The Sharing Economy Opens a Debate with San Diego Housing Rentals

It isn’t hard to find examples how new technology is disrupting traditional methods of conducting business when these examples are right in your backyard. Homeowners are renting their beach abodes for extra money but putting pressure on local communities that lack parking and resources. Recent meetings with The Smart Growth and Land Use Committee offers opportunities to take public testimony and listen to reports to get a better grasp of how the sharing economy works.  The problem is not yet a huge one but certainly could get bigger in the future as the sharing economy grows. Getting a handle on it now makes sense. There are around 1,800 registered owners of rental properties but 3,100 properties available for rent ( as cited by Fox 5 ). This means that officials are unaware of how many people are renting homes and whether or not they are complying with regulations. These rental arrangements are growing in other areas beyond the posh beach communities. Trendy neighborhoo

Running the Slopes at Bear Mountain Ski Resort

Bear Mount Ski Resort located in the rustic village of Big Bear Lake in  California has four mount peaks ranging from 8,000 to 8,500 feet above sea level. Bear Mountain is partnered with Snow Summit just a few steps down the road. One offers a trendy scene and the other night skiing. Together they provide 438 developed acres, 26 lifts and more than 55 runs. Most, 70% of the runs, are intermediate to advanced so you will have a good time if you obtained previous skill. There are enough beginner runs and classes for those who are just starting. In my case, I grew up skiing so after a few hours on the intermediate runs I started to take more of the advanced ones. I avoided the half pike and all the obstacles. All I need is a broken leg! The lodge at the base of the run provides plenty of food and ski services. You can purchase equipment, fix equipment, rent equipment, eat and drink till your hearts content. Their Beach Bar on the sun deck is very popular and draws a crowd of people.
