Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

A truly unique location on Mammoth Mountain ! Timber Ridge is the highest location in Mammoth, looking down over Canyon Lodge and the Owens Valley. Ski in and ski out (down) to Chair 8 and Canyon Lodge or to Chair 15 & 24 at Eagle Express where lift tickets are sold and miss the lines at Canyon Lodge. (In the summer these same runs become a world class mountain bike trail). The condo has gorgeous views of the Sherwin Range from the living room and master bedroom. The clubhouse directly across from the condo features 'his and hers' saunas, a large spa and a summertime swimming pool. This small complex is surrounded by the national forest, creating a woodsy, remote atmosphere. Nightlife is down the hill (approximately 2 miles) where there are many excellent restaurants and bars.

Remodeled 'down to the studs' two years ago, the kitchen and bathrooms feature custom cabinetry and stone accents as well as heated travertine floors throughout (except for bedrooms where there is new carpet). Sitting in the living room in front of a roaring fire, the view is of surrounding forest and the Owens Valley below. The kitchen with it's custom cabinetry, new appliances and extensive cookware make it easy to stay in and enjoy a meal at home. The master bedroom invites escape with a flat screen tv, gorgeous view of the Owens Valley from the 4 poster bed and a 3/4 bath featuring a heated floor, custom stone accents and a frameless shower enclosure.

The second bedroom has heated, carpeted floors, mirrored wardrobes and a comfortable extra large chair and ottoman. The double twin trundle bed can be attached to become a king bed. Two large windows make the room light and airy.

The garage is attached with stairway access so there is never a need to unearth your car after a snowstorm. The association owns a snowplow/loader which plows our driveways immediately in the event of a storm.

After a day on the mountain, ski home thru the woods (there are trail markers on Bluejay and Chickadee pointing the way to Timber Ridge). Come home to hot drinks, a crackling fire and beautiful sunset views. Go for a soak and a sauna at the clubhouse across the driveway. Make dinner at home or go to one of the terrific restauants just down the hill.

Area activities include superb cross country skiing (just down Lake Mary Road at the Tamarack Cross Country Ski Center), snowmobiling, dog sledding, sledding and back country snowshoeing. Hot springs soaking is popular year around. Summer fun includes golfing, hiking, fishing, backpacking, mountain biking and horseback riding. We are located directly on the world class mountain bike trail that the winter ski runs become in the summer. There are several outlet shops in town including Ralph Lauren and Bass for the less motivated.

As a result of the mountain being developed the last few years, there are more great restaurants and nightlife all over town and on the mountain. Most of the lifts are high speed and enclosed. There is gondola service to the top and to a mid-mountain lodge where skiers and non-skiers can enjoy excellent food at a beautiful restaurant as well as great service at the less formal cafe.

Our favorites restaurants are Nevados and Tamarack Lodge (I never get tired of walking through the enclosed entry lined to the rafters on either side by firewood.) Tamarack is authentic old style lodge with a huge fireplace,lots of deep sofas and hot drinks. They serve French food and have a good wine list. Nevados is very good California cuisine and equally good drinks. A fun, less expensive restaurant we eat at is Angel's, just down the road. The Stove on Old Mammoth Road is an institution that serves huge breakfasts. Our favorite after ski is the Yodler across from Main Lodge. No amount of will power has kept us from Schaat's Bakery, a mecca of wonderful bread, gorgeous pastries, mountain size sandwiches and soups. There is a Schaat's in Bishop and another on the main road to the condo.

About Diane Valine

My family is crazy about any sport that delivers maximum thrills. We scuba, kayak, kite surf, wind surf, sail and of course, snowboard and ski. We live in Southern California near the beach. There are three of us and lots of relatives, especially in ski season.

Diane Valine purchased this condo in 1998

Why Diane Valine chose Mammoth Lakes

We found and bought our condo by accident. An old friend told us she was no longer able to endure the altitude and wanted to sell after thirty years (she was an original owner). We went to Mammoth and found that her condo was ON the ski runs and had a gorgeous view. At that time, Timber Ridge was relatively unknown to all but the locals. We were thrilled with the feeling of remoteness and being surrounded by the forest. My guys love skiing home for lunch and I like staying home drinking morning coffee looking at the great view. I love cross country skiing at Tamarack Ski Center which is right down Lake Mary Road

What makes this condo unique

Real ski in ski out DOWN to two different lifts

A great view

A totally remodeled unit. New kitchen, new bathrooms, heated floors

Surrounded by forest on three sides

Guestbook comments from the owner

A great location for the serious skier. Easy to get to the back bowls and first tracks.

Custom kitchen and bathrooms, heated travertine floors, stylish furniture, a large stove/fireplace and built in humidifier make this a great place to return to after a day on the slopes. An extensively equipped kitchen and new appliances may make you want to stay in. If not, excellent restaurants and bars are just five minutes away. Two large flat screens provide a view to the outside world from the comfort of your living room. Attached garage. Pool (summer only), spa and sauna are right across the driveway. Ski locker in garage. High on the mountain, amidst the forest, this is the place to get away from it all. With no drving necessary, you can be first to the lifts and get fresh tracks.,

Awesome Ski In Ski Out Location, Great condo, Great value!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our Mammoth ski week and I cannot say how much we enjoyed this property. The location is to die for, with amazing views and a true ski in and ski out location. The condo had everything we needed including a well supplied kitchen, a fireplace stocked with wood and our favorite feature which was the heated floors throughout. Could have not been more cosy and comfortable. Really looking forward to our next trip in this condo! Property owner was extremely friendly and helpful. Thanks again!

Diane's condo was very comfortable and made us feel right at home.

  • 4 of 5

The condo was perfect with our biggest complaint being the garage was a little tight for our full size pickup. Easy access to the town and surrounding areas. The location even made for an easy drive into Yosemite! The pool was refreshing and quite relaxing. We hope to visit again soon!

Great weekend getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Diane, the owner, is great to work with. She answered every question we had prior to our arrival and helped plan our stay by offering recommendations on restaurants and activities. In the days before our arrival, she kept us informed of the snow conditions and how to get to the best runs. She was warm, honest, and helpful. Thank you Diane!

Perfect size for a family of 4

  • 4 of 5

My family stayed here for a nice, quiet Christmas this year. We love the location because it is mid mountain and the ski in/ski out is the best. The views are great and the condo was well stocked with everything that you need to prepare a meal. Diane made the process easy and was quick to respond to any email. We would definitely consider staying here again.

Just north of Mammoth we found people offering dog sled rides. It was just great, silently gliding thru the forest where no one had been but the dogs and their sled I think kids would really love it.

There is also a sledding park where person and sled is hauled up the hill to sled back down. .
