A Message from The Town of Mammoth Lakes about the Recent Storm
U.S. HWY 395 CLOSED
Due to blizzard conditions and avalanche concerns in the Eastern Sierra, Caltrans has closed U.S. Highway 395 in Mono County between Gorge Road, about 12 miles north of Bishop, and Eastside Lane in Walker, a stretch of more than 100 miles. Maintenance crews are working to reopen the highway, when conditions permit. View the Quickmap site for updates.
MMSA OPERATIONS UPDATE

PLEASE STAY OFF THE ROADS
Be snowsmart in Mammoth Lakes by following a few simple winter safety tips. During heavy snowfall, please stay off the roads to let our snow removal operators clear the roads and sidewalks. Don’t put on chains when you have to – put on chains before you need them. Stopping in roadways is dangerous and is to be avoided. We recommend you park your vehicle (off the roadway and behind the orange snow stakes) and take the bus.
KEEP YOUR HEAD UP and WATCH FOR FALLING SNOW AND ICE!
With the large accumulations of snow this season, roofs will shed snow and ice, especially metal roofs. Be extra careful where you walk and where children play, especially at all exits and entries.
A WINTER STORM WARNING IS NOW IN EFFECT UNTIL 1 AM TUESDAY.
The forecast is for blowing snow and low visibilities for the Sierra with winds gusting as high as 50 mph, with Sierra ridges gusting as high as 100 mph. Another round of heavy snow with high snow rates for the Sierra this evening into Monday morning. Major travel disruptions continue. For Monday and Monday night, an additional 8-16 inches west of Highway 395, with 4-8″ possible along and east of US-395.
