My brother and his kids come out every summer and we fly to mammoth from LAX. Weve done it about three times without a problem. The last time flying home they were expecting a lot of wind and turbulence so they asked people to volunteer for the next flight so the plane was lighter. Flew home with out a problem. The stewardess said the flights are rarely cancelled. Also, you fly up the east side and come directly over evo valley to dusy basin. The views are spectacular. I wouldn't worry about the flights getting cancelled.

Footnote: We flew into Mammoth Lakes no problems. Our return flight, (which took us back to LAX to meet our international flight) was very crowded. We learned that the flight the previous day had been cancelled, and that not all passengers had been able to fit onto the next day's flight (ie our flight). We were OK, luckily, but some people from the previous day had had to make "alternative arrangements". ie, ground transport. I'm still not sure how often this happens, but it is worth keeping in mind! Next time I think we will plan on flying out of Fresno or Reno rather than Mammoth Lakes.
