Winter has blown in full force, dumping 24 inches in the last 24 hours at Mammoth Mountain. Cozy inside next to our pellet stove, staff at ESLT have been busy brainstorming ways to get outside in 2010 – just not today. Coming up soon, in February, is our first ever Winter Full Moon Ski Tour! Check out our Events Page for more information, and visit Big Hot Springs Ranch on the web to get a taste of where we’ll be headed. With all this snow – it should be good.

Then, in March, join us as we explore a local wildlife migration corridor, where ESLT has worked hard to provide safe passage and critical habitat for Sierra wildlife. One of our important partners, California Department of Fish and Game Mono County Wildlife Biologist, Tim Taylor, will share his knowledge and research. Want to know more, visit our Events Page! Meanwhile, enjoy the weather, stay safe and dry, and dream of blue bird days.
