Mammoth Lakes Market Trends September 14, 2018

Fall Colors at Lake Sabrina out of BishopThe past few days have seen much cooler temperatures and high winds in the Eastern Sierra.  This is the time of year when the distinct and noticeable change from summer to fall arrives.  The pine trees shed their brown needles, the Aspens start to turn colors, and the countdown to ski season opener begins.  I enjoy the transition into fall when football games are back on and the town becomes quiet and peaceful after the busy summer season.  The transition from summer to fall brings a great time of year for colorful and scenic fall hikes.  Some of the wonderful areas to experience vibrant fall colors are Rock Creek Lake, the Coldwater Canyon trails, Mammoth Crest trail, Mammoth Rock trail, June Lake, Virginia Lakes, Lundy Lake, etc.   The temperatures are cooler, the colors brighter, no mosquitos, and the sun angle creates a beautiful shimmer on the lakes, which can be seen from above on most trails with lake views.  Having just returned from Del Mar for a few days last week, the weather there was unusually cool and overcast for early September.  It wasn’t the best beach weather, but the ocean temperatures were very warm at 78 degrees.  The water was warmer than the air temperature.  This definitely made me wonder what kind of an effect the warm ocean temperatures may have on our winter precipitation, and prompted me to do some research about what is currently forecasted.

Convict Lake in Late Summer As we approach Labor Day weekend, the unofficial end of summer in Mammoth Lakes, it’s hard to believe how quickly it went by.  This summer started off warmer than usual on or around June 1st and stayed very warm throughout the subsequent weeks.  The fires that burned in the vicinity brought unwanted smoke into the Town of Mammoth Lakes, which made outdoor activity difficult for extended periods of time.  However, tourism remained strong and healthy this summer, which seems to be the new “norm”.   The temporary Yosemite park closure, due to fire threats, also brought many first-time visitors to Mammoth as a result.  With added recreational options such as stand up paddle boarding rentals, E Bike rentals, kayak rentals and a variety of other activities, this mountain resort was teeming with activity and happy campers.

Snowcreek Meadow towards end of summerTypically, the fall like temperatures begin around the first week of September, followed by a few bursts of “Indian summer” warmer temperature, which can occur in October.  We should begin to see the first traces of fall colors in the next couple of weeks.  As we begin the transition into fall, the excitement of ski season around the corner is evident.  This is the time of year when slope side or ski in, ski out properties become more...

Mammoth Lakes Real Estate Market Trends and News

Alterra Mountain Company Logo with Mammoth Mountain in Winter SnowAs of today, August 1, 2018, the Mammoth Lakes real estate market has a total of 108 condos, 43 homes and 54 vacant land listings.  On August 1st last year, we had a total of 80 condos, 52 homes and 42 lots on the market.  So, the inventory is higher this year for condos, lower for homes, and higher for vacant land listings.  Real estates sales in Mammoth Lakes remain consistent, but have slowed slightly from last year.  It is my opinion that the demand was higher last year because prices were lower, we had a record year of snowfall and KSL & Aspen Skiing Company (now called “Alterra Mountain Company”) announced their acquisition of Mammoth Mountain on April 12, 2017.  The new ownership is keeping any future development plans very quiet.  The renovations currently underway in Canyon Lodge are said to include an escalator and other upgrades to the food service and bar areas, but nothing as substantial as what some of the mountain employees thought a few months ago.  The ski lockers will remain.  With regard to Eagle Lodge, it is rumored that Alterra didn’t like the previous approved plans, so they will look to begin again with a new set of architectural plans and concept (much needed).  They do plan to invest a substantial amount in upgrading the Mountain lodges and on-mountain operations over the coming years.  As the Ikon pass will most likely bring more crowds to the area, any improvement to the lodges and infrastructure to handle larger crowds would be highly beneficial and appreciated by the winter visitor. 

Since the announcement of the new ownership, many sellers have been listing at higher...

