All the resources you need for your Mammoth Lakes business in one place

We all moved to Mammoth Lakes for the lifestyle it offers, and we know the need for balance in your business and your life is paramount. We’ve worked with businesses of all sizes and industries to get them connected to the right people and resources in Mammoth Lakes to propel their business forward.

Step One

Come up with a business name & a business plan, then apply for a Business Tax Certificate, aka a business license, at the town's office. Get more information

Step Two

Don't sign before you meet! Check with Town of Mammoth Lakes staff before you sign a lease or buy property. Zoning and town regulations aren't always clearly understood by landlords and realtors. Don't get trapped in a lease or purchase before you've confirmed with town staff that you can operate your specific business in that location.

Step Three

Meet with Chamber staff. We're keyed into the current business climate, business opportunities and what & who you need to know to set yourself up for success. Schedule a meeting with us today!

For resources on all the various Town, County and State permits you will need for your business, visit CalGold: Business Permits. This site, from the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz), assists you in finding appropriate permit information for your business.
