What's The Weather going to be like when I am in Mammoth?  Really we get this question a lot. 
In summer, temperatures average 75-80 degrees for a high and seldom dips below 40 for a low. Winter temperatures average 30-40 degrees for a high and 10-20 degrees for a low with mostly sunny skies. Based on figures compiled for more than 20 years, snowfall at Mammoth Mountain Ski Area averages 33 feet or 400 inches (10 meters) per year.  When ever you visit higher elevations like Mammoth come prepared for a range of temperatures and weather.  Regular visitors to the High Sierra like to say "if you want to know what the weather is going to be like wait 5 minutes it will change." Weather is part of the adventure whenever you are in the High Sierra and part of the reason people come back year after year.

The elevation of Mammoth Mountain is 11,053 feet and the Town of Mammoth Lakes sits at an altitude of 7,800 - 8,000 feet.  The surrounding mountains rise to elevations exceeding 12,000 feet.
