Mammoth Nordic Trail System

Snow Sports Area
Maggie, Barbara, Phyllis and Jim out for a nice Classic ski! – Brian Knox

Mammoth Nordic Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit organization, was founded in 2002 by people who could not imagine a winter resort town the caliber of Mammoth Lakes without a free Community Nordic Trail System. We recognize that making our town a better place to live is the simplest way to make it a better place to visit!

Our members and supporters from both in town and elsewhere appreciate our contribution and we take great pride in the work we do!

Our Mission is to support, develop and promote Nordic Recreation.We are dedicated to providing our locals and visitors alike with superb, groomed track skiing, snowshoeing, and other winter recreation opportunities.
