My husband and son took lessons here yesterday. The instructor was very nice and they were both able to ski after one lesson. The trails are very well marked and maintained. The lessons & rentals were very reasonably priced.

I rented cross country skis and snow shoes a couple times and took cross country ski lessons here. They always had nice rental gear available and were great at picking out boots and everything to fit me. The lesson was really helpful. The snow shoe tours were both informative and fun. I will definitely go back here.

Always enjoy a day of snow shoeing here which is free if you have your own gear, but they have inexpensive rentals as well. Bring a lunch to picnic and enjoy hiking up to the various lakes and views.

We have stayed in Mammoth every summer for 6 years. If I had one place to stay, it would be here. The location is set down among the pines and right next to Twin Lakes. It's quiet and peaceful with easy access to trails and bike baths. There's a camping ground behind the lodge and a cute general store for... More

It was a beautiful day Tamraz cross-country ski center. We rented skis for my 19-year-old son and myself. There happened to be a race on that day for kids and adults so we didn't have a lesson. The lady at the counter was very helpful I gave us the necessary skills involved. The map they gave us and the trails... More

I had never gone cross country skiing before, and I was looking forward to trying. Tamarack did not disappoint. The staff was very helpful and friendly, and my husband and I enjoyed the trails. I started out using the groomed "tracks" that you just slide your skis through. That really made it easy to learn! Also, we went on a... More
