“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Had a great time going cross-country skiing with my kids during our last stay. The gear seemed really new and clean, and the scenery couldn't be beat. Makes me wonder why we don't all live in Mammoth!

“Great snow shoeing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

Such a fun area to snowshoe, beautiful tall trees and endless trails. Next winter I want to try cross county skiing, it looked like a lot of fun.

So amazing - great place to hike, snowshoe, cross country. Adults and kids can all enjoy. Little lodge and restaurant delish!

“Miles of groomed mountain trails.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

Drive through the town of Mammoth Lakes and follow the Lake Mary road to miles of groomed tracks amid the red firs and lodgepole pines. There is a relatively small amount of level track, near Tamarack Lodge, good for a warm up or beginner, or acclimating to the altitude. A good climb up the road to Lake Mary brings one to a plethora of trails and views. The small shop rents skis and has lessons. Budget concious skiers can try the free groomed trails in town, by the Welcome Center, or head out on the Scenic Loop, or discover the many other great sections of national forest land nearby.

“A gorgeous place to ski”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

They have many trails to choose from, beginners to advanced. They are not as well marked as they could be, but trail maps are provided. It is expensive to get a trail pass, $27 per day per person and the x-country ski rental costs another $27 per person. The rental shop is very nice and the gear is excellent and the woman who helped us was very helpful.
