Community Snow Observations
| The Community Snow Observations (CSO) project gathers information about snow in data-sparse mountain areas by engaging backcountry travelers to measure snow depth and submit those observations in the Mountain Hub app. Snow depth observations go into the CSO database and help snow scientists understand how snow is distributed, which allows them to develop better snow and hydrology products that help you. Check out the publicly available ‘Snow Data’ web app.|
| Read the CSO Holiday Newsletter to learn more about the project, it's funding through NASA and Mammut's donation of the Mountain Hub app to CSO.|
Grooming Underway on the Inyo
| The recent snowfall at the end of January brought the minimum required depth for the Inyo National Forest to begin grooming the winter recreation trails. Mammoth Lakes Trail System quickly followed and has been grooming the Shady Rest trails. |
| Whether you want to snowmobile, snowshoe, cross-country ski, walk, fat-bike, run with fido on-leash - the trails are ready. Read more to learn what activities you can do and where.|
Water Returns to DeChambeau Ponds
| Over the last three months, the Inyo National Forest, along with partners and volunteers, have successfully returned hot water to the DeChambeau Ponds by installing nearly 2000 feet of CPVC pipe. These wetlands are critical to numerous migratory birds and to the biodiversity of Mono Basin plants and animals.|
