UPDATE 01/29/2020. We have some lake ice. Crowley is good to skate on but be very cautious! Check below.
Located in Mammoth Lakes, California, the Mammoth Ice Rink is the highest outdoor rink west of the Rockies. The rink sits at 7986' above sea level and is the only outdoor hockey rink in California. The rink offers stick time, pick up hockey, the MHL (beer league) and is home to the Mammoth Stars Youth Hockey Team
CURRENT CONDITIONS: 1/29/2020 Crowley Lake is 2.5 - 3 inches in spots. This lake is big and water levels fluctuate with incoming water from the Owens River/Grant Lake and going out to LA. It is not for everyone. Please take precautions and bring ice picks, rope, and even a life vest.
The typical back country ice starts early November and can last a few days to a few weeks. You have heard the term earn your turns when it comes to skiing but this is about earning your ice time. Nothing like the crisp mountain air, beautiful surroundings, and the sound of skates slicing through the clearest ice you will ever skate on. This is hockey in the Sierra.
