Cross Country & Nordic Skiing

There is no better way to get away from it all, to reset your perspective, than to glide on cross country skis into the serene winter wonderland that surrounds the town of Mammoth Lakes. Feel the crisp mountain air in your lungs, take in majestic views of ice-covered lakes and snow-clad peaks, immerse yourself in the deep, timeless silence of the forest. 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.
