June Mountain to close
June Mountain, under the same ownership as Mammoth Mountain in California and a scenic 30 minute drive away, was covered by the Mammoth lift pass. Sadly, it has been announced that June will not open this winter. We’re not surprised because the last time we skied June there were only six skiers on the mountain – they were almost outnumbered by lifties.
Mammoth bought June Mountain in 1986 with the idea of eventually connecting the two. But for a variety of reasons that hasn’t happened and Rusty Gregory, Mammoth Mountain Ski Area Chairman and CEO said ‘June has operated at an annual deficit each year since its purchase in 1986.’
