Well known as one of the world’s top destinations for spring skiing/riding, Mammoth Mountain will again be open daily through Memorial Day. The mountain enjoyed over 70 inches of snow in March, and with more expected in April, the stage is set for another fantastic spring in the Eastern Sierra.
After suing Mammoth Community Water District for access to water rights on Mammoth Creek, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power is now trying to change the court venue from Mono County to Fresno, according to district manager Greg Norby. A change of venue hearing will be held in Mammoth at the courthouse on April 12. It is open to the public. Below is Norby's letter regarding this issue:
Mammoth Lakes and Owens Valley Community Leaders,
An elderly Coleville man who had left his home for a short hike was found dead in the hills near his home after a several day search.
On the afternoon of Thursday, March 22, Mono County Sheriff’s Dispatch received a call regarding an overdue hiker around the hills of Coleville.
