Elevate Your Mountain Experience: Introducing Limelight Residences Mammoth

Escape to the majestic beauty of Mammoth Mountain's snow-capped peaks and indulge in luxurious mountain living at the Limelight Residences Mammoth. Nestled within the heart of the Village at Mammoth, this exclusive collection of 15 high-end residences offers a sophisticated retreat where every detail is meticulously crafted for comfort and convenience.



Immerse Yourself in Snow-capped Beauty at Limelight Residences Mammoth a New Mountain Hospitality Destination With 15 High-end Residences

In 1953, a permit was granted to build the first chair lift on Mammoth Mountain. The grantee was Dave McCoy, a hydrographer for the city of Los Angeles who was bewitched by the majestic beauty of the area—and the fact that this cluster of the Sierra Nevada mountains received steady, ski-friendly drops of snow each year. Add in a record-setting 11,053-foot elevation and more than 3,500 acres of terrain well-suited for skiing, and McCoy was convinced he’d found another outdoor California playground.

Seventy years later, Dave McCoy’s vision has been realized, and then some. Head to the Village at Mammoth, a charming town center that consists of strollable collection of boutiques, galleries and eateries, glowing after dark from twinkling lights strung across the shops. Nearby, just steps from the gondola is the new focal point for luxury hospitality, which will include 15 new residences tucked within the Limelight Mammoth Hotel, both coming in 2025.

The 149-room Limelight and the exclusive collection of residences called the Limelight Residences Mammoth, are the work of Aspen Hospitality, both a developer and operator of well-styled retreats in well-heeled mountain destinations. The Little Nell in Aspen, a 5-star ski-in/ski-out hotel at the base of Aspen Mountain, is the group’s flagship. A comfortable yet high-polished destination decked with the good-living accouterments of the times: Fine cuisine and wine; tailored service; superb skiing and exceptional design. 

It’s a template the group has transposed elsewhere, with its Limelight portfolio including hotels in Aspen, Snowmass, and Denver, Colorado and Ketchum, Idaho. Each Limelight property is a hub for connection and community: From skiing to art museums, and from mountain biking to local cultural and sporting events. At Mammoth, Aspen has teamed with WATG—a design firm with offices from Los Angeles to Shanghai, and known for global hospitality destinations—and interior design firm HBA.

“This marks an exciting chapter for effortlessly refined living in Mammoth,” describes Alinio Azevedo, CEO of Aspen Hospitality.

Limelight Residences Mammoth offers 2- to 5- bedroom floor plans—with footprints ranging from 1,322 square feet to more than 3,400 square feet. You’ll step into elevators specially reserved for owners, and alight into airy, contemporary spaces designed around the majestic natural beauty of the mountains. Panoramas of vast skies and brush-stroked peaks pour in through floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass. Notable is the rush of natural light everywhere you turn, since Mammoth is home to more than 300 days of sunlight a year. There are large terraces where you can survey the slopes or enjoy drinks over views of lush forest pines.

Flames dance in the fireplace as you relax in the family room; or move across wide-plank oak floors to the kitchen, where the roomy island invites you and your friends to gather around or dine on its gleaming stone. Discreetly integrated into solid wood cabinetry are gleaming high-end appliances, from a Wolf range and Miele dishwasher to a Sub-Zero refrigerator and a peekaboo wine chiller. Every detail is intentional, notes Aspen Hospitality, and the space has been thoughtfully designed for convenience and luxury.

Floor plans offer all of the comforts of home, including full-size laundry and utility rooms, as well as mudrooms and additional spaces to store your year-round outdoor gear. Bathrooms are big and contemporary, clad in large-scale porcelain tile with quartz slab countertops. Whether soaking in a freestanding tub, gazing over the landscape or standing on a private terrace breathing in fresh mountain air, you feel connected to the place. 

The slopes aside, Mammoth is a year-round destination. Hiking, biking, kayaking and golf are among its big mountain lures, and the Village is host to a calendar of concerts and festivities. But the Limelight will be a destination of its own—an elevated one where you can mingle with others, or tuck away in your own private residence as you wish. 

Dining that’s elegant yet laid-back, plus a sleek lounge are among the features indoors; while steam-topped hot tubs and a heated pool are part of the grounds. On the social front, Limelight will also be home to a members-only club (to which residence owners receive complimentary initiation). This private gathering and ski hub, called the Mammoth Mountain Club, promises to bring an entirely new social offering to the area. 

Members and their guests can mingle around fire pits on the alfresco terrace, the sun-streaked mountains looming in the distance. There will be a ski valet for members, along with private lockers and storage, boot dryers included. Notable will be the well-tailored menu of social events and only-in-Mammoth excursions, whether you visit at the height of ski season or for a mid-summer getaway. 

“These new luxury residences, coupled with the exclusive Mammoth Mountain Club, represent a new era of modern mountain living amid California’s most sought-after mountain setting,” notes Morgan Ball, who is Managing Director of Compass Development Marketing Group, which leads sales and marketing of Limelight Residences Mammoth. 

In this new era, it’s Limelight’s suite of refreshed lifestyle amenities, in concert with the uncluttered and cosmopolitan design of its hotel and residences, that’s taken center stage. An ideal match for those who have been seeking an atmosphere of ease meets elegance in one of California’s most splendid settings.
