A haven for lovers of the great outdoors, the resort town of Mammoth Lakes is bordered all around by vast acres of national forestland and wilderness areas. In the vicinity are the Inyo National Forest, the Ansel Adams Wilderness Area and the John Muir Wilderness Area. All this breathtaking, mostly untouched space offers an abundance of recreational options throughout all four seasons and ensures the almost constant booking of rooms in many a Mammoth Lakes hotel.
Mammoth Mountain, which rises above town, is perhaps the region’s biggest attraction. In the winter months, powderhounds fill Mammoth Lakes hotels as they flock to enjoy the more than 400 inches of snowfall at one of the biggest winter resorts in the country. The ski area, whose base elevation is almost 8,000 ft. and whose summit exceeds 11,000 ft., remains white far longer than most other resorts. Skiers have been known to ply its trails for periods longer than six months.
For those looking for a Mammoth Lakes hotel or Mammoth Creek lodge that offers a full menu of luxury amenities, but maintains a more personal feel, there is no place more ideal than the Mammoth Lakes Inn. A veritable Mammoth Lakes institution, the Inn has been welcoming guests for decades and has recently been upgraded to ensure that visitors enjoy only the best during their stay. Future plans for the Inn include a gourmet restaurant and a full-service spa – so guests can look forward to an even better Mammoth Lakes hotel, restaurant and spa experience soon to come.
