A Mammoth Christmas!

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.
