Fire restrictions are now in place by the USFS and the Town of Mammoth Lakes has issued fire restrictions.
That means NO Campfires, Smoking, or BBQs anywhere in the forest except an established campground with an on-site host. You still need a fire permit to use a stove so be prepared to get fined if you do not have one.
Mountain Biking Season: The Mammoth Mountain Bike Park is now open with 13 lower mountain runs going and the shuttle service running out of the Village.
If your looking for a ride up the bike shuttle from the village to Main Lodge is the only access you have this week. This Friday they plan to add chair 16 and chair 11 for trail access. Then the following weekend Gondola 1 will be open for access for trails out of Mc Coy Station.

Steve Taylor – The Mammoth Snowman – Over the last 30+ years, Snowman has spent countless hours studying and learning about Mammoth Mountain Weather and Snow Conditions first hand. He has been skiing around the hill with marked ski poles since March of 1991 so he can measure the fresh snowfall amounts out on the hill.
Snowman started blogging this information back in 1990 on the old Mammoth BBS system, then the RSN Forums and then on to MammothSnowman.com in 2004 with Video & Photo Blog report. (No YouTube back then). Facebook got added to the fold back in 2008 and then the Facebook Group in 2016.
Reports, videos, and photos from the website have been featured on both local TV Stations here in Mammoth, along with AP, Fox, ABC, CBS, and NBC News.
