When Mammoth Mountain initiated the Mammoth Value Pass (MVP) some 13 years ago the demand for low-end condos increased dramatically. That demand is still strong today. During the early years of this phenomenon I coined the phrase “crashpad” to describe these condos and their intended usage. A good crashpad doesn’t have to be glamorous, it needs good utility for the owner, and of course affordability. The idea is to spend your time outside in the mountains, and your crashpad is where you sleep, shower, make some meals, and store your gear. So here is a classic crashpad. This is on the third floor (top floor) of the Ansel Adams building at the Summit. It is a smaller 1 bedroom / 1 bath. It has south east facing windows. It has no deck. Personally, I would do-away with the little woodburner. There is really no place to store wood anyway. The property has units beneath and on each side so it is well insulated. It has modern windows. So why not just heat with one of the new electric appliances/fireplaces. Makes complete sense and opens up more space in the living room. The kitchen could be remodeled for more efficiency and enjoyment. There are two good closets and a spacious bathroom. Quite frankly, the property is ready to use with fresh paint and new carpet. There is understructure parking and steps to the shuttle. This REO/bank owned property is listed at $146,500.
