Where to go Snowboarding
Mammoth Mountain Ski Area
This is the largest resort in the area, and the hub of winter activity in Mammoth Lakes. At 11,053 feet, Mammoth is the tallest ski resort in California. The resort boasts over 3,500 acres of ride-able terrain, and over 150 named trails.
June Mountain is a great place to escape the crowds. For beginner and intermediate riders, June is ideal, as almost half of the mountain is rated intermediate. The resort has 35 named trails, its summit tops out at 10,090 feet, and has a capacity to service 10,000 rides per hour.
The eastern Sierra’s provide a lifetime’s worth of backcountry adventures to suit all skill levels. For quick access to backcountry terrain, consider tackling the Sherwin’s, accessible just off Lake Mary Road. Remember to always check current snow conditions, and pack an avalanche beacon, probe, and shovel.
