JUNE MOUNTAIN SKI RESORT
Just a half hour north of Mammoth is a gem of a winter resort that
is earning a reputation for enhanced terrain. June
Mountain ski resort is smaller and more intimate than its sister mountain
Mammoth Mountain down the road, but the scenery and the atmosphere are unsurpassed.
As you climb to the elevation, you can look out over spectacular
Mono Lake, volcanic craters, and the peaks of Yosemite and a valley
straight off the Swiss Alps.
To get to the base of June, you must ride up in a chairlift to get to the main lodge chalet.
At 7545ft it is a great starting point. This European
style lodge features a nice sundeck, rentals, repair and is the
starting point for your fun at June Mountain elevation, 10,135 ft. at the top.
June Mountain is a family mountain, geared for all levels and strikes a balance in families who have skiers and snowboarders. Steep runs for the advanced are intertwined with wide open groomers for the intermediate so that all levels can ski and ride together, and then take turn offs to cater to their expertise. Set up for soaking up the sun,
the scene and the breathtaking views, the whole family will enjoy a few days at June Mountain.
June Mountain lodging tends to be a bit "rustic". Most of our guests who are planning on putting in a few days at June, end up staying in Mammoth, as the drive is only about 30 minutes. Mammoth condos tend to offer a wider variety of choices that the hotels and rentals that seem to be caught in a time warp at June Lake.
June Mountain Snowboard Park
June Mountain continues to build snowboard features including steep jumps, pipes, rails and boxes to make riding a whole mountain experience, and not just geared to a terrain park. June welcomes snowboarders without attitude. Boarders can head to the all new JM2 Unbound Terrain parks on Schatzi
and Sunrise, while powder hounds can wake up early to ski The Face.
Led by famed park designer Eric Rosenwald,
"JM2" is expanding. Look for the pros like Matt Hammer,
Sarah Burke and Tanner Hall in JM2's Superpipe and two parks. Fewer
people and June Lake's smaller town means that JM2 has fast become
the underground destination.
