Mammoth dominates the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in central California. It’s quite remote compared to other resorts and a long way from any international airports. The small airport at Mammoth Lakes is undergoing an environmental impact review. Pending approval, Mammoth will have some commercial air service flying into the area by the 2007/8 season. In the meantime the nearest international airports are Reno and Los Angeles. Reno is 170 miles (274 km) from Mammoth and takes three hours by car along the scenic Highway 395. Two taxi companies offer transfers: Mammoth Shuttle and the Sierra Express. Los Angeles Airport is 323 miles (524 km) from Mammoth and takes five hours by car. There are no rail connections.
