June Mountain, the once-popular ski area that is about 30 miles beyond Mammoth up highway 395 in the Eastern Sierra, did not open this past winter. But June will be back later this year, outdoors writer Pete Thomas reports.
On Tuesday Carl Williams, general manager at June, stated: "We couldn’t be more pleased to announce that June Mountain will be back in operation for the 2013-14 season.
"Next winter we look forward to bringing skiers and snowboarders a great on-mountain experience while also planning for June’s future, including the possibility of a new lift and enhanced snowmaking."
There were few details in the news release as a long-term strategic plan for June has yet to be finalized.
Mammoth Mountain itself is still open to skiers and snowboarders for the current season — runs will be operating at least until Memorial Day.
