Private Jet to Mammoth Lakes
About Mammoth Lakes
Formed by volcanic eruptions tens of thousands of years ago, the area of Mammoth Mountain called Mammoth Lakes (or just “Mammoth”) was first settled by the indigenous people group known as the Mono. Prospectors staked a claim in the 1870s, and Mammoth City was born as a mining camp for gold rush treasure-seekers. The original town’s economy centered on logging and tourism once the gold rush ended and today Mammoth Lakes is a bustling small town that is popular for outdoor tourism. Climate in the summer is warm, similar to the Mediterranean, while winter is often long and snowy. Start your trip to Mammoth Lakes on a private jet with Latitude 33 Aviation.
