What weather conditions await you in Mammoth Lakes, California? It is important to monitor the weather and road conditions before heading to the mountains so that you are properly prepared. Knowing the forecast and current temperatures will help you to pack the proper clothing and gear in addition to helping you plan your events and activities while in Mammoth. Remember, it is a completely different climate up here at 8,000 feet!
Also, monitoring the current road conditions will help you decide whether or not you should bring a 4WD vehicle to Mammoth and whether or not to purchase chains. Please keep in mind that from October to June, the weather in the High Sierra can be very unpredictable and we encourage all guests to carry chains in non-4WD vehicles. Purchasing chains in your local area will save you a lot of time and money.
