A Mammoth Christmas!

ice skating twin lakes

Update: we had 4-6" of fresh snow on Wednesday!

We have new snow forecasted for Tuesday night and Wednesday! 

Our fingers are crossed for it to be a white Christmas..even though Mammoth has already been as fun as it can be: all the lifts at the Mountain are up and running (Canyon and Eagle Lodge opened last weekend!). The Nordic Ski Center at Tamarack has been running since the opening and locals already got a lot of mileage in..and this is not all!

The good thing about the little snow is that the lakes are all frozen and clean: get ready for the best ice skating and hockey playing you can get! People have been skating on Mamie and Twin Lakes. Where is it that you can skate on the clean ice with stunning views like this!?

We hope to see you out there: it doesn't matter what you'll be doing:  that you're going for a walk, skiing, snowboarding, ice skating...when enjoying the outdoors, wins who has the most fun!

It's A Sellers Market! Call Tammy For Your Free Listing Valuation.

Many sellers are under the impression that winter is a slow sales time, but that is a misconception. In a resort town especially, a lot of homes sell in the winter, particularly if there is good skiing. And this season is surely starting off well!

It’s true that sales traditionally peak between Spring and Summer, but the selling season goes well through the winter ski season. Also, the lower winter inventory means less competition to sell!

Ski areas and resort towns vacationers fall in love with the winter wonderland and start looking for a snowy retreat, and Fall and Winter are a great time for buyers to search for new home sites in these areas.

While home sellers may not be thrilled about keeping their home show-ready during the holidays, it’s the perfect time to find a buyer who is vacationing. By continuing to fully market your properties during this season, you won’t miss the vacationer that is searching on their laptop, smartphone or tablet for a property.

Is your house ready for winter?

cozy winter cabin

Winter is coming, the winter season at the mountain has started, and everybody is impatiently waiting for the big snow to come! 

But if you own a home in Mammoth you might not be so excited about the approaching winter. There's a lot to think about to get our homes ready for the season, and we always think we might be missing something.

We all should be aware of the classics (that should have been taken care of already!): service the furnace and water heater, change the filters, drain the lawn irrigation system, trim overgrown branches away from the house, clean the gutters, stock up firewood if you use a fireplace or wood stove, etc.

There are a few more things that we can easily do ourselves to stay warmer and shave the bills.

1- Reverse Ceiling Fans

If your ceiling fan has a reverse switch, use it to run the fan's blades in a clockwise direction after you turn on your heat, and run fans slowly. The fan will produce an updraft and push down into the room heated air from the ceiling (remember, hot air rises).

This is especially helpful in rooms with high ceilings -- and it might even allow you to turn down your thermostat by a degree or two for greater energy savings.

2- Caulk around windows and doors

If the gaps between siding and window or door frames are bigger than the width of a nickel, you need to reapply exterior caulk. (Check the joints in window and door frames, too.) Silicone caulk is best for exterior use because it won’t shrink and it’s impervious to the elements.

Add weatherstripping as needed around doors, making sure you cannot see any daylight from inside your home.

3- Install a door sweep 

Use a door sweep to stop drafts from entering your home under an exterior door. A sweep is a flexible piece of rubber or plastic that’s held to the door’s lower edge by a strip of aluminum.

4- Seal attic air leaks

Find and seal gaps that could be allowing as much as 30 percent of your heated or cooled air to leak outdoors. These leaks can add up to heating and cooling costs.

Pull back attic insulation to find and seal cutouts in drywall for electrical fixtures, pipes, fans and outlets. Also check wiring, chimneys, flues, vent stacks and ducts, and seal them on the inside. Use caulk to fill smaller gaps and pressurized expanding foam for bigger openings

5- Use window coverings

It’s surprising how much insulation curtains, drapes and shades can provide.

Draw window coverings at night and when you’re away to conserve heat in the home. During the day, open drapes of south facing windows to get the most out of the warming sun.

If you have single pane windows that are north facing, you can even consider getting a sheet of insulation foam, cut it to fit, and block them out. 

Otherwise, to enjoy the daylight, you can double them with plastic or bubble wrap. You'll be surprised how much this will help insulating your house.

Now that the due diligence is done we can go have fun in the snow knowing that we'll be back to a warm and cozy home!

The 2017-2018 Opening at Mammoth Mountain is here!

Even though the last storm has not been what we were hoping for, Mammoth Mountain is still planning on opening this Thursday, November 9th. 

The temperatures on the mountain were cold enough that they have been blowing snow on Broadway, Unbound Main and on Andy's Double Gold. It looks like at least Broadway will be open for sure!

So, are you ready for the upcoming winter? It looks like the time has come to finally do the seasonal "toy's closet" change: put away the mountain bikes and fishing gear, and get skis and winter clothing out and ready.

This is one of the many reasons why we love this place so much: 4 seasons to always keep you busy and to have fun in so many different ways!

We hope to see you on the slopes soon!

Thank you all!

Thank you to all my clients and all the fantastic referrals, we are bringing the numbers home in 2017!

