The award-winning Welcome Center is the first step to making the most out of your visit to Mammoth Lakes.

Beyond the thoughtfully stocked books, maps and gift shop, the center offers free interpretive walks and talks. Access to trails for cross-country skiing in winter and biking in summer is just outside the front door!
