    Spyder Where's the Party Lift & Lodging Package

    We asked our contestants to tell us what their ideal party would look like if they had the opportunity to partner with Spyder, Carlsberg, and Audi to create their dream event. Well, Mark had some great ideas and now he's working with us to design the party of his dreams - and he wants you to come along for te ride, too! Join us for a free concert at Mammoth Mountain on Saturday April 26th, 2014. This is not a Spring Party that you want to miss. Where's The Party? It's at Mammoth Mountain.

Summer Adventures

On foot or by boat, explore

Tamarack is a resort where all abilities of outdoor-lovers fit in. No survivor-man skills required. Here, summer and fall are characterized by the kind of colorful deep-water reflections that show off all the hillside hues, natural sights, forest sounds and blue sky peacefulness to the few lucky souls kicking back on the lakeshore. We are located in the heart of the Mammoth Lakes Basin, the scenic valley of alpine lakes and waterfalls where Twin Lakes and several nearby sister lakes rest at the foot of steep granite crags.


  • Poles and boat rentals at your service
  • Fishing licenses available in The Village at McCoy Sports (required for ages 16 and over)
  • Stocked by the Department of Fish and Game and weekly with Alpers "monster" rainbows in peak summer months
  • Great for kids (young anglers-in-the-making) - gentle waters, footbridges and accessible shores
  • Fishing season: last weekend in April through Nov. 15 every year
  • Remember, this is bear country; properly store away all food and fish

From Twin Lakes

  • Panorama Dome: easy, scenic half-mile hike across the dome for expansive view of Mammoth; trailhead is on Lake Mary Road 100 yards past the turnoff to Tamarack Lodge.
  • Twin Lakes to Mammoth Mountain: 3 miles uphill; climb 2,500 feet in elevation for the rare opportunity to summit Mammoth from the backside; trailhead is over the bridge and at the far end of the campground loop road.

From Coldwater Campground

  • Mammoth Consolidated Mine and Heart Lake: find the mining company buildings less than a quarter mile from the upper parking area; continue a mile past them to Heart Lake.
  • Emerald Lake and Sky Meadows: gentle three-quarter mile trail to Emerald Lake and two miles to wildflower-rich Sky Meadows; trailhead starts from the campground's upper parking area
  • Duck Pass: get your heart pumping on this five-mile uphill switchback to the deepest-blue lake you've ever seen; pass Arrowhead, Skelton and Barney Lakes on the way; there are more lakes and meet-up with the John Muir/Pacific Crest Trail for endless exploring; trailhead starts from the campground's upper parking area.

From Lake George

  • TJ and Barrett Lakes: short and sweet moderate hike is half mile to Barrett Lake and three-quarter mile to TJ; trailhead from Lake George parking area.
  • Crystal Lake and Mammoth Crest: climb high for great views of the Lakes Basin; 1.5 miles to the lake and three to the crest; trailhead from Lake George parking area.

From Horseshoe Lake

  • Horseshoe Lake Loop Trail: a mellow one-mile loop around the lake; mountain bikes ok
  • McLeod Lake: great with kids and dogs because it's short (half-mile) with gradual uphill and a great ending at a lovely lakeside picnic beach; these catch-and-release waters are swimming with cutthroat trout.
  • Crater Meadows and Red Cones: trail continues beyond McLeod Lake to provide a 3.5 mile tour of the backside of Mammoth Crest.
