Mammoth got its name from the mining company that mined it. Temps at the top were a windy 68 degrees when we where there . A few of us (the daring) biked off the summit and the winds were strong but the air wasn't really chilly. At the town it was around 80 degrees. We did not spot any skiers but the Gondola people told us with our day Gondi pass we could ride up ride down and go as we pleased with or with out our bikes. The snow on the Summit was still Quite firm, early morning temps at our lodge were high 50's.
