YOTELPAD, an innovative concept that offers efficient and innovative condominiums, will soon break ground on a new property in Mammoth Lakes, California. The property will offer future buyers the opportunity to live within walking distance of the gondola and The Village at Mammoth, a four-season destination, and one of the country’s top ski resorts with one of the longest ski seasons in North America.
When it is completed, YOTELPAD Mammoth will be the first new-build community with amenities on the mountain in more than a decade. Sales of YOTELPAD residences will launch this spring while the project is due to be open for the winter of 2020/2021.
Mammoth Lakes, Calif. is a year-round destination and boasts one of the longest ski seasons in North America. It is one of California’s foremost drive-to mountain resorts and the third most visited ski resort in the country with more than one million skier visits each season, and more than two million visitors annually.
Mammoth offers 3,500 acres of skiable terrain and averages 400 inches of snowfall a year. And, as Mammoth Mountain is owned by Alterra Mountain Company and is part of the Ikon pass, owners will have access to fourteen of the world's premier four-season resorts, including Squaw Valley's Alpine Meadows, Big Bear Mountain Resort, Steamboat, and Deer Valley Resort.
"Satisfying the continued trend of compact homes and efficient living, YOTELPAD Mammoth will offer owners a chance to purchase real estate in the most desirable location on the mountain," says Gary Raymond, Managing Director, Vancouver, Ca.-based Replay Destinations, a fully integrated destination development company and the developer behind the project.
"This property is unlike anything else on the market, ideal for those seeking a sustainable and affordable home without sacrificing the luxuries or amenities of a bustling vacation home community," adds Raymond. "After our strong sales success in Park City and upon discovering this incredibly located site in Mammoth, we knew we had to develop the next YOTELPAD here."
YOTELPAD Mammoth will feature 156 efficient and "PADs" (condos) with flexible and adaptable spaces. The units will be fully furnished and will range from 410 to 629 square feet (32 to 58 square meters) with prices starting at $300,000.
The property will also unveil the brand’s newly created "DOMO" concept with 21 townhomes which will offer 1,503 square feet (140 square meters) of living space that can sleep up to ten people. The DOMOs (townhomes) are three floors and will also be offered fully furnished and will sleep up to 10. The townhomes will offer front and back porches, large windows and a rooftop terrace. The townhomes will be priced from $1.5 million.
The property's signature design concept will center around transformative spaces, including multi-purpose furniture with convertible configurations to maximize interior space along with built-in technology and dynamic lighting. Innovative layouts will be complemented by a modern minimalistic design and the newest technologies. Created with today’s multi-destination traveler in mind, each PAD will provide comfortable multifunctional spaces in which to work or relax paired with a clean, compact design that presents a level of luxury at an affordable price.
Units will be outfitted with innovative furnishings, including YOTEL brand’s signature adjustable SmartBeds™ and adjustable mood lighting, a smart TV, multi-power points and easy connectivity for PAD guests. To be sure, the furniture is incredibly innovative.
Beds are high-quality Murphy beds with continuous level shelving, which means there’s no need to remove items. Smart bars convert sofa arms into places for storing books and drinks while bunk beds easily convert into a desk. Flooring is made of engineered hardwoods while lighting is LED, as efficiency and durability are major goals of the company. Additional tech-forward features will be available via the YOTEL app including check-in, keyless entry, on-demand Fix-it and Cabin Crews, to-go mobile dining orders and more.
The development will offer a plethora of amenities for all ages and attentive service utilizing the latest smart living technologies.
The property will feature a seamless indoor-outdoor experience for owners and guests. Its Terrace will serve as a social hub with a bar, numerous fire pits, a year-round pool and hot tub, a dog park, a dedicated area for yoga, in addition to table tennis and bocce ball courts.
The community fireplace lounge will also include the first-ever YOTELPAD bar. With fresh seasonal food and drinks, this all-day dining venue will connect the outdoor social spaces with the indoors through cleverly-designed layouts and areas for relaxing, co-working and informal gatherings.
There will also be a multi-generational space that offers a place for guests to warm up fireside, mingle at the bar, dine at the on-site restaurant or takeover the fully-equipped kitchen available to owners for a home cooked meal with friends and family. Dedicated zones for kids and teens will offer a wide range of activities.
Other amenities in and around the central lobby area will include a 24/7 fitness facility with state-of-the-art equipment, steam room and GRAB+GO light bites. Gear storage, as well as bike storage, will be available to owners seasonally. There will also be a swimming pool and valet parking available for guests and owners.
Catering to business travelers, PODS and HUBS throughout the property will offer break-away spaces for conference calls and meetings. Additional services available to owners will include an interactive app-based ski and car valet, as well as Amazonä lockers.
Beyond design efficiency and cost effectiveness, YOTELPAD is an industry leader in the use of smart technology. A cornerstone for all properties is functional technology, such as robot butlers making in-PAD deliveries to a robotic luggage concierge. YOTELPAD Mammoth will be no different, employing the latest technologies throughout the public spaces, PADs and DOMOs.
YOTELPAD Mammoth is conveniently located as Mammoth Yosemite Airport, is only ten minutes from town. Mammoth Yosemite Airport offers direct flights from Los Angeles year-round and several other non-stop seasonal routes including Burbank, Orange County, San Francisco and Denver.
When it opens, YOTELPAD Mammoth will be the third YOTEL property of its kind in the U.S. with YOTELPAD Miami opening in early 2021 and Park City opening in 2020. For more information about YOTELPAD, see this link.
