With their exposed timbers and peaked roofs, these four-story condo buildings at the epicenter of Mammoth's dining and nightlife scene pay homage to Alpine style. Units have gas fireplaces, kitchens or kitchenettes, high-speed Internet access, DVD players, slate-tile bathroom floors, and comfortable furnishings. There's daily maid service. The decor is a bit sterile, but there are high-end details like granite counters. You won't have to drive anywhere: the buildings are
connected by a ground-floor pedestrian mall, to shops, restaurants, bars, and—best of all—a gondola (from November through mid-April) that whisks you right from the Village to the mountain.
