Cross Country Skiing in Mammoth

xc skiingWhile Mammoth is renowned for its world-class downhill skiing, our cross country ski trail system is among the best in the West. The trails are groomed by the town and are free to use. You can venture out on your own on the Inyo National Forest's winter trail system. The surrounding mountains, forests and meadows offer excellent ski touring and telemark terrain.

There is an extensive Blue Diamond Trail system which mark the route for cross country skiers through tall Jeffrey Pine Forests and to fascinating geologic attractions like the Inyo Craters, Obsidian Dome, and Hot Creek site.

Orange Diamond Trails mark the corresponding routes explicitly for snowmobiling. You won't have to go far to find magnificent vistas of the High Sierra. Popular are the trails around Lookout Mountain because of these breathtaking landscapes.

Tamarack XC Ski Center

The Tamarack Lodge Cross Country Ski Center is a part of the Mammoth Mountain Ski Resort and quite possibly the jewel of Mammoth Lakes, California. Tamarack Cross Country Ski Center is located at Twin Lakes in the Mammoth Lakes Basin off Lake Mary Road, grooms 45 kilometers of track and skating lanes and provides lessons and rentals.

Please observe the Ski Trail Regulations and if you are a weekend warrior, please follow these simple rules. The Mammoth Visitor Center and Ranger Station located at the entrance to town on State Highway 203 offers free winter trail maps and information on guide services, special events, current trail conditions and regulations.
