SINCE 1963, KITTREDGE SPORTS HAS BEEN MAMMOTH'S PREMIER 4-SEASON OUTDOOR RETAILER

SUMMER HOME

In the summer portion of the Kittredge Sports website we have consolidated spring, summer and fall content. This is due to the similarity of the activities during these seasons. Even though many of the outdoor recreational activities are the same, each season in the Eastern Sierra has it's own unmistakable charm.

Springtime weather in Mammoth Lakes brings high temperatures in the 50s to mid-60s and overnight lows in the 20s and 30s, perfect for springtime skiing. In years with heavy spring snowfall, Mammoth Mountain Ski Area stays open until May or June. The Eastern Sierra's spring offers one of the most spectacular settings for landscape and nature photography anywhere. The meadows and hill sides surrounding the area come alive with a kaleidoscope of wildflowers. Spring in the Eastern Sierra offers some of the best wildflower viewing and birding opportunities in the Western U.S.


In the summer, Mammoth Lakes area weather is delightful with daytime highs in the 70s and 80s and nighttime lows in the 40s and 50s from June to September. Summer is a magical time in the mountains as visitors enjoy hiking, biking, climbing, bird watching, boating, fishing, golf, and horseback riding amid the spectacular beauty of this area

Fall is a great time to experience the Mammoth area. You can do many of the same activities of summer, but without the crowds. Often lodging rates are cheaper and the FALL COLORS are magnificent. Mono County mountains and valleys offer vivid displays to rival Vermont in September & October when the leaves change color. Leaves display brilliant and intense colors. Aspens, willows and cottonwoods feature vibrant hues of orange, gold and red signaling the approach of winter. Make sure to keep an eye on the weather forecast. Eastern Sierra fall weather can be very unpredictable and change quickly.

Backpacking

You can backpack from Mammoth to just about anywhere in the Sierras you could possibly want to go. Discover the natural beauty of Yosemite National Park, John Muir and Ansel Adams wilderness areas. Enjoy lush alpine meadows, jagged granite skylines, and clear high country lakes. Permits are required. Pick one up at the Forest Service station in Mammoth Lakes.

Day Hiking

In the summer, the Mammoth area provides easy access for day hikers to interesting geological formations and spectacular Sierra scenery. Notice the hawks swooping, the grouse scuttling, the way the aroma of sage is released when you lightly brush against it. There are a LOT of places to day hike and walk in the Mammoth area.

Kayaking at Lake Mary Mammoth Basin

Kayaking & Canoeing

Paddling in the Eastern Sierras is a very special experience. There is kayaking on high alpine lakes like Rock Creek Lake, on environmentally sensitive lakes like Mono Lake and Lake Tenaya in Yosemite National Park. Rent a canoe, kayak or paddleboard and enjoy an afternoon paddle on Lake Mary, below the impressive Mammoth Crest. All these lakes and many more in the Mammoth Lakes area offer very unique experiences.

Yosemite National Park

Not just a great Valley...but a shrine to human foresight, strength of granite, power of glaciers, the persistence of life, and the tranquility of the High Sierra. Yosemite National Park, one of the first wilderness parks in the United States, is best known for its waterfalls, but within its nearly 1,200 square miles, you can find deep valleys, grand meadows, ancient giant sequoias, a vast wilderness area, and much more.

Bodie State Historic Park

Here you'll see what is left of Bodie. An original Bodie State Historic Park ghost town from the late 1800's, Bodie stands today in a state of "arrested decay". So coined by the State of California when they took over the town in 1962 to make it a State Historic Park.
