About Mammoth

Mammoth Lakes, CA, is located on the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and is the closest major mountain resort area to the millions of residents of the Los Angeles metropolitan area. This fact, in combination with the area's awesome winter snowpack and numerous summer activities, means that upwards of 2 million visitors descend on the region every year.

The town of Mammoth Lakes began as a mining camp in the late 1870s, but by 1889, no substantial ore deposits had ever been located and the Mammoth Mining Co. shut down. The few remaining residents of Mammoth Camp continued to operate a sawmill, and ranchers from the Owens Valley brought their herds up into the cooler mountain climate during the summer.

However, in the early 1900s, the automobile made it possible for California residents to make a trip to Mammoth to escape the sweltering summer heat of Bishop or Los Angeles, and the resort industry was born. Today, summer visitors number about 1.5 million. They come to hike, camp, fish, ride horses and mountain bikes, and play golf in the cool comfort of the 7,800-foot elevation.

The centerpiece of Mammoth's recreational industry is Mammoth Mountain Ski Area. In 1941, skiers rode a portable towrope powered by a Ford engine up the first slope. Today, Mammoth is a major ski resort with 28 lifts, 150 trails, and a lodging complex connected to the mountain by gondola. The resort also features seven terrain parks, including three half-pipes, for snowboarders.

Mammoth Mountain is known among skiers for its extended spring skiing season, made possible by an average annual snowfall of more than 400 inches. The winter season begins at Thanksgiving and typically lasts until Memorial Day, although skiing at Mammoth on the Fourth of July is a common event.