Mammoth Creek Flowing and Aspens Spring 2018After a very rainy month of May, June has started off with warm temperatures and more gorgeous weather to follow in the long-range forecast.  Temperatures will be in the mid-70s over the next 10 days, with plenty of sunshine and blue skies.  It’s definitely feeling like summer is here!  May rains have turned foliage and fauna bright green, and wild flowers are beginning to bloom in the hills and meadows with snow covered peaks in the background.  Summer is my favorite time of year in Mammoth Lakes.  I remember years ago, it was all about winter and skiing for me.  After living in Mammoth for almost twenty years, I have come to appreciate all four seasons and what each one offers.  Each season brings something special: Spring brings blooms and the return of the birds singing, summer brings flowers, lush landscapes and herds of deer around town, fall brings vibrant colors and the anticipation of ski season around the corner, and winter brings the excitement of snow and skiing/riding the mountain. 

Summer in Mammoth Lakes is a special time of year, which attracts more and more visitors each year.  The hiking, mountain biking, fishing, golf, tennis, summer festivals, and of course, the breathtaking scenery and pleasant temperatures are some of the reasons why people enjoy coming to Mammoth during this short season.  There is something so peaceful about...

Mammoth Lakes Olympians and Real Estate Market Conditions

Shaun White at Pyeong Chang Olympics in Half PipeThe Winter Olympics currently underway in Pyeong Chang showed Shaun White’s hard-earned gold medal victory yesterday in the men’s half pipe competition.  The evolution of talent and skills in the half pipe has reached incredible athletic levels over the last few winter Olympic games.  Winning the gold medal for Shaun was no easy task coming out of a severe fall and injury in New Zealand last October, while training in the half pipe, along with competing against several other extremely talented snow boarders from all over the world.  Shaun White, who invested in Mammoth Mountain a couple of years ago, trains in a variety of places, but most frequently in Mammoth.  The same is true of Chloe Kim, a 17-year old phenom who took home the gold medal for the ladies’ half pipe competition.  Chloe has been training in Mammoth for many years as has Kelly Clark, a Mammoth local who has won 7 gold medals in the Olympics and Winter X Games combined.  Let’s not forget about the summer Olympic athletes that are also Mammoth localsl: Deena Kastor, Olympic medalist and American Record Holder, and Meb Keflezighi, long distance marathon runner and Olympic medalist.  Mammoth Lakes is home to some of the finest athletes in the world and provides an ideal training...

Mammoth Lakes Peak of the Market vs. Today’s Real Estate Values

How is the Mammoth Lakes real estate market doing in comparison to its 2006 peak of the market prices?  The short answer is: Still a way to go to catch up to those property values. 

Village at Mammoth at Dusk During Summer FestivalSome background on what spurred the price increase in property values during Mammoth’s 2006 peak of the market prices.  Back in the early 90s, you could buy a 1 & loft, 1-bath condo for around $70,000 (in town). During the period between 1996 and 2000, real estate property values roughly doubled in price.  Up until Intrawest came to town in the late 1990s with big plans, Mammoth looked much different.  There was no “Village at Mammoth”, Village gondola, we still had “Warming Hut 2” and the chairs were all numbered and in much need of some upgrades. 

Intrawest completed construction on the first condo development, Juniper Springs Lodge, in 1999.  This was the official start on their development plans in Mammoth that would drastically raise property values in the years to follow.  The additional developments that followed Juniper Springs Lodge were: Sunstone in 2000, Mammoth Green & Eagle Run in 2002, Juniper Crest I & II in 2004/2005, Cabins at Crooked Pines in 2005 and Solstice in 2006.  While the new Eagle Lodge condo developments were being completed, the Village at Mammoth broke ground in 2000 with the first of the buildings (White Mountain Lodge) completed in 2001, Lincoln House in 2003 and Grand Sierra Lodge in 2004.  When Starwood Capital Group LLC announced the purchase of Mammoth Mountain in 2005, prices skyrocketed to historic levels.

