While we would always welcome more snow (and actually, there’s a bit of snow in the forecast
next week….), we’d be lying to say we haven’t been enjoying the longer days and beautiful spring weather as of late.
It’s been a nice mix of the seasons, though. Winter is hanging on with enough snow to ski Mammoth Mountain
through at least Memorial Day weekend, but more summer-time activities like hiking and fishing are here, or will be very soon.
Only three weeks to the regular fishing season opener on April 30th! Almost all of the front country lakes are accessible and ice-free, allowing for early-season stocking and giving anglers plenty of elbow room on opening weekend. Request a fishing map
and brush up on the new regulations
that went into place last year.
Many lower elevation trails are snow-free, waiting to help get you back into hiking
shape. We’re also starting to see the first few wildflowers
And maybe best of all, many roads have started to reopen from their winter closures, including:
- Bodie Road (SR 270) reopened on April 6
- Monitor Pass (SR 89) reopened on April 1
- SR 120 E/Mono Mills Road (to Benton) reopened on March 22
- North June Lake Loop (Highway 158) reopened on March 21
- County Roads: Virginia Lakes Road is open to the lakes, Lundy Lake Road is open to the boat launch (campground opens today!), and Rock Creek Road is expected to open around 4/15
Sonora Pass (SR 108) and Tioga Pass (SR 120 W) are still closed at this time, but work is well underway to clear snow and debris – we hope they’ll be open very soon. Please always check weather and road conditions
before traveling to Mono County.
Take a look below for a few current pictures, and be sure to follow us on Facebook
for more. You can also view webcams around Mono County
, and as always feel free to give us a call at 800-845-7922 to check in before you visit.
Happy Friday – hope to see you soon!
