Comments by Kelli Lynn Hargrove/

June Mountain is back open for business! As of December 14, 2013, the resort is back in action after a one year reprieve. As a celebration of it’s re-opening, June Resort is offering free— you heard me, free— riding to all children under 12 for the entire season. The resort is focusing on new riders and families, upping the ante on their free riding by adding packages for new riders that include equipment, lift tickets, lessons; all at a discount.

June Lake, Calif. – June Mountain announced today that winter operations will resume on Dec. 14, setting an opening day for the Eastern Sierra resort, following its one year closure.

New for this year, June will offer free skiing and riding for children 12 and under, every day, all season long. The move comes as the resort focuses on the beginner and intermediate experience that generations of families from California and beyond have come to know and appreciate. The resort will also offer first time beginner packages, including equipment, lift tickets and three hour lessons, for substantial discounts.

“Personally, and I think I can speak for the June Lake community, in saying that we’re really excited to see those lifts turn again,” said Carl Williams, June Mountain’s General Manager.“ Visitors are going to notice a couple changes, but we’re really focusing on what has always made June a special place and that’s the family experience. We have terrain for all abilities and some really great parks, but June’s charm is its accessibility. This a great place to learn, and to really be comfortable and have fun while you’re doing it.”

Located 20 miles north of sister resort, Mammoth Mountain, June’s 500 skiable acres are 80 percent beginner and intermediate, offering a good variety of terrain for all abilities. June Mountain’s progression parks are the perfect introduction to freestyle, with features that ‘progress’ in size, helping skiers and snowboarders gain confidence and ability.

Additional updates, including upgrades to Chair 1 and June Mountain’s snow making infrastructure, are still in the planning phases, with additional information expected to be made available following the opening.
