Put your car in cruise control and sit back before you know it you will be in Mammoth.

Its a fun activity and being outdoors lets you experience the changing weather. Then there is night skating which is a blast also. The air is cooler the stars are out and there you are enjoying it all.
If you want to experience a wilder side of ice skating you can try June Lake. When the lake is frozen you can see the locals on the lake skating. I personally am not comfortable with this as the ice is not groomed and falling is a reality that I don't want to deal with. Also I'm not too keen on the idea of falling through the ice if it is not frozen completely. Call me a fair weather ice skater if you will. In any case, depending on your comfort level ice skating is fun for all ages especially for adults as I think it brings out the kid in all of us. You find yourself laughing, relaxing and having fun.

With increased flights, the number of passengers flying Horizon Air between Mammoth and LAX has skyrocketed ... seems the overall situation at the Mammoth Yosemite Airport is gaining altitude ...
By Geisel, THE SHEET
Even if you’re George Clooney’s character in the recent movie “Up in the Air,” it would be hard to rack up 10 million frequent flier miles going between here and Los Angeles. Even so, a lot of travelers are taking advantage of Mammoth/Yosemite’s expanded flight schedule, especially between here and LAX.
According to the most recent booking report figures presented to the Airport Commission Wednesday evening, bookings are up roughly 110% over the same time last year. One would think that an additional flight might water down that statistic, but the opposite seems to be true. According to Assistant Airport Manager Brian Picken, the stats aren’t averages either, but represent actual “butts in seats.”
And even the recent bout of weather hasn’t hampered travel much, with only one or two delays experienced, and a handful of cancellations, all weather-related. If anything, said Airport Manager Bill Manning, most flights are turning around quite speedily, averaging 15 minutes early both arriving and departing. By comparison, Vegas and Orlando airports were both recently closed for icing, but so far ice has not been problematic at MMH.

Brimming with enthusiasm and excitement, Deena and Andrew Kastor told the monthly Chamber of Commerce about the Mammoth Track Project, which is scheduled to break ground in April 2010.
The all-weather, year-round track and infield should be complete some 90 days later.
The track and infield represent Phase I of the project, along with terraced seating, a fitness trail and some fencing. Phase II includes clubhouse, dog park and parking lot and picnic pavilion at the location on Green Church Road.
In connection with the track project, Deena Kastor spoke to the monthly Chamber luncheon about the world of possibilities the track presents. She envisions it as a place for running but also for track and field events, with hurdles and pole vaulting and steeplechase pits.
She talked about the opportunities for education and running, citing the example of a 21-day running camp this summer that would be a collaboration between Cerro Coso Community College and the High Sierra Striders running club. “Twenty-one days is the magic number to get oxygen pumping more efficiently,” Kastor said.
The Kastors’ dream of Mammoth being a high-altitude training site moves closer with construction of the Mammoth Track. Half of the $4 million dollar cost has been raised so far, enabling Phase I to get under way. To keep up to date visit mammothtrackproject.org

A contract tells the guest what they are responsible for and what is expected of them during their stay at the vacation rental. The language in the contract should be clear and detailed so there is no confusion.The more details the better. A contract similarly lets the guest know what the owner is providing in terms of refunds, cancelations, deposits, damage repair and so on.
By having a clear and precious rental contract both parties can rest assured that in the event of a problem the finger pointing will be at a minimal because each parties responsibilities have been defined ahead of time.
More on contracts and keys points to add to your contract if you are an owner and keys things to watch for if you ar a guest, will follow in the next blog.
