Besides mammoth being extremely pricy to land and fuel the density altitude might get a little to high for my experience and equipment.
Any suggestions on altitude flown and path? certain winds / directions?

I live in socal and love visiting bishop and mammoth and would eventually like to fly up there.
Does anyone have advice on flying the valley?
Especially the wind. I know they can get insane mountain waves.
Thanks in advance.

I fly a 172 out of F70... Knownig the limitation of densisty altitude will keep me from flying into mammoth and sticking to the cooler months in bishop.
