Looking for lodging? The Westin Monache is our favorite. They have many amenities and you can walk across the street to dine, shop, or take the gondola to Canyon Lodge.
If Mammoth Mountain is too busy and you want to ride in a place with smaller crowds, drive 30 minutes north to June Mountain.
Continue north on the 395 to visit Mono Lake.
