Major Resort Hotel to Rise in Mammoth Lakes

Untitled Document: "Mammoth Lakes is about to get a different kind of lift.
Developers hoping to turn the homey Eastern Sierra town into an upscale ski resort said Wednesday that construction of the area's first luxury hotel would begin with the spring snowmelt.
Intrawest Corp., a Canadian developer that has spent the last 15 years working to remake Mammoth, said it would erect a 230-room, $140-million Westin hotel. It is scheduled to open in the spring of 2007.
Dubbed the Westin Monache, the hotel would be the largest in town and the first to bear the nameplate of an upscale hostelry. It is the centerpiece of Intrawest's planned $1-billion makeover of Mammoth.
'The arrival of the first international hotel brand is a very significant step for Mammoth to be recognized as a world-class destination,' said Peter Cowley, Intrawest's vice president of lodging development."

Who wants to buy a condo within the lava flow of a live volcano. Those of us who live in the Clovis/Fresno, Ca area have felt a few of the earthquakes from the Mammoth Mtn. Volacano.

Here are some diagrams from the USGS. Click on them for a larger view. The First one shows the direction of lava flow, which is right towards this proposed resort. The second shows the areas to be affected by the ash.
