Pros: uncrowded, kids ski free

Cons: upload/download to get to the main area

June Mountain can often seem like it's not worth it, since it's hard to justify going there instead of Mammoth, which is just down the road.  It's true that June is smaller and gets less snow, but it also gets fewer people.  I was at June during Christmas Break when the parking lot was completely full, and still found that I had most of the runs to myself.  The only runs that are busy are the beginner runs.  For a couple years now Mammoth Mountain Resorts have let kids 12 and under ski free, and this was of great value to me, with 3 small children.  It was great fun taking my kids skiing and the affordability helped a lot. 

 

A couple other things.  June has one high-speed 4-person lift that goes up to a mountain with groomed intermediate terrain and another high-speed 4-person lift that goes up to a mountain with a mix of blue, black, and double black terrain.  Also, while June doesn't get as much snow as Mammoth, it had good snow the week I was there.  Good coverage, and even 5 inches fresh one morning.  Because there's hardly anyone skiing the harder terrain there were great powder turns to be had all morning.


But Note: June is a great mountain for families once you get to the main area.  It SUCKS getting up to the main area on the long, slow 2 seater lift that goes from the parking lot to the chalet.  It's a bad bottleneck, especially late in the afternoon.  I rode down in the cold and dark with my 6yo because we had to wait for a long time in line just to get down.  It's a big hassle not just for the sake of time, but for crankiness of kids and having to hold your skis on the way down since there's no place to glide off at the end.

Pros: Off the beaten path, not crowded

Cons: limited terrain being a small resort

June mountain is a small resort just down the road from Mammoth, and is actually owned by the same company.  It is great for learning or taking lessons as it is seldom crowded; my wife and myself both signed up for different level group lessons one day and they both ended up being private lessons as we were the only ones in the classes.  Is also fun to ski on a powder.  For southern California skiers it is a nice relief after the crowds at Mammoth and has a little of everything regarding terrain.

Pros: Few crowds, great place for intermediate to beginners

Cons: Near by Mammoth has more terrian. Could use longer intermediate runs.

Skied this area the first time on a holiday weekend when near by Mammoth was crowded. My Mammoth season pass was good there.This place has excellent terrain for teaching beginners and those moving up to intermediate runs.  Lots of open space and few crowds.  Grooming and snow was excellent when I was there. There is some serious expert terrain but most of it is only open when there is a lot of snow. I am not skilled enough to ski it anyway. The views are very scenic, Mono Lake and the eastern Sierra are spectacular.
