About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 2 expanded loft/bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Welcome to our ski home perched on the side of Mammoth Mountain at over 8,000 feet with panoramic views of the town and the entire Owens Valley. Experience the magic of Mammoth Mountain, California's premier ski resort featuring world class down hill skiing with a 3,000 foot vertical drop. High speed Quads minimize lift line ups, and with over 50 ski runs there is variety for novice, beginner, intermediate, and expert alike. Gather the family and friends and join us for a fun filled ski vacation that will linger in your memories.

Leave your car safely in the garage, away from parking and traffic congestion in the village. From our front door, a few steps will bring you to the ski trail. Hop on your skis and traverse a well groomed trail to the bunny slope of Canyon Lodge. Ski down and hop on the chair and you are on your way to the first run of the day. At lunch time, head back to the condo via Chickadee and a private trail. Take off your boots, enjoy lunch, relax, and perhaps a short nap. Or enjoy a lunch break at one of the restaurants on Mammoth Mountain.

At days end, ski back to the condo, and head down to the Jacuzzi and sauna to relax those tired muscles and recap those exciting runs that you mastered so well. If there was an occasional fall or mishap, we can understand this "omission" from the conversation. Later at the condo, continue "apres ski" with a glass of wine or cocktail. And as the plaque above the dining table states "THE WEIN KELLAR IS OPEN - EVERYDAY"'. Meals prepared in Irene's newly expanded kitchen are guaranteed to satisfy the most demanding and heartiest appetites and extend the family budget as well. After dinner, enjoy coffee, more conversation, TV, or a movie in front of the crackling wood stove. A full and satisfying day!

After a day of skiing and "apres ski", sleep with come early to many. Our guests enjoy three comfortable queen beds, each on a separate level. Expanded loft/bedroom one is on level two, with a wall mounted TV is open, bright and cheery. Next on level three, is a large bed/sitting room with a queen bed, wall TV, and views of the Sherwin Bowl and National Forest. From level three, the perimeter stairway takes you to level four, to the "sky watcher" loft/bedroom with a queen size bed, and is open, bright and private. Young and old alike, enjoy the sweeping panoramic views of the Valley. The master bathroom, (level three) has a deep soaking tub and separate shower. The downstairs facility, a powder room, and separate shower.

For those seeking a day off from down hill skiing, there is superb cross country skiing, snow mobiling, snow shoeing in the back country, to name a few. Or when the weatherman says "stay inside" enjoy the ambiance of the living room, TV, a quiet read, in front of a crackling fire.

For the cooks night off there are a plethora of restaurants, ranging from (Angels) and more upscale such as Nevados, Tamarack Lodge plus restaurants in the village and at Mammoth Mountain Inn. The Stove restaurant, is known for hearty skiers breakfasts and dinners. And a visit to Schat's Bakery to enjoy custom sandwiches, pastries, confections or 'sweets', is a must.

We enjoy all the conveniences, comforts and amenities of home, at our home in the mountains and do not expect our guests to accept less.

Good Skiing, and Bon Apetit!

Jack and Irene

Keywords: Located on a 14 acre private estate above the town of Mammoth adjoining a national forest. Hiking and biking trails from the front door. In the winter, ski down to chairs 7&8 (Canyon Lodge) or 15&14 (Eagle Express).

About Jack and Irene

Originally from British Columbia, Jack and Irene have been avid skiers and outdoor enthusiasts from day one. Irene's career in banking and Jack's in education, brought them to Southern California. Their skiing interests have taken them to the major resorts of Canada; Whistler, the North Shore Mountains of Vancouver, Sun Peak, Banff and Lake Louise in the Canadian Rockies, and in the east to Mont Tremblant, Quebec, and Stowe, VT. and in the U.S. to Sun Valley, Alta, Aspen, Snowbird, Park City, Lake Tahoe, and the resorts of Colorado. Their interest in Europe has taken them to the Alps, and to the resorts of France, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, and the Pyrenees of Southern France and Spain. The highlight of their skiing endeavors has been helicopter skiing in the Cariboo and Monashees of British Columbia. They are original Timber Ridge owners.

