Mammoth Lakes Forecast
Mammoth Lakes, California is located in the Inyo National Forest in the eastern Sierra Nevada mountain range of central California. Year-round flights are available into Mammoth Yosemite Airport (see Air Service section below). The Town is only a 5-hour drive (325 miles) from Los Angeles and is easily accessible in almost all weather conditions (it’s true...you can get to world-class skiing without any mountain driving)! Please use the detailed information below on the best routes to reach Mammoth Lakes.

Driving from the Los Angeles Area

Drive North on Interstate 5. Depending on where you live, you may take the 405, the 101, the 210 or the 10 to reach Interstate 5. Exit and head North on Highway 14 towards Lancaster, you will pass through the town of Mojave, be sure to continue on CA. 14 after this town, it will be a right turn.

Winter Driving from San Francisco, Central California and the Coast

Winter: Most passes over the Sierra are usually closed November through June except Highways 50 and 80. Highway 88 is another option, which passes south of Tahoe and remains open year-round weather permitting (Use 88 on busy weekends to avoid South Lake Tahoe traffic). If you take 50 and you end up in South Lake Tahoe, use the Kingsbury Grade (Highway 207) to drop down to the 395. Always check the road conditions before traveling by calling 800-GAS-ROAD. If conditions are bad, you may consider heading south to Bakersfield and taking either Highway 58 East to Mojave or Highway 178 through Lake Isabella. Highway 178 can sometimes (although rarely) require chains or 4WD during cold southern storms. Although a long detour mileage-wise, heading South will often get you to Mammoth even faster than the 50 when the roads require chains through Tahoe and on Highway 395. If you do go through Tahoe, take Highways 88, 50 or 80 East to U.S. 395. Take Highway 395 South for approx. 180 miles. Take the Mammoth Lakes exit, Highway 203. Turn right off the offramp towards town. The first signal is Old Mammoth Road, take a left. We are the second building on the right, the fourth driveway. 94 Old Mammoth Road. If you take 58 or 178, follow the directions from Los Angeles after merging onto Highway 395. From Santa Barbara, you'll want to take the 126 to the 5 to the 138 east where you'll pickup 14 and then follow the directions above from Los Angeles. From areas near Bakersfield, you will want to use the 58 towards Mojave or 178 through lake Isabella. Once you merge onto Highway 395 just follow the directions above.

Summer Driving from San Francisco, Central California and the Coast

Summer: Depending on how far North or South you live on the coast, there are many options to travel over the Sierras. Try the Sonora Pass (Highway 108), highly recommended! You can also use Tioga Pass (Highway 120) through Yosemite National Park. Please be aware that you will HAVE TO PAY THE $20 PARK FEE to use this road! A worthwhile investment with spectacular views and the fastest route to Mammoth. Some people take the 4 over Monitor Pass. This route is long and it may be better to just use Highway 88, 108 or 50 unless you are choosing 4 as a scenic route. From Santa Barbara, you'll want to take the 126 to the 5 to the 138 east where you'll pickup 14 and then follow the directions above from Los Angeles. From areas near Bakersfield, you will want to use the 58 towards Mojave or 178 through lake Isabella. Once you merge onto Highway 395 just follow the directions above.