Selling during fall or winter season? In Mammoth you can!

mammoth mountain

Everybody knows that spring and summer are the best seasons to sell a house. Thing is, here in Mammoth Lakes it can be different!

Being a year-round resort, from fishing and mountain biking to skiing, the appeal for buyers to look for their new home in Mammoth never ceases!

So, cheer up and let’s get your home ready to sell, taking advantage of the season!

1-    Show what your home looks like in Spring and Summer

Include a photo album or digital slideshow of the exterior in the summer, spring, and fall.

Highlight garden beds, and patios or decks with furniture so the buyer can envision the home year-round.

2-    Basic maintenance becomes key

Check window seals and doors for drafts. A drafty window is most noticeable on a cold day, so take extra efforts to weather seal and insulate around windows and doors.

Have the furnace and water heater serviced: change the filters so the air will have a good, fresh scent.

3-    Let there be light

Shorter days and lower sun make it more difficult to have nice light throughout your home. Besides the usual (retract blinds, and widen curtains, so there’s minimal window coverage. The windows will look bigger, and it’ll encourage daylight to flow into your space.), it might be a good idea to switch some light bulbs for brighter ones.

A bathroom looks great with daylight bulbs (5,000-6,500K) and living spaces, such as bedrooms and living rooms, look best with soft white bulbs (2,700K). Go for cozy and bright.

4-    Curb appeal to enhance the season

Leaf and snow-covered sidewalks can make a perfectly nice home look sloppy and poorly maintained. Use a leaf blower daily to keep leaves, branches, and outdoor dirt off the walkways, and do your best to keep the yard clear of leaves, too.

Place boundary markers on the snow to make it easier to the seller to envision the property.

Keep the deck shoveled and salted so buyers can walk outside to experience the space. If the climate allows, keep outdoor furniture on your patio so they can get a better feel for the outdoor living space. 

A snow-man in the yard is always a nice seasonal addition!

5-    Go for cozy and inviting

Accessorize the main living area with neutral-but-coordinated throws and pillows and unscented candles for ambiance. Feel free to add seasonal accents, but do not over-due it: a couple of small pumpkins on the steps could help, but heavy, Halloween décor would not! If you have vaulted ceilings, a nice and tall Christmas tree can help accentuate the space. But avoid going heavy with religious decoration.

Make an impression with your gas or electric fireplace!

6 Facts about Fall Colors in Mammoth Lakes and the East Side

fall colors

1. Our Fall Color Season GOES ON and on and on

Thanks to the Eastern Sierra’s varied elevations—from approximately 5,000 to 10,000 feet (1,512 to 3,048 m) — the trees peak in color at different times. Bishop, Inyo County and southern Mono County usually turn color first, with Mammoth Lakes, June Lake, Bridgeport and northern Mono County peaking by mid-October.

2. Which kind of trees will change color

Trees that change color in the Eastern Sierra include aspen, cottonwood and willow.

3. Good Timing

What makes the leaves know where to change colors is  the change in air temperature and decreased daylight.

4. Chlorophyll vs. other pigments

The reason we see fall colors is part of an annual cycle that begins in spring and summer: green chlorophyll pigments are active in cells and mask yellow, orange and red pigments of the leaves. The occurrence of fall colors is actually the disappearance of green chlorophyll!

5. Color intensity

Intensity of leaf color is determined by the air’s temperature and moisture. Warm, dry days and cool nights (under 45°F or 7°C) mean brilliant colors; rainy days and warm nights result in less intense coloration.

6. Color Parade

Different leaves have different predominant pigments called xanthophylls (yellows), carotenoids (yellows, oranges and reds), and anthocyanin (red). Anthocyanin is the result of trapped plant sugar, produced by the leaf when days are sunny and nights are cold. That's why some leaves turn deep crimson red, while others become so gold they seem to be lit from within like a lamp.

Excerpted from California's Eastern Fall Color Guide and Map.

Hurricane Harvey: How you can help displaced pets

Rescue groups in California and throughout the country are mobilizing to help pets displaced by Hurricane Harvey and subsequent flooding in Texas and Louisiana.

The devastation Hurricane Harvey slowly is leaving behind includes at least 63 people dead and up to 40,000 homes destroyed. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott suggested the cost of recovery could be as much as $180 billion. What we don’t yet know is the toll it has left on pets caught up in the flood or left behind by their owners, fleeing to save their lives.

In Houston alone, a city of 2.3 million, there likely are thousands upon thousands of pets in need.

Who’s looking out for them? Fortunately, help has come from a multitude of organizations, large and small, from all over the United States, and pet lovers everywhere who are chipping in with money, pet food, blankets, leashes and the promise of a safe haven until Texas is back on its feet.

A perfect example is PetSmart Charities who is reaching out to help pets and pet parents in need. The organization has earmarked at least $1 million in emergency relief funding to help animal welfare agencies who are working on the front lines to rescue, relocate, feed and care for pets that have been left homeless due to the floods. Animal welfare organizations working to save the lives of pets in these areas are can visit www.petsmartcharities.org/pro to apply for an emergency relief grant. 

