Spring Conditions and Parks & Facilities Use

  • The historic and record-setting winter snowfall has and will continue to impact the opening and safe use of our many parks, playgrounds, trails and facilities.
  • Staff constantly evaluate conditions throughout the parks system and will update their status on the Town website along with the Mammoth Parks n Rec Facebook and Instagram accounts.
  • More detailed status reports will be provided to the public on the 1st and 15th of every month, unless conditions change rapidly.
  • As always, please call the Parks and Recreation team at (760) 965-3690 for any questions or additional information about park and facility openings.

Spring Snowmelt Preparation

  • The sierra snowpack remains at historic levels, due to relatively cool temperatures through mid-April. According to the National Weather Service, it is still 300-400% of normal for mid-April. Gradual melting has begun at low to mid elevations the last couple weeks.
  • The short-range forecast (next 1-2 week) is for warmer temperatures with no significant precipitation events through the end of April. There is, however, a high risk of at least minor to moderate flooding from May through July for Eastern Sierra creeks and streams.
  • Sandbags are available for property use from the Cinder Shed at the Town Yard – 299 Commerce Drive.

Please Recreate Responsibly Around Waterways!

High water flows are expected in various locations throughout Inyo County this spring and summer. LADWP has placed signs advising the public of high flows in the Owens River. We recommend enjoying calmer waterways at locations such as the city of Bishop’ swimming pool, Diaz Lake, Klondike Lake, and Mill Pond.

Safety tips for you and your family: 

  • Read and follow warning signs – these signs are there for your safety!
  • Keep a safe distance from rivers and stream banks – extreme erosion can compromise rivers and stream banks.
  • Stay on established trails or developed areas.
  • Please keep children close and dogs leashed while near moving water.
  • Avoid slippery rocks and logs.
  • Never enter waterways that are upstream from a waterfall.
  • Stay up to date on local conditions by visiting the LADWP website.

Sierra Classic Theatre Presents “Good People” by David Lindsay-Abaire at the Edison Theatre

  • Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo, where this months paycheck covers last months bills, and where Margie Walsh has just been let go from yet another crappy job. Facing eviction and scrambling to catch a break, Margie thinks an old fling whose made it out of Southie might be her ticket to a fresh new start. But is this apparently self-made man secure enough to face his humble beginnings? Margie is about to risk what little she has left to find out. With his signature humorous glow, Lindsay-Abaire explores the struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakeable hopes that come with having next to nothing in America.
  • “Good People” will run from April 27 – May 7, 2023 at the Edison Theatre.
  • Purchase tickets online.
