 395 to the Mono Lake Visitors Center. 

June Lake Beach: This is the best beach in the Eastern Sierra with tons of sand and good bathrooms close to the parking area. Best to go early for calm conditions as the wind blows in your face out of the SW each day afternoon. There are SUP rentals on the beach most days of the week during the Summer months. 

Horseshoe Lake Beach in the Mammoth Lakes Basin offers up a nice beach. This year the lake is full so it’s a short walk to the water. The elevation is at 9000 feet so beware the water is a bit cool and the air temperature is in the upper 60s. Bring a SUP and paddle around the Lake without all the traffic on Lake Mary. 

Gondola Rides: Nothing like a ride to the top if you’re not skiing or riding. You can get out at MC Coy and at the top and walk around.   There will be snow at the top well into July, head up for a snowball fight if your not skiing or boarding. 

Web Site News…. created the staging to start the build on MammothSnowman.com Version 3.0. Of course, it will be mobile responsive and look great on all those devices. For those that still love their desktop, that version will blow your mind. Snowman out.
