Summer of '13

September 16, 2013

The summer events schedule is over for this year, and we’re not the only ones trying to make sense of it.

The Mammoth Lakes Recreation Commission finds itself at the center of the dissection.

In a sparsely attended meeting on Tuesday afternoon, the commission moved forward in the hopes of forming a policy as to the use of Measure U tax.

It is a critically important discussion, since the town now leans so heavily on generating sales, TBID revenue and Transient Occupancy Taxes (TOT) as its summer economic platform.

Hello Mammoth!

September 16, 2013

I just spent Saturday with you, as I was riding in the Kamikaze Bike Games.  I wanted to share with you my experience of spending the day in my “happiest place on Earth.”

First off, I want to send a huge thank you to the town of Mammoth Lakes, Bill Cockroft, and Caroline and Amanda for hosting/promoting such an excellent event. 

It’s been far too long for such an event at Mammoth, and though it may not be as big as the heydays of the 90s, I can see it growing to such a level in the not-too-distant future.

September 16, 2013

With the fall color season on the immediate horizon, Mammoth trails activists fear the Lakes Basin is about to put its worst foot forward.

Ultimately, said Mammoth Trails Committee chairman Sean Turner, it’s about the guests visiting Mammoth in what is arguably its most pristine time of the year.

“We’re leaving our guests with a bad experience,” he said on Monday, Sept. 9, during a discussion among members of the Mammoth Lakes Trails Coordinating Committee.

Water district gears up for another battle over Mammoth Lake’s drinking water

September 16, 2013

Fresh from one battle over drinking water, Mammoth’s water district is now plunging into another—this time over a proposed new geothermal plant that would be located to the northeast of the existing geothermal plant on Casa Diablo Road.

The project, called Casa Diablo IV, would double the current geothermal generating capacity of the site, which also includes an older plant still in operation.
