Travel Tips for Mammoth Lakes

Skiing and/or Snowboarding

by GracesTrips

The Mammoth Ski Resort is appropriately named. There are several lodges spread out at various locations at the base of the mountain. Don't plan to walk to them. A local bus can get you to the other lodges if you can't ski to them. We mostly stayed at Eagle lodge because it had the longest runs. 3 or 4 more chairs can be reached to go to the black diamond and double diamond runs from there. The Main lodge is the busiest and where everyone likes to hang out at. Our first day was such a nice day that the outdoor barbecue was open at Eagle lodge. We enjoyed a tri-tip sandwich for lunch that was pretty good along with a Heineken. Basically, not much waiting on the chair lift. The wide seats can haul up 5-6 people at a time.

Ruby Lake

by goingsolo

Ruby Lake is a great easy dayhike and a beautiful and surprisingly uncrowded destination. From the Mosquito Flats trailhead, it is 2 miles along an easy to follow trail with only minimal elevation gain. Make sure to follow the Mono Pass fork in the trail though, or you'll end up going the wrong way. This is a great spot for a picnic or, to continue hiking, head to one of the nearby lakes. The valley area is largely flat and most hikes are an easy walk from this point.

In the first photo, you can see Ruby Lake from above, as the picture was taken from the summit of Lookout Peak. The second photo was taken from the trailhead less than a mile from the lake.

If you want something more challenging, head away from Ruby Lake and the valley. This is where the real fun begins as the trails end and there is a scramble over a large rock field to get further out to the peaks in the distance. About a mile and a half past Ruby Lake is a great spot by another lake whose name I don't know where glacial runoff forms a small waterfall. We passed a few hikers and a couple of campers en route to Ruby Lake, but, once past the rocks, we saw no one at all.

Convict Lake Restaurant. It's...

by rustreckless

Convict Lake Restaurant. It's about 10 miles out of town (south) with excellent food and 5 star surroundings.
Out of town, away from the crush of people Ahi Tuna grilled in a Pistachio crust. And, while we're at it, the double pork chop with port wine demigloss.

Mammoth Crest

by mtncorg

Mammoth Crest towers over the various lakes that make up the 'Mammoth Lakes'. It is just south of Mammoth Mountain and comprises the side of an old volcano which has collapsed - not unlike the north side of Mt St Helens or the inside of Mt Mazama which holds Crater Lake. The old caldera can easily be appreciated when you are standing atop the Crest, lakes sparkling down inside the old volcano below. the trail can be extended to the idyllic meadows and lakes of Deer Valley. From here, one can loop back to Mammoth Lakes by picking an easy boot path over to Duck Lake and returning down the Mammoth Creek to Lake Mary.

For the Crest, you start at Lake George. This, as are all of the lakes at Mammoth Lakes, is a very popular fishing lake, but Crystal Crag towering above makes it a special place. The trail ascends to the crest and offers wonderful views in all directions.

SKIING & SNOWBOARDING!

by mrjade

Skiing/snowboarding in Mammoth can be as exciting or relaxing as you desire. From equiptment hire to the bus ride home, the whole experience is organised and easy going and the staff are really helpful (they even go round the runs on snowmobiles after the chair lifts close and carry you to safety!) . The slopes are wide, smooth and beautifully pisted every evening. There are a lot of runs designed for snowboarders from learner to pro - they even have night skiing and cool music playing on the exhillarating 'Unbound' run! When visiting at easter the queues are almost non-existant and are all chair lifts or cable cars which make life alot easier. The snow is not ideal at this time of year, but it is still a classy experience. Some of the views are truly spectacular!
