Rediscovering Mammoth Lakes

September 28, 2012

Sadly, before my recent trip, I hadn’t visited the Mammoth Lakes area for a long time, having been a regular winter visitor when I lived in Southern California. Back then I saw the mountain, the condo, the restaurants and the clubs. It had never occurred to me that this was also a wonderful summer recreation area. Boy, was I surprised.

If you stand on top of Mammoth Mountain and are not obsessed with skiing down in one piece, you can take the time to look around, and what you see is the 10-by-20 mile Long Valley Caldera.

Paying the devil his due

September 28, 2012

With the settlement of the MLLA lawsuit all but done, Mammoth enters into a new phase.

Now we all get to see who walks the walk.

Since 1997, the year Terry Ballas proposed his idiotic airport condo project, our people have talked and talked. Then they talked some more. Along with all that talk-the-talk there were extended periods of finger pointing and blame gaming.

All that comes to an end right now, and over the course of the next three months.

Watch for that fire bill in your mailboxes

September 7, 2012

 

You may very soon get a bill from the State for fire protection. A bill was passed in July 2011 that establishes a new fee for anyone living in a State Responsibility Area (SRA). To see if you live in a SRA, visit www. firepreventionfee.org/ sraviewer.php.

This Summer

September 7, 2012

It is hard to say how Mammoth did this summer, but practically all the indicators suggest it was exactly what we needed.
