Welcome to our ski home perched on the side of Mammoth Mountain at over 8,000 feet with panoramic views of the town and the entire Owens Valley. Experience the magic of Mammoth Mountain, California's premier ski resort featuring world class down hill skiing with a 3,000 foot vertical drop. High speed Quads minimize lift line ups, and with over 50 ski runs there is variety for novice, beginner, intermediate, and expert alike. Gather the family and friends and join us for a fun filled ski vacation that will linger in your memories.
Leave your car safely in the garage, away from parking and traffic congestion in the village. From our front door, a few steps will bring you to the ski trail. Hop on your skis and traverse a well groomed trail to the bunny slope of Canyon Lodge. Ski down and hop on the chair and you are on your way to the first run of the day. At lunch time, head back to the condo via Chickadee and a private trail. Take off your boots, enjoy lunch, relax, and perhaps a short nap. Or enjoy a lunch break at one of the restaurants on Mammoth Mountain.
At days end, ski back to the condo, and head down to the Jacuzzi and sauna to relax those tired muscles and recap those exciting runs that you mastered so well. If there was an occasional fall or mishap, we can understand this "omission" from the conversation. Later at the condo, continue "apres ski" with a glass of wine or cocktail. And as the plaque above the dining table states "THE WEIN KELLAR IS OPEN - EVERYDAY"'. Meals prepared in Irene's newly expanded kitchen are guaranteed to satisfy the most demanding and heartiest appetites and extend the family budget as well. After dinner, enjoy coffee, more conversation, TV, or a movie in front of the crackling wood stove. A full and satisfying day!
After a day of skiing and "apres ski", sleep with come early to many. Our guests enjoy three comfortable queen beds, each on a separate level. Expanded loft/bedroom one is on level two, with a wall mounted TV is open, bright and cheery. Next on level three, is a large bed/sitting room with a queen bed, wall TV, and views of the Sherwin Bowl and National Forest. From level three, the perimeter stairway takes you to level four, to the "sky watcher" loft/bedroom with a queen size bed, and is open, bright and private. Young and old alike, enjoy the sweeping panoramic views of the Valley. The master bathroom, (level three) has a deep soaking tub and separate shower. The downstairs facility, a powder room, and separate shower.
For those seeking a day off from down hill skiing, there is superb cross country skiing, snow mobiling, snow shoeing in the back country, to name a few. Or when the weatherman says "stay inside" enjoy the ambiance of the living room, TV, a quiet read, in front of a crackling fire.
For the cooks night off there are a plethora of restaurants, ranging from (Angels) and more upscale such as Nevados, Tamarack Lodge plus restaurants in the village and at Mammoth Mountain Inn. The Stove restaurant, is known for hearty skiers breakfasts and dinners. And a visit to Schat's Bakery to enjoy custom sandwiches, pastries, confections or 'sweets', is a must.
We enjoy all the conveniences, comforts and amenities of home, at our home in the mountains and do not expect our guests to accept less.
Good Skiing, and Bon Apetit!
Jack and Irene
