During the summer there is a dirt road off of HWY 2 that you can use (with a forestry permit) to ride your Dual Sport Motorcycle... this road will take you behind and through the ski resort area that provides low speed fun. In addition...More

I don't think so but we are expecting rain this weekend. If you want lots of snow, I would make the drive to mammoth.
