Uncrowded ski area with spectacular views

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. ...

Nice place to learn or take lessons

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.

Great groomed runs

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.
