Sharing the trails and enjoying the wide variety of winter recreation opportunities in the Mammoth Lakes region requires cooperation and an understanding of each other's unique experiences and concerns.

Mammoth Lakes Recreation will be looking for input from all user groups regarding best practices for winter recreation etiquette as part of a process of collecting information that can then be made available to both locals and visitors alike. Come help cultivate a diverse and respectful culture for shared trail and land use.