Deer Valley Ski Area, Utah Many of you may have already heard about the acquisition of Mammoth Mountain by KSL/Crown Family, who also just purchased Deer Valley in Utah.  The KSL/Crown company will come up with a new name and brand for the new partnership with a growing portfolio of ski resorts in North America.  Similar to Vail’s “Epic Pass”, eventually, Mammoth passholders will most likely have access to the conglomerate of ski resorts owned by KSL/Crown, which include:  Aspen Highlands, Colorado, Aspen Mountain, Colorado, Buttermilk, Colorado, Snowmass Ski Area, Colorado, Alpine Meadows, California, Bear Mountain Resort, California, Blue Mountain, Ontario, June Mountain, California, Mammoth, California, Snow Summit, California, Snowshoe, West Virginia, Squaw Valley, California, Steamboat Ski & Resort Corporation, Colorado, Stratton, Vermont, Tremblant, Quebec, and Winter Park Resort, Colorado.  As Mammoth is discovered by more people because of the new ownership and other resorts under their umbrella, perhaps this will drive more demand to owning real estate and prices will continue to rise. 

The current inventory levels have increased over the past couple of weeks, however, inventory levels are still quite low for late August.  There are 58 homes on the market, 85 condos and 46 lots.  Inventory for this time of year is usually double the amount for condos, which have been very popular under the $500K price point during spring and early to mid-summer months.  As of today, there are a total of 16 homes, 53 condos and 3 vacant land...

Snowcreek Meadow with Wildflowers and Mammoth Rock in BackgroundWe’ve had some gorgeous summer weather in Mammoth Lakes with the exception of this past weekend, with some heavy rains on Saturday during the “Blues and Brews” festival.  The meadows and the foliage are spectacular this year.  Wildflowers of every variety seemed to have popped up after the rainstorm this weekend.  Mammoth Mountain officially closed this weekend for skiing, but the recreation continues with the mountain bike park in full swing.  Warm temperatures are expected to continue (low to mid 70s) over the next 10 days.

Mammoth Lakes back country lakeHeading into the unofficial start of the summer, Memorial Day weekend, Mammoth Mountain still has several feet of snow, which would compare with coverage for an above average season during late February.  Because of the substantial snowpack, which will take quite some time to melt, the outdoor recreational opportunities will be limited.  Camping, hiking, and even golf may not be an option until July.  Although most of the snow has melted from the Snowcreek golf course, the flooding is an issue with the snow that has just begun to melt from the Sherwins and Crest.  Mammoth has had some short bursts of warm weather, which has started the snowmelt, but we haven’t seen anything yet!  The Snowcreek meadow preserve has become one flowing river, which will only intensify once the temperatures turn very warm for extended periods of time.  Enormous amounts of snow can be great fun in the winter months for skiing, but can slow down the summer recreational activities in the higher elevations due to the time it takes for the snow to melt.   It is questionable as to when the campgrounds surrounding the lakes basin will be clear of snow and open for camping this summer.  The HWY 120 to Yosemite isn’t expected to open until July this year as well.  There is no doubt that the summer foliage will be exceptional this year with a variety of wild flowers and greenery all over Mammoth.  Mammoth Lakes offers exceptional beauty in the summer months that many of the winter visitors have yet to discover. 

The Mammoth Lakes real estate market experienced a noticeable increase in sales volume during the months of April and May, which is uncharacteristic for this time of year.  Typically, after Canyon and Eagle Lodges both close for the winter,...

Top of Mammoth Mountain Ski Area on February 14, 2017The skiing and opportunity for winter recreation have been incredible so far this winter season.  The mountain has gotten so much snow that even some of the expert runs now seem to be accessible for many skiers and boarders for the first time in years.  In all of the 17 years I’ve lived in Mammoth, I can’t recall this amount of snow by February 19th.  The storm track seems to continue to be active into the long range forecast.  Mammoth Mountain now reports having the most snow in the country, which is not a stretch of the truth at all…  Check out “On the Snow’s” reporting of the most snowfall for U.S. ski resorts showing Mammoth Mountain at the top with 350” at the summit.  