“Our thoughts are with all of the people and pets who have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey,” said Dr. David Haworth, DVM, Ph.D., President of PetSmart Charities. “We’re committed to supporting everyone we can who has been impacted by this disaster, including pets and pet parents staying in evacuation centers and shelters in Houston and Dallas who may not have access to the pet food and essentials they need.”

The best way to help those impacted by Hurricane Harvey is through monetary donations. Your generous contributions make it possible for PetSmart Charities® to provide emergency relief support.

Outdoors activities on the East Side: road biking

riding hwy 120

What’s your favorite outdoor activity to practice on your free time??

I must say, for us, it’s hard to pick one: there are so many wonderful choices!

Do you like to hike? Run? Climb? Fishing? Golf? Road bike? MTB? Ski? Yoga? Swim? Skateboarding? Photography or nature painting? ...We can keep going! The Eastern Sierra has them all!

So, today I want to talk about road biking. The famous Mammoth Fall Century & Gran Fondo is coming up, and we know a lot of people that are going to do it!

Road biking around here is pretty awesome! First of all, Mammoth as lots of paved bike paths thoughout town, bike trails etc. There might not be too many dedicated bike paths outside of the town's Bike Paths, but certainly the roads around here offer some spectacular riding!

The shoulders are usually pretty wide, and as soon as you get out of the HWY395, you have lots of low traffic, gorgeous views, usually good pavement roads, for miles and miles to pedal! As many as your legs can handle!

The Mammoth Fall Century, which this year is going to be on September 9th, is a top-level cycling event in an amazing landscape! It offers three different options as far as lengths: the “Piccolo”, 42 miles; the “Medio”, 70 miles; and the “Gran Fondo”, 102 miles.

The courses start and end at the Village, so riders beware, you are going to have to ride back up to HWY 203 from HWY 395: a hill almost 4 miles long to conclude your effort. But the rewards are going to be worth it!  The roads, the views, the vibes, the refueling at the 6 aid stations along the course (for the Gran Fondo distance), the food and the party afterward will make all your efforts to pay off!  

So, hey, are you into road biking? Local or not, give it a try! If you have not been training Summer long like a pro, you can still dust your bike off, ride for the next month and give the "Piccolo" a chance!

Aspen, KSL and Mammoth? Mega-pass and mega-changes to be expected!

mammoth mountain

On Monday July 31st, the acquisition of Intrawest Resort and Mammoth Resort by “KLS Capital Partners” and the owners of Aspen Skiing “Henry Crown and Company” (HCC) has been publicly announced as completed.

The new colossus on the ski industry is therefore now shaped by 12 four-season mountain resorts: Mammoth Mountain Ski Area, June Mountain, Bear Mountain, Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows and Snow Summit in California; Steamboat Ski & Resort and Winter Park Resort in Colorado; Blue Mountain Ski Resort in Ontario; Mont Tremblant Resort in Quebec; Stratton Mountain Resort in Vermont; and Snowshoe Mountain Resort in West Virginia.

Its revenue is given by approximately six million skier visits, 20,000 skiable acres and significant land available for real estate development. The deal also includes Canadian Mountain Holidays, the world’s leading heli-ski operator.

So, what does this mean for the town of Mammoth, its residents and its skiers?

As far as the skiers go, besides expecting improvements in lifts, services and lodges in the next few years, the biggest, expected change will be the giant-all-comprehensive-pass. That will be a serious mega-pass! Who is not looking forward to it!?

As far as the town and its residents goes, well, a few changes are to be expected. As read on "The Sheet":

“Mammoth has been Southern California’s mountain home since 1948,” said Rusty Gregory, chairman and CEO of Mammoth Resorts in a press release. “After doubling down on our offerings to Southern California with the purchase of Snow Summit and Bear Mountain in 2014, joining this new venture led by Aspen and KSL is the next logical chapter in the story of Mammoth Resorts."

Gregory maintained that Mammoth would continue to stay on track with priorities including the development of Eagle Lodge and the improvement of existing facilities/ buildings. As for what the ownership change means for employees, Gregory said, “We know we are dealing with careers, lives and communities … and we will be proceeding very thoughtfully.” 

"This new platform, built around a collective passion for the mountains and our commitment to the people who visit, work and live there, is exactly what the ski resort business needs. I am excited about the future prospects for Mammoth Resorts, our people and this new enterprise.”

At any rate, we can expect an increase in the tourism from out-of-state, due to the marketing strategies of Aspen and KSL. It is not news that Mammoth is still considered a “regional resort”, with more dominant ski-states like Utah and Colorado.: besides the fact that it is on the top ten most popular resorts in the nation when ranked by skier visits, it is not a top-of-mind destination resort for skiers not living on the West Coast. Well, that’s bound to change!

This is certainly going to affect Mammoth’s Real Estates market. With more buyers looking to buy and invest into the real estate market in town, the market is expected to become more and more competitive in the months to come.

Properties with ski in-out access are going to be even more enticing!

Just an example of desirable Mammoth Lakes ski in/out properties is this amazing one-of-a-kind residence at the Eagle Lodge ski lift, right on the slope side.
