Additional Camp Information:

Do I need to stay in BISHOP OR MAMMOTH?

No. You can stay in any of the surrounding towns/cities. If you would like a city with more lodging options look at Mammoth Lakes, CA but keep in mind it is about a 40-45 minute commute to camp and back daily, when we operate out of Bishop. Camping is also a great option for this area.

Feel free to contact us for further recommendations if needed.

What weather should I expect? 

We ride all winter and summer out of Bishop. Bishop gets high temperatures in the summer and 5 inches of rain and 8 inches of snow, on average, per year. April and May shold have milder temps. April on average is 68-76F daily and May is 76-84F. The Fall October and November camp should have comfortable riding weather with chilly mornings and warm afternoons. Layering appropriately will be key for all camps. Find more details on our WEATHER POLICY here.
