Heated Driveway

A lot of the large homes in Mountain Village use a lot of extra energy, but that clear and dry driveway must be nice!

That it must. No risk of falling and breaking a leg there.

The photo is idyllic! Lovely composition.

The run I ski at Mammoth is way to the South along the edge where there are beautiful, super-sized homes too. And usually, they are empty. :(

That cracks me up, how going "green" is such a buzz word in mountain communities, but spending $$$/day to melt driveways using the electrical grid is silently unspoken and pushed aside...yet someone using regular Christmas bulbs instead of LEDs would receive a local newpaper story about wasting energy. Good observation, Lisa!

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh lovely clean bright Colorado snow!

Ice or not, that is a gorgeous home! And a gorgeous photograph - I'd say calender worthy!

A heated driveway? Wow. And that's just a single home? Double wow.

Heated driveway? Nice way to go if you can afford it...

Oh my gosh, this is a home?? I thought it was a hotel. Amazing.

I'm always amazed by people that have these.

I'm not usually prone to fits of jealousy, but looking at that driveway, I could be!

It is true! It is a single home. There are tons of houses this large and larger in Mountain Village. At one time someone told me that this was Dan Quayle's house, but I'm not sure if that's true. The sad thing is that homes like these are empty most of the year, only used during the owner's vacations.

What a luxury! That is a beautiful home.

Heated driveway? I thought you were being sarky... I don't have a heated house. Clearly I missed my vocation, should have married a Colorado guy with oodles of money.
