Snow-vember: Big Snow on the Way!


Photo by Patrick Griley with Mammoth Lakes Tourism 11.3.22
As soon as the calendar flipped to November, temperatures dropped and the first good storm of the season rolled into Mono County.Mammoth Mountain Ski Area picked up 11-16″ of snow and, with another significant storm (2-4 FEET?) in the forecast, announced they will be opening early tomorrow, November 5th.

Winter is off to a great start, and the timing couldn’t be better. Fantastic weather lasted through the spectacular fall color season, and now as the snowpack builds, so does our excitement for all the fun winter activities we have in store. Projected opening dates for many have been set – see those here.

Of course, with snow comes seasonal road closures. All three mountain passes (120 Tioga, 108 Sonora, 89 Monitor), 158 N (North June Lake Loop), 120 E (Mono Mills to Benton), and 270 (Bodie Road) are currently closed. Be sure to check weather and road conditions before traveling, and take a look at current conditions on local webcams, too.

As always, give us a call at 800-845-7922 if we can help with questions or your next visit.

Happy Snow-vember!
Liz, Jeff and Amanda


Help Save Bodie


California State Parks staff have identified two emergency stabilization projects that are in dire need of help funding. State Parks has no money to save these buildings, so the Bodie Foundation is working to raise the necessary funds to keep the beloved Methodist church and the Fouke Residence standing.

Please spread the word and donate if you can. Read more about the project and find links to donate here.


Changing Seasons


As fall turns to winter in Mono County, the fishing seasons are also changing. The regular fishing season ends soon on November 15th, but several bodies of water remain open for catch-and-release (with barbless artificial flies and lures only).

New to winter fishing? Go with a guide! You might be surprised – it could be your new favorite season.


Please always check Weather & Road Conditions before traveling to Mono County.

We all have the great responsibility to care for the Eastern Sierra – please be sure to bring your Mountain Manners.