More recently, they have acquired an ocean front home in Birch Bay, Washington state and only 5 minutes from British Columbia and 45 minutes to Vancouver, B. C. They invite you to share it with them. VRBO #192841

Jack and Irene purchased this condo in 1972

Why Jack and Irene chose Gold Country / High Sierra

The privacy, exclusivity, incredible views, the possibility of being able to ski in and out from the front door, captured our imagination. This is our home in the Sierras.

Great condo in good location

  • 4 of 5

We had an excellent stay at Jack and Irene's beautiful Mammoth condo. It was comfortable and very well equipped, Couple things to consider on this condo:

Being able to ski in and ski out was a huge plus on a crowded Mammoth weekend. Getting to the slopes from the condo involves a small hike up the road and trail, but then you ski right to the door on the way back.

The garage is small. A Toyota Highlander barely fit with inches of clearance all around, and the roof box had to come off. Decent additional parking in a lot down by the complex entrance a few hundred yards down the road.

The master bedroom if fabulous. The two loft beds are decent but don't have a lot of privacy. Comfortable accommodations for 6 people but more than 6 would be pushing it.

Communication with Irene was great. Always answered Emails, texts and voice calls and always very helpful.

The bathroom setup is great. Full bath with tub and separate shower at mid level, then two small rooms on the main level, one with sink and toilet and one with shower and sink. This worked great for multiple people getting ready at the same time.

Thanks for sharing your condo with us Jack and Irene!

9000 feet condo setting

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice condo for a family, with 1 bedroom and 2 lofts. We had 3 couples for our long weekend trip, which made for fair accomodations. The TV's weren't working when we arrived, but after 24 hours, Irene helped the Cable Co. reset the system and they functioned properly.

Their kitchen is awesome: large, well stocked with spices/ dishware/ liquor from previous tenants. The forest views are nice, but the wall of windows without shades can make the room cold in the winter. So we had the pot belly fireplace going alot during our winter stay.

The 1 car garage came in handy for 1 of our sedans, but was not large enough for another couple's truck. My Infiniti QX50 could not make it up the steep hill during the icy/ snowy weather we had, so we had to park it for the weekend on Lake Mary Road. And our bad luck, we got a parking ticket due to snow plow activity.

The owners were very nice and usually returned our inquiries within 24 hours.

Wonderful condo!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and our adult children just spent a long weekend at Jack and Irene's condo and it was awesome!! The condo has one large private bedroom, the other sleep areas are open loft spaces, not a real issue for us. The condo was clean and well stocked with plenty towels, blankets, and the like. The location is just enough away from the main part of town and super quite, but still close enough to everything if you need to venture out. The complex has a nice pool and jacuzzi area with a nice deck and beautiful views. We spoke with Irene a few times while at the condo and she was very sweet and helpful. Looking forward to coming back when the snow arrives!

Beautiful location with all the amenities of home

  • 5 of 5

My family of four (two teenagers) stayed in the Timber Ridge condo for four nights in July and had the best time. The views are incredible! We loved the location - just a couple minute drive into town, but inside the condo it felt like we were miles away from everyone. The owners couldn't be nicer and it was clear that they put a great deal of thought and effort into making sure absolutely everything a guest might need was provided...right down to the witch hazel for the mosquito bites we got while hiking in Yosemite. The condo was clean, sunny and very spacious...there was plenty of room for us to spread out but every night we gathered at the dining room table for dinner and game night. Thank you, Irene and Jack, for providing such a lovely stay. We've rented five different properties in Yosemite and yours was by far our favorite. We can't wait to come back!

Very nice

  • 4 of 5

Condo is very nice with fantastic views. We stayed during the summer but this place would be even better for a winter visitor with the ski in and out. Owners were easy to work with and very pleasant.
