Mammoth Mountain land swap may be at risk

August 17, 2012

The future of a land trade that Mammoth Mountain Ski Area is pursuing for land at the base of Main Lodge may be at risk, according to Mono County Supervisor Vikki Bauer.

A proposed land trade with the U.S. Forest Service for the parcel of federal land needs the approval of Congress, since the forest service does not have enough land to trade to match the value of the property, she said. Congress must get involved when it takes a certain amount of cash to make up the difference in value and land available.

Mammoth is not the only place in the county facing increasing bear problems these days, as the dry summer forces hungry bears out of the woods and into human communities.

Walker residents found that out first hand recently, when they tried to drop off their garbage at the county dump.

At least one bear has been active at the dump this year, to the point that the dump has been closed a few times to avoid human and bear encounters.

August 17, 2012

The Gateway ‘Welcome’ project is $108,395 over budget estimates, but it still is moving forward.

Construction could begin as early as September for the two signs on both sides of S.R. 203 after the Town Council Wednesday evening approved more public art funds to the project.

Those funds are earmarked and not a part of the general fund, the council emphasized in explaining the move, although that did not mollify the concerns of Councilmember Joe Bacon.

Had enough music in the woods yet?

That would be, “No.”

On the heels of Bluesapalooza two weekends ago and Latin music in the Village at the Margarita Festival (see P. 1), comes the Mammoth Festival—Wine, Music, Food & Art.

This is a Mammoth Mountain Ski Area event, and those people know how to put on a show.
It all began last night on the ski hill with a five-course “Winemaker Dinner” at Parallax, and then continues tonight (Friday) at the Village, with live music by Berel Alexander during the Mammoth Mountain Community Foundation’s “Wine Walk.”
