Ideas of Things to Do in Mammoth & the Eastern Sierra at this time.
Mammoth Mountain Scenic Gondola Rides Taking a ride to the top of Mammoth Mountain is an amazing experience. The views are breathtaking as you ride up and beyond compare once you’re standing at the top. Here is the link to learn more.
Mountain Biking Once the snow sets in over the high country the lower elevations are the place to ride. Lower Rock Creek and several areas out of Bishop will keep you busy riding on all winter if you like. Here is the link to more information on Mountain Biking year-round.
Fall Colors Bishop and the Round Valley have a mix of peaking and past peak colors right now. The colors show this year at the lower elevations has been just amazing.
Walk the Mammoth Lakes Paved Trails Over the years my kids and I have put in miles and miles on these paths. The paved paths have great views and also take you thru the forest and the Mammoth Meadow.
Mill Pond Park & Disc Golf A great place to hang out below the snowline. There is a full 18 hole disc golf course to keep you busy for hours. Got Kids? The park has a playground for energy output. Here is a link to the disc golf course map.
Snowshoe to Lake Mary When the road is closed you can snowshoe up into the lakes basin. Right now the Cross Country Skiing is closed so you have the road to yourself. Go mid-day when the snow has loosened up. You can rent snowshoes at a discount from Black Tie Ski Rental, use this link.
Hiking Here are some ideas of great places to get out and hike right now. Lower Rock Creek Trail, Convict Lake Trail, Sherwin Lakes Trail, Inyo Craters, Hot Creek Geological Site. The only place you will find snow is in the upper sections of the Sherwin Lakes Trail.

Author – 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.
