Due to heavy winter snowfall, roads accessing the Mammoth Lakes Basin are projected to open later than normal this year. The US Forest Service and Town of Mammoth Lakes will be working cooperatively to provide vehicle access to the Lakes Basin and open recreation facilities as quickly as possible, with a targeted opening date of May 25th, prior to the Memorial Day weekend.

Further assessments on snow conditions and facility repair needs will be made beginning May 10th and a more detailed opening schedule will be developed.

Until road plowing begins, the Mammoth Lakes Basin is open to winter recreational use. When enjoying the Lakes Basin using a snowmobile, please remember to travel at a safe and controllable speed and be respectful of non-motorized users. Many hazards exist and riding near buildings or structures is not recommended. The area of the Lakes Basin open to snowmobile use is limited and users should be aware of posted closures.

For more information, please call the Mammoth Lakes Welcome Center at (760) 924-5500 or visit the Welcome Center at 2510 Hwy 203 next to the Mammoth Ranger Station.

I have a feeling many roads and hiking trails will be delayed this year. How long was everything delayed for last year? Weeks or months?
