Cross Country / Nordic Skiing

Cross country skiing is both easy and accessible - not complicated, not a lot of gear required - just good, healthy fun! Between the Tamarack Cross Country Ski Center and the public Mammoth Lakes Nordic Trail System, there are miles of trails and skating lanes for Nordic skiers. The Inyo National Forest has a wide winter trail system integrated into the surrounding mountains, forests and meadows. Ideal terrain for ski touring and telemark skiing is marked by blue diamonds. Some popular destinations include Inyo Craters, Obsidian Dome and Hot Creek.
