If you somehow manage to leave necessary outdoor or sportswear for your ski trip or hike at home, do not fret—Mammoth can match the fattest wallet with its dozens of athletic apparel and accessories stores.

For outdoor clothes, Footloose and Wilderness Outfitters are probably your best bets.  For ski or snowboard rental or purchase, the visitor is bombarded with choices: DFI Snowboards , Fast Ski, Ski Renter , Wave Rave Snowboard Shop , etc.  Ski and Snowboard Valet is particularly accommodating, specializing in personal outfitting, delivery, and hotel room service.

For fisherpeople, Performance Anglers has an extensive supply of fly-fishing necessities, and the Troutfitter Flyshop carries clothes, equipment, and accessories from all the major brands.  

For less particular businesses, patronize the Minaret Village Shopping Center.  Here you can pick up, among other things, Mammoth souvenirs to commemorate your visit.

Sweet Teeth should bite into the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and the Mammoth Lakes Ice Creamery.  

A quaint store called Color Me Mine specializes in painting and ceramics, testament to the town’s dedication to the arts.  If you visit during one of the town’s five art festivals, most of which take place over the course of the holiday season, there will an even greater selection of Mammoth culture available for purchase.
