The Town of Mammoth Lakes is a small but lively region of only four square miles, filled with a special brand of people who have chosen to leave behind their urban lifestyles and experience the unique attributes of the Eastern Sierra. Mammoth Lakes is a year-round destination resort that offers a plethora of outdoor activities, including skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, and cross country skiing in the winter and fishing, camping, hiking, and mountain biking during the summer.
Some of the Town’s success stories include the following:
• Lake Mary Road Bike Path: What began on Monday, August 27, 2007 as an ambitious $13 million project to construct a 5.2 mile Class 1 bike path to the spectacular Lakes Basin, opened to the public four years later on Friday, August 26, 2011.
• Air Service: In the winter of 2008-09, commercial air service began at Mammoth/Yosemite Airport, bringing new visitors to Mammoth Lakes and making it much easier for existing visitors to get here.
• Accomplished Track Club: The Mammoth Track Club, the top-ranked long-distance running group in America, finished a stellar year in 2011, marked by Morgan Uceny running the fastest 1500m time in the world and including accomplishments that position the club as the premiere professional running group prior to the 2012 Summer Olympics.
