MAMMOTH, CALIF. – YOTELPAD Mammoth, the brand’s third U.S. location following the successful launches of Park City and Miami, is slated to break ground in Summer 2019. YOTELPAD Mammoth offers future guests and buyers the opportunity to stay and 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.
As the first new-build amenitized community on the mountain in more than a decade, YOTELPAD Mammoth will feature 156 efficient PADs (condominiums). With flexible and adaptable spaces, PADs range from 410 to 629 sq ft. The property will also unveil the brand’s newly created DOMO concept with 21 townhomes offering 1,503 sq ft of living space that can sleep up to 10, priced from $1.5 million. As with all YOTEL locations globally, YOTELPAD Mammoth will offer robust community amenities for all ages and attentive service utilizing the latest smart living technologies.
Located in the year-round destination of Mammoth Lakes, Calif., the property will feature a seamless indoor-outdoor experience for owners and guest. The 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. Meanwhile, KOMYUNTI will serve as a multi-generational space, offering 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 homecooked meal with friends and family. Little ones will be plenty occupied with endless activities in dedicated zones for kids and teens. Other amenities in and around MISSION CONTROL (the central lobby area) will include a 24/7 gym, steam room and GRAB+GO light bites. Gear storage, as well as bike storage, will be available to owners seasonally.
YOTELPAD’s signature design concept centers around transformative spaces, including multi-purpose furniture with convertible configurations to maximize interior space along with built-in technology and dynamic lighting. These innovative layouts will be complemented by a modern minimalistic design and the newest technologies, including the YOTEL brand’s signature adjustable SmartBeds and adjustable mood lighting, a smart TV, multi-power points and easy connectivity for PAD guests. 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. 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.
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. 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 Amazon™ lockers.
“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. 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,” said Gary Raymond, Managing Director, Replay Resorts. “We have been developing this concept with YOTEL for a number of years. 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.”
Mammoth Mountain is owned by Alterra Mountain Company and is part of the Ikon pass, allowing owners access to 14 of the world's premier four-season resorts. It is one of California’s foremost drive-to mountain resorts and the third most visited ski resort in the US with over 1.1 million skier visits each season, and more than 2 million visitors annually. Mammoth also boasts one of the longest ski seasons in North America. 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.
The opening of YOTELPAD Mammoth 2020/2021 winter will be the third YOTEL property of its kind in the U.S. with both YOTELPAD Miami and Park City opening in 2020. The YOTEL group is also launching four more YOTELPADs with one in Dubai Business Bay and three around the Geneva Lake district, bringing the PAD key count to over 1,100.Download article
