    Any Mammoth Riding?

    I know the Nationals were changed due to snow, but does anyone know if there are any trails open for the weekend of the 4th?

    some

    Lower rock creek is open (and my favorite trail in the area) uptown, downtown and shotgun (second favorite area trail) are open I'm sure but the mountain itself still has a ton of snow on it.

    Lower trails only

    I just got back from Mammoth. The trails are fairly limited right now, mostly the stuff going into Canyon Area, like Paper Route, Shotgun, Big Ring, Uptown and Downtown.

    There is a lot of snow up above, so I'd be surprised if they were able to open it for awhile.

    I ride on the mountain about every day and the snow is melting fast. Really been warm lately. You will have plenty of riding available next week.

    Thanks guys, appreciate the update. I rode up there for the first time last year and had a blast, can't wait to try it again.

    Mammothman, would you mind keeping us posted on when the the upper trails are open like skidmarks and the backside. I am hoping to do a trip by mid to late july and hopefully the upper trails will be open then.

    I second that...

    Mammothman, I'd really appriciate updates too. My parents live in Chalfant, so I heard about the heat and how fast the snow is melting. Hopefully by the end of July, when my trip with my wife, and sister is planned the whole mountain will be open.

    we are going on the July 8th weekend. i know the top will not be open, but i hope most of the lower will be. most of the technical stuff that i like is lower mountian anyway. i'll miss the top though. lets go 100 degress in bishop everyday until then!
