Janu-buried – For Real!

After the 3-week pummeling of snow from the mega AR events in January, Mammoth Mountain now boasts the most snow in North America – more than 500 inches this season! To put it in perspective, from December 26 through January 17, Mammoth Mountain received 240 inches or a whopping 20 feet of snow. It is fair to say that the Town was literally buried, with many residents and visitors hunkered down in their homes for three weeks only venturing outside for the most basic necessities, and of course to constantly shovel the front door, decks and driveways. It was unreal!  February is off to a spectacular start with stunning blue skies and exceptional conditions, with another 1-2 feet of snow forecast this weekend. This edition of Town e-News features what was and what is coming in Mammoth Lakes with the opportunity to refamiliarize yourselves with the spectacular winter-wonderland known as the Eastern Sierra. Enjoy – you’ve earned it!


What is the Town doing to House our Workforce?

We hear this a lot from people, so we took our housing message to the streets and presented the Town of Mammoth Lakes Housing Program to our community. The main takeaway from our message is that there are 272 affordable unitseither under construction, entitled, or recently acquired through a buy-down program. The goal of the Mammoth Lakes’ housing program is to provide safe, decent, and affordable housing to meet the needs of existing and future residents, with the current focus being on rapidly expanding the availability of affordable workforce housing throughout the community in the near-term (present to end of 2023) to support housing at all economic levels. The Town completed a Community Housing Action Plan in 2017 to “Live, Work and Thrive!” which set a goal of providing 200 – 300 community housing units within 5 years through a combination of new development, redevelopment, housing programs, and policies.

The Parcel Construction Update

Construction at The Parcel reached a major milestone at the end of November, with placement of all of the approximately 100 prefabricated building modules onto the 2nd floor podium of both buildings, topping out both buildings at their final four-story height. The buildings are currently being further weather-proofed and interior construction of utilities and finishes is being completed throughout the winter months. Installation of structural steel framing for the single-story childcare center and community space at the south side of Building A will continue as long as weather permits. Further site work, including installation of dry utilities, roads and sidewalks, is suspended until the spring. Phase 1 of The Parcel, aka “The Sawyer” incudes 81 apartment units within 2 buildings, at several affordability levels and with a variety of unit sizes between studio and 3 bedroom, as well as a community space, childcare facility, and a public park. Units are expected to be available for occupancy this fall.

Anyone interested in living at The Parcel should contact the property manager, Buckingham Property Management, at (855) 452-8250 (option 0) for additional information or to be placed on the waiting list. #theparcelnews

Plaza Suite Opens at the Edison Theatre on February 9

Hilarity abounds in this portrait of three couples successively occupying a suite at the Plaza. A suburban couple take the suite while their house is being painted and it turns out to be the one in which they honeymooned 23 (or was it 24?) years before and was yesterday the anniversary, or is it today? This wry tale of marriage in tatters is followed by the exploits of a Hollywood producer who, after three marriages, is looking for fresh fields. He calls a childhood sweetheart, now a suburban housewife, for a little sexual diversion. Over the years she has idolized him from afar and is now more than the match he bargained for. The last couple is a mother and father fighting about the best way to get their daughter out of the bathroom and down to the ballroom where guests await her or as Mother yells, “I want you to come out of that bathroom and get married!” The Mammoth Lakes Repertory Theatre presents Plaza Suite from February 9-19, 2023 (Thurs – Sat @ 7pm Sun @4pm) at the Edison Theatre – 100 College Parkway.

Recreation for All – Donate Today!   

This February will mark three years since the creation of the Tony Colasardo Scholarship Fund. Parks and Recreation has helped over 100 kids participate in our many summer camps and programs and in partnership with the Colasardo family, we are asking you to continue to support recreation for all!

The Tony Colasardo Scholarship Fund provides full or partial scholarships for the many popular camps and recreation programs offered by the Parks and Recreation Department. Tony Colasardo was a long-time Recreation Commissioner who was a passionate advocate for inclusion and social equity and believed that every child regardless of income level, ability, race or gender should have access to the benefits of parks and recreation.

These scholarships are intended to remove any financial impediment facing a family when deciding to participate in our many camps or programs. We are fundraising for the first two weeks of February. Last year we raised $15,000 – let’s get to $20,000 in 2023. THANK YOU!

Attention Snowmobilers!

In the Town of Mammoth Lakes, beyond the Shady Rest “slow zone” around the softball fields, geothermal pipelines that run above ground are now marked with yellow/black/red bamboo poles about 20 feet apart. Please use caution riding in this area by slowing down and staying on the groomed trail when you are within a quarter mile of the parking lot. Please do not ride your snowmobile over these pipelines. This is a temporary solution while we work to install more appropriate signage and highly visible markings. Thank you for being safe on your snowmobile! Need a map? Download it on our snowmobiling page either in PDF or georeferenced on Avenza for free.
