Family Fun & Snowplay

Family vacations in Mammoth Lakes are as much fun for parents as they are for kids. There are boundless recreational and educational opportunities that involve exploring the outdoors. Go snow sledding, build a snowman, make snow angels, or go cross country skiing or snowshoeing. For indoor fun you can go see a movie, have an indoor picnic, make some popcorn and watch movies or visit Color Me Mine Paint Studio and make your own souvenir to take home.

Snow Sledding

Bundle up and make sure everybody`s cozy warm and comfortable, that way your day of fun will be more enjoyable. Find a good hill, make sure it is not too steep for sledding and that there are no large rocks, tree roots or debris hidden under the snow. You can buy sleds at Do-it-Center, Rite Aid, Vons and a few sporting good stores in town. Some suggestions on where to go: Rock Creek Road is approximately 15 minutes south of Mammoth Lakes and is plowed all the way to East Fork Snopark where there is a variety of areas where you can snow play and sled. There is also a large hill approximately 15 minutes north of Mammoth Lakes on Hwy 395 on the southbound side where the divided highway ends, just before Deadman Summit and anywhere on the Scenic Loop Road as long as you are not parked on or sledding on the road.

Tube Park and Snow Play

Take the family out for tubing and sledding at Woolly`s Adventure Summit, located on Minaret Road , on your way up to the Main Lodge Ski Area on the right side. There is tubing fun and a snowplay area. Call for more information on Woolly`s Adventure Summit.
