Mono County Map

Most people who choose to make Mono County their home are choosing a way of life and a set of values that include some of the most important things in life:  Fresh air, clean water, sunshine, safe communities…and access to unsurpassed outdoor recreation and natural beauty. For many people, playing in the great outdoors and doing what they really love – whether that’s photography, hiking, fishing, rock climbing, kayaking, bird watching, cycling, skiing or snowboarding – is when they are the happiest, when they truly feel alive. Why not make a move that gets you closer to what you love doing?  Why not live where you really feel alive?! As one of the most beautiful places on earth, Mono County has always been a destination for folks who are passionate about their outdoor fun.  Long known for world-class skiing and snowboarding at Mammoth Mountain and June Mountain ski areas, many avid skiers and riders who have moved to Mono County say the same thing: “I came for the winter but I stayed for the summer.”  Year-round, California’s Eastern Sierra is a beloved place to visit, but the recent arrival of Gigabyte capacity high-speed broadband has recently allowed more people to consider making Mono County their home. 

Access to the world beyond the mountains – to your clients, vendors, suppliers, colleagues, family and friends – is critical wherever you choose to live and establish your business.  Air service (commercial service to nearby Bishop, CA coming winter 2021), and high speed internet, combined with the well-maintained US Highway 395, provide that vital access.  Which means you can work remotely or operate your business successfully… with a corner office view of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Whether you wish to relocate yourself and your family, and/or your business, we’re here to help you figure out how to make the choice of a lifetime.  Please call our Economic Development team at 1-800-845-7922 or email or to explore the possibilities.

“If you are losing your leisure, look out; you may be losing your soul.” – Logan P. Smith (1885-1946)
