Whether you have ever skied or not, Rock Creek Lodge has terrain perfect for your ability. With 15 kilometers of groomed cross-country ski trails surrounded by endless touring, telemark, or randonée ski terrain, the beauty of the John Muir Wilderness lies before you. For families looking to avoid the crowds of Mammoth, Rock Creek Lodge is a quiet winter paradise. Never crowded, even on the busiest weekends, it is the perfect place to learn or improve your cross-country skiing, and/or the perfect place to find untracked powder weeks after a storm.

For well over half a century, winter at Rock Creek Lodge has been the local’s secret. A place of intense beauty, vast wilderness, pure solitude, and not to mention, home to some of the driest snow in the Sierra Nevada. With the combination of spectacular terrain, and a fun, relaxed atmosphere, individuals, families, and couples alike are sure to experience the magic that’s been drawing skiers since the pre-eminent Sierra mountaineer Norman Clyde, became the canyon’s first winter resident nearly 80 years ago.
