It’s official: June Mountain is back.
The modest ski and snowboard destination that Mammoth Mountain management closed to save money last winter is to reopen in 2013-14, officials said Tuesday, confirming reports last fall that the family-friendly venue would resume full winter operations.
June’s lifts will welcome skiers and snowboarders beginning mid-December 2013, officials say.
“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,” June Mountain general manager Carl Williams said in a release.
The resort says it will continue to focus on families and entry-level skiers and snowboarders.
The news comes as a relief to business owners in June Lake, who are completing their first winter in decades without a ski operation.
