Welcome to Mammoth Lakes California
Dennis PhillipsWhen I moved to Mammoth in 1972 Tiny Buster's market was the only grocer in town, Pea Soup Andersen's had just opened in what would become the Polo Outlet Store, gasoline was 36 cents a gallon and a season's pass cost about $200. There were just 17 condo projects in town--now there are nearly 100--and lots were selling for $5,000.
I grew up in the Chicago suburb of Hinsdale, Illinois and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English literature at the University of Oregon and Portland State University. Faced with the existential crisis of graduating, I bought a tent, stuffed my possessions into a 1960 Saab and drove to Yosemite Valley to become a rock climber.
Two summers later a freak early November snowstorm collapsed my tent and I migrated around the Sierra to learn to ski. I've been in Mammoth ever since...
Wayne CaddellOriginally from Massachusetts and shortly after graduating from Northeastern University in Boston, Wayne moved to Southern California with his family. That same year, friends invited them to go skiing at Mammoth Mountain. Wow! They thought they had "died and gone to heaven." They were used to skiing on 6" of ice in 8° temperatures in Western Massachusetts and Vermont. This visit started a long time love affair with Mammoth that continues today.
Eventually, they quit their jobs, moved to Mammoth and started their High Sierra real estate careers. They have never looked back. They cannot imagine living in a more beautiful place and living amongst some of the nicest people you could ever meet. It has been a dream come true for them.
Wayne enjoys selling real estate and some of his closest friends were met from selling them real estate...
