Along with some much needed rain which came to the town of Mammoth Lakes yesterday and today, Mammoth Mountain received it’s first dusting of snow at the top of the mountain. Although this snow will likely all melt off with higher temps to come later this week, it’s always nice to see a little bit of the white stuff to whet our appetite for the upcoming Ski/Snowboard season! We’re all praying that El Niño delivers some long awaited precipitation….in the form of SNOW!
Other noteworthy happenings in the Mammoth Lakes area:
* Condo inventory decreasing slightly – As we would typically expect this time of year, we’ve seen a slight decrease in the number of condos on the market. We had been up over 210 condos at one point this summer and as of today we currently have 186 condos on the market.
* Measure Z – No or Yes?? This has become a very heated topic of debate and we encourage everyone to educate themselves and learn the facts. You can see both sides at www.VoteNoOnZ.org and www.letmammothdecide.org. Even we as partners have differences of opinion on what is “best” for our town.
* Great turnout for the Mammoth Grand Fondo bike races this past weekend. Coming up September 24 – 27 are the infamous Kamikaze Bike Games. www.kamikazebikegames.com
* Got a condo/townhome that you want to rent out for the ski season? We are getting numerous inquiries about Mammoth Ski Leases. The typical lessee seems to be up to several families who want to partner up together on a lease and come up on weekends and have just one place to stay and store their equipment, as opposed to renting different places each visit. Typical rates for a 2 bedroom + loft townhome is in the $2200/mo range (with the tenants paying utilities).