Although it’s a blessing to have so much snow after the consecutive years of drought (since 2010/2011 ski season), the copious amounts of snow have also brought the Town of Mammoth with the issues of dealing with too much snow all at once.  Although many of the storms have brought feet of snow, some of the storms were above freezing, which brought several inches of rain (on top of the feet of snow) to Mammoth.  This created flooding issues in various complexes around town.  The roads took quite a bit of work to get caught up with snow removal after the powerful series of storms in January that brought feet of snow to Mammoth, but everything seems to be under control at the moment.  The Town has had to start trucking out piles of snow lining the streets around town to keep the option open for emergency snow storage if these...

Mammoth Lakes Summer 2016 Review

Fishing and Kayaking on Twin Lakes in MammothSummer is officially coming to an end as we begin our transition into fall and the lovely fall colors that this wonderful season brings.  Mammoth enjoyed record tourism this summer with record-breaking visitor numbers.  So many people were here enjoying the Eastern Sierra and the wide range of outdoor recreational activities: Back packing, Fishing, golf, hiking, mountain biking, road biking, tennis, paddle boarding, moto cross and paragliding (to name a few).  It seems that the hot temperatures in Southern California motivated visitors to head for the mountains, which resulted in Mammoth’s busiest summer in history.  I remember years ago when our shoulder seasons would last about six months of the year, which would begin in April and last through October.  The director of tourism for Mammoth has done an exceptional job in putting Mammoth on the map and getting people here to enjoy the year-round resort community, which Mammoth has become.  I’m not sure we really even have a shoulder season anymore.  People seem to be drawn to Mammoth all year long to enjoy the multitude of recreational opportunities or festivals.  Seeing this consistent explosion in tourism is great for the local businesses, which depend on tourism to survive.  

Snowcreek Fairway Ranch on Golf Course Entrance SignIn terms of real estate, it was a busy summer with record inquiries on active listings, property showings, and a lot of curiosity about possibly owning a vacation home/condo in Mammoth. ...

Mammoth Creek with Views of Snow Covered Sherwin MountainsSpring has sprung in Mammoth.  The long-awaited warmer temperatures, creeks flowing, green grass and flowers are finally here, just in time for Memorial Weekend.  The weather should be beautiful with sunny skies in the mornings and thunderstorms in the afternoons over the long weekend.  The Town of Mammoth Lakes is reporting a projected occupancy of 80% over the weekend, which is almost as high as peak winter ski season.  Both the Sierra Star and Snowcreek golf courses opened this morning and are looking great!  After a few months of uncertainty and discussions about the Sierra Star golf course possibly shutting down
for good, it is a welcome sight to see this extremely valuable resort amenity in full operation.

So, what is the Mammoth Lakes real estate market doing?  Below are charts with closed sales data for all categories combined and individual categories from January 1st, 2015 through May 27, 2015 (last year), and the same period year-to-date.    

January 1, 2015 – May 27, 2015, had a total of 128 closed sales for homes, condos and lots combined.  There was a total of 26 closed residential sales (single family homes), 99 condos and 2 lots: 


Marriott International & Starwood Hotels and Resorts – Acquisition of Westin Monache, Mammoth Lakes, CA

Side by Side Photo of Marriott & Starwood Hotels at NightAs you may or may not have heard, on November 17, 2015, Marriott International began the process of purchasing Starwood Hotels and Resorts.  Part of this acquisition includes the popular Westin Monache resort condo hotel in Mammoth Lakes.  I only learned of this yesterday when a client who owns a condo at the Westin Monache advised that this was in process.  The combination of these two hospitality companies will create the largest hotel company in the world.

Westin Monache Lobby Area in Mammoth LakesThe Westin Monache management advised owners and Starwood Preferred Guests that they would continue to adhere to the franchise agreement signed in 2007.  This would imply that there wouldn’t be any changes to the brand, but this will be confirmed at a later date.  The Westin also plans to do some updating and renovating to the main lobby area and the common areas of the Westin Monache building in the near future.

The Marriott draws a large International crowd of business and recreational guests.  I personally view this change as a positive, which could possibly draw more rental guests to the existing Westin Monache condo hotel, in Mammoth.  Here is an interesting article regarding possible ...

