Events in Mammoth for late August into Labor Day Wknd

Do you want to know what’s going on in Mammoth???

* This weekend (August 28th and 29th) is the Mammoth Reggae Fest here in The Village at Mammoth.  If you’re in town you should definitely check it out.

* Saturday, August 29th, is the Ezakimak Bike/Run Challenge (Kamikaze spelled backwards) where competitors can run or bike from Main Lodge up to the Summit of Mammoth Mountain under a full moon…The full moon Summit Party will take place at The Summit (11,053 feet…you better acclimate!) from 6:30-9:30…come on out and enjoy the full moon!

* Labor Day Weekend will be host to Mammoth’s Rock ‘N Rye festival, again, in The Village at Mammoth.  Music, food, beverages and even a mechanical bull!

Mountain biking is still fun with all the new features that MMSA installs each year.  And even the lesser known free trails are in good shape (Dennis rode the Mountain View trail yesterday and it was in better shape than Downtown).

And why not close out the summer with a relaxing float on a pontoon boat on Lake Mary (760) 934-5353, Convict Lake (760) 934-3800 or June Lake (760) 648-7726.  (If out on Convict, be sure to check out the rope swing just a few hundred yards from the marina at the tall, dead-looking tree).  The waters are warm!

After weeks of smoky skies from the plethora of wildfires burning throughout California, we are finally getting back to our beautiful blue skies and stunning mountain views here in Mammoth.  It has been an amazing summer here in Mammoth and it’s not over yet.


But Winter is JUST around the corner.  Reports of El Niño and possible record precipitation are getting us excited here in Mammoth.  We shall see what the future brings, but so far it is looking like we will finally get some much needed water (in the way of feet of snow!).


The Mammoth real estate market has been fairly steady, but prices, in general, seemed to have flattened a bit.  We currently have 70 single family homes on the market here in Mammoth, ranging in price from $349,000 to $6,500,000 (median price is about $960,000 and average list price is about $1,300,000).  We also have 200 condos currently on the market ranging in price from $119,000 to $1,400,000 (median price is about $340,000 and average is about $425,000).

We typically experience a little buying spree after Labor Day from those of you who want to get into a place before Thanksgiving, so beat the rush and have us help you wade through our high inventory.  Feel free to contact us for more information regarding real estate here in Mammoth.

JSL Now Allows Pets!

JSL Now Allows Pets! … and Town changes addresses to a few complexes

As of January 2015, the Juniper Springs Lodge owners association voted to allow pets at this ski-in / ski-out condo-hotel next to Eagle Lodge at Mammoth Mountain Ski Area.  JSL was well known for a long time to be the only complex in Mammoth Lakes to prohibit pets on the premises.

The new pet policy, however, only applies to homeowners; renters are still prohibited from bringing their pets.  And owners’ pets are only allowed inside the condo units and in the common areas for entrance and exit from the unit only.  They are also not allowed in elevators (must use the stairwells only) and not allowed out on the pool deck.

But this is great news for those buyers who have not purchased in JSL because of this policy.  And it is in-line with Mammoth’s overall pet-friendliness.  (Now if we could only get conventional financing back in to condo-hotels like JSL, Village and Westin!)

New Street addresses for 5 Condo Complexes

In other news, the Town of Mammoth Lakes has changed the street addresses for a few condo complexes (most of them located on or near Meadow Lane) in the interest of public safety and to “make it easier for the public to locate a property within the Town of Mammoth Lakes” (ordinance 2013-47).

Here are the condo complexes affected:

Complex Name NEW ADDRESS Old Address Unit #’s affected
Chamonix 360 Rainbow Lane 803 Canyon Blvd. # 85 – 92
Chamonix 380 Rainbow Lane 803 Canyon Blvd. # 93 – 100
Chateau Sierra 3170 Chateau Rd. 3224 Chateau Rd. # 31 – 42
Snowflower 4710 Minaret Rd. 3 Meadow Lane # 1 – 88
Sunrise 103 Meadow Lane 50 Meadow Lane # 1 – 51
La Vista Blanc 167 Meadow Lane 122 Meadow Lane # 1 – 80

Many other condo complex addresses were changed a few years ago (i.e. many at Snowcreek). Feel free to reach out to us if you have a question about the address of your complex.
