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 34 lifts, two gondolas, 150 named trails, and over 5 square miles of terrain. 

In the Mammoth Lakes Basin area, the Tamarack Lodge Nordic Center and Mammoth Nordic groom over 24 miles of trails and a skating lane. Try the 7-mile ungroomed Blue Diamond Nordic Routes to really get away from it all! These ski and snowshoe routes were established by the U.S. Forest Service in the early 1980s and have been maintained by the Range of Light Group, Sierra Club, in partnership with the US Forest Service.

For more adventurous skiers and snowboarders, there are thousands of acres of backcountry in the Eastern Sierra.
