Mammoth Mountain & Mammoth Lakes Weather Forecast

Welcome to Mammoth Lakes & Mammoth Mountain Weather Forecast: Hello from Mammoth Lakes, California. Saturday finally brought about 90 minutes of solid rainfall to Mammoth Lakes and the Mammoth Lakes Basin.

The rain helped to clear out all that pollen that has been turning everything yellow in town. The storms have also cleared out the air of a lot of the smoky haze we have had in the area.

Looking at current conditions the temperature is 53 at 8200 feet with a 55 up at the Mammoth Mountain Main lodge.

Winds are at 0 in town and SSW to 15-30 MPH at the top of Mammoth Mountain. Winds will for the most part be light except under any thunder storms that develop over the next week.

Temperatures will be around 78-83 in town today. Night time lows will only be in the mid to upper 50s in the early morning hours. Lows will be near 60 by Wednesday so not much cooling off during the night time hours.

Hike to Lake Barret & Lake TJ | Mammoth Lakes Basin, California

The Hike to Tj and Barret Lakes lies just beneath the Mammoth Crest and Crystal Crag in the Mammoth Lakes Basin at 9,293 feet.

This high mountain hiking trail is a great place for a 3-4 hour session of hiking & exploring, add in lunch on the shore line and some fishing and you can make this a day trip.

This hike takes about 30 – 60 minuets to reach Barret Lake depending on what type of shape you are in. Then it is a easy 10 minutes on to TJ Lake. You should consider this trail to be moderate in difficulty.

You will be gaining about 290 vertical in rise over the first .75 mile’s of the hike in or should we say up to Lake Barret. I have read many online reviews and post’s about this section. For many people this is a challenge, our take is you need to be in basic shape and take it easy.
