Mammoth Lakes
Spent the last 5 days up in Mammoth enjoying the 13 feet of snow they have right now. The weather was perfect, sunny and no wind. We stayed at our family house where the snow was so high the kids built a short luge run in the front yard. We took a ranger led snow shoe trek, spent a day down hill skiing, and tried cross country skiing for the first time. I have to say that snow shoeing is still one of my favorite ways to enjoy nature, I recommend it to any one who wants to get some great winter photography.View looking down on McCOY Station, one of the 4 day stations on the mountain. Mammoth has over 3,500 skiable acres and 150 runs. www.mammothmountain.com
