Mono County Fall Color Report – November 2, 2022




CURRENT FALL COLOR REPORT – November 2, 2022: We woke up to a wonder layer of fresh snow in every community along US 395 this morning! The higher elevations received 6-8″ of new snow with another decent storm forecasted this Saturday through Tuesday. Hwy 120 Tioga Pass, Hwy 108 Sonora Pass, and Hwy 89 Monitor Pass are all still currently closed at this time.

The Good: The recent snow and cold temperatures have allowed for Mammoth Mountain to open early for the season! Main Lodge will open to skiers and riders this Saturday November 5th. June Mountain is still projected to open for the season on December 17th, 2022. The Bridgeport Winter Recreation Area is projected to open December 3rd.

The Bad: The storm has officially pushed every location in Mono County to past peak outside of the West Walker River, and the towns of Walker, Coleville and Topaz. It was a fantastic season with incredible conditions early in the year. The cold temperatures and storms pushed us past peak a little earlier than expected. Bookmark this page and take note of the dates on our images below for planning purposes next year:

The Silver Lining: We were in Antelope Valley this morning and the West Walker River along US 395 is at 100% while the towns of Walker, Coleville and Topaz are all in the 50-100% range. It’s last call for the walker canyon while the big cottonwood trees in the valley are still pretty green and should be good for another 10 days. GO NOW and don’t miss the last opportunity to see fall colors in Mono County!

West Walker River, Walker, Coleville and Topaz (5,200′) – 50-100% (GO NOW!) – Golden along the banks of the West Walker River but still green-ish in the Antelope Valley and the towns of Walker, Coleville and Topaz.
