Watch 60 seconds of dead calm at June Lake [Video]

December 07, 2012|By Christopher Reynolds

Here’s a video to show you what this especially quiet winter is going to look like at June Lake, the handsome little mountain community about 20 miles north of Mammoth Mountain.

Not that June Lake is ever mistaken for Times Square. But this winter, the hamlet’s June Mountain ski slope will be closed, a decision made when its owners (the proprietors of Mammoth Mountain) were facing tight money earlier this year. I shot this video on a visit in early November.

The town’s merchants, eager to preserve some tourist traffic, are promising several new winter features. And June Mountain is supposed to reopen for the winter of 2013-14.

As for Mammoth Mountain? Plenty of action there. And not coincidentally, plenty of snow – some 115 inches this season, as of Friday. Here’s the story on why that’s such a relief to people there.
