Volcom Brothers Skate Park
Skateboarding is not a crime at one of Mammoth's most popular attraction and activity.
The Volcom Brothers Skate Park is located at Trails End just off of
Meridian Blvd. by the College. Launched in 2005, this is a 50,000
square foot skate park designed by top riders, and sponsored by the
folks at Volcom. Rails, bumps and the infamous cradle, where
a 180 is a common occurrence.
The skate park is has a picnic area along side it and both spectators and participants can be seen daily watching the riders do their amazing jumps, flips and tricks. Mammoth has instituted a must wear helmet ordinance so please do. The park is free, is geared for all levels, however please observe the posted guidelines so that the park can stay free of incident and accident.
Shady Rest Skate parkA smaller more beginner skate area is located in Shady Rest Park.
The concrete, steel and asphalt structure was built in the summer
of 1999 and boasts a variety of hits and obstacles. It is geared for those looking to build confidence before they tackle the Volcom Skate Park. The Shady Rest
Skateboard Park is open daily from dawn to dusk, weather permitting.
Safety gear is required including helmets, elbow and kneepads and wrist guards. Failure to wear the proper safety gear may result in a citation from the Mammoth Lakes Police Department. Have fun, but skate at you own risk.
Skateboarding? What's skateboarding got to do with the Eastern Sierra??? Well for starters, how about miles of gently sloping downhills with fresh pavement and no cars in sight for days.
