Over-Snow Vehicle Use & Groomed Winter Trails

Travel Managment- Subpart C

The Inyo National Forest is starting to develop a proposed action for the designation of over snow vehicle (OSV) use, in order to comply with Subpart C (use by over-snow vehicles) of the Forest Service's Travel Management Rule.

The intent of this effort is to designate National Forest System roads, trails, and areas that are open to OSV use, as well as identify snow trails available for grooming. MORE



The Fun doesn’t Stop in Winter

Inyo National Forest is the home of Mammoth Mountain and June Lake Ski Areas. Mammoth is one of the largest ski resorts in the country, with 150 named trails, and over 5 square miles of terrain. 

Tamarack Lodge Nordic Center and Mammoth Nordic groom over 40 kilometers of trails and skating lane. Try the ungroomed blue diamond trails to really get away from it all.

For snowmobilers, the Forest Service maintains 100 miles of groomed trails leading to thousands of acres of un-groomed snowmobile play areas.