Mammoth Lakes Real Estate Market Conditions January 26, 2016

Skiers Enjoying Mammoth Mountain Fresh SnowAs of today, January 26, 2016, the Mammoth Lakes real estate market has a total of 54 homes, 141 condos, and 44 vacant land listings on the market.  The series of snowstorms, which started late November through present, have made the skiing/riding conditions excellent.  As a result, the Town of Mammoth Lakes has enjoyed some of the highest tourism numbers we’ve seen in years (during the winter season), which is great for the local economy.  We have another series of storms coming this Friday through the following week, which should continue to build the great snow pack.

Although the excellent skiing/riding conditions have brought healthy tourism to Mammoth this season, the strong demand for real estate hasn’t quite surfaced yet.  Typically, the winter season coupled with good snowfall creates a buying frenzy from the holidays through spring time.  It appears that even with aggressive price reductions, some properties are still sitting on the market.  Heading into 2015 last year, there seemed to be an obvious shortage of attractive homes on the market along with a more limited inventory of condos and homes.  This year, the inventory seems to be a bit higher, despite the snow we’ve gotten.  There is no question that the uncertainty in the markets (world and stock markets) has played into the apprehension to buy real estate.  As we approach the presidential elections in November, it will be interesting to see...

Mammoth Lakes News & Properties in the Spotlight November 1, 2015

Fall Colors in the Snowcreek MeadowThis has been a beautiful fall season so far with gorgeous and vibrant fall colors, and spectacular weather.  For those who have never been to Mammoth Lakes during the fall (late September and October), this is probably one of the best times of year to take in the scenery of fall colors and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the mountains without crowds.  Mammoth Mountain Ski Area is scheduled to open on November 11th.  We have a winter weather advisory in the forecast for this evening and into tomorrow afternoon.  Approximately a foot of snow is expected to fall and frigid temperatures to follow this storm over the next few days.  This is great news for the ski area, and will more than likely attract some attention for the ski season opener. 

As of today, November 1st, the Mammoth Lakes real estate market has a total of 57 homes, 141 condos, and 50 vacant land active listings for sale.  The inventory has significantly shrunk over the past few weeks mostly due to several expired listings, a few cancelled listings, new escrows and closed sales.  Many sellers have realized that continuing to extend a listing, or have it on the market during what has mostly been an inactive selling season, doesn’t make...

Mammoth Lakes Real Estate Market Conditions August 22, 2015

HOUSE WITH GREAT LOCATION, INCREDIBLE VIEWS AND LIGHTAs of today, August 22, 2015, the Mammoth Lakes MLS shows a total of 71 homes, 199 condos and 57 lots on the market in Mammoth Lakes only.  Although there have been some sales during the summer season so far, for the most part, the condo market seems to be sitting in comparison with single family homes.  Attractive homes located in desirable locations, upgraded, or offering views, and bright sun light, seem to be in more demand versus condos.  Many buyers are looking at the high costs of the monthly HOA dues (homeowner’s association dues) and prefer to spend more on a house with the extra amount they can finance in place of paying astronomical HOA dues.  However, those buyers who do want to have the option of being able to generate some form of rental income to offset their costs of ownership will lean more towards a condo purchase (which can be rented nightly if allowed in the CC&Rs). 

Westin Monache Condo Hotel Makes the Highest Income for CondosThe majority of buyers who are considering a condo purchase in Mammoth Lakes are asking what type of income can be generated on an annual basis.  Since the bulk of the highest rental income will occur during ski season, if the snow conditions are lacking, then income will also be lacking.  Although there are historical rental income averages to provide prospective buyers with an idea as to what may be expected for income, one can never really “bank on” future earnings.  There are so many variables involved...

'Godzilla' El Nino Predicted for California 2015/2016 Winter Season

Riding Deep Powder on Dragon's BackThis could hopefully become what the news source states below, a very powerful "El Nino" forecasted for this coming winter.  California could receive even more copious amounts of snow than during the last official "El Nino" event we had back in 1997/1998.
