Mammoth Lakes is surrounded by seemingly endless acres of public lands, and a number of roads which are transformed into trails for the winter so it's easy to get out and explore on via skis or snowshoes.Bring your own skis or rent to explore over 140 miles (225 km) of cross country track that winds throughout Mammoth Lakes and into the expanse of the Inyo National Forest.
