Absolutely. Much of the time nothing on the face below the lodge is skiable. Like most of the past 4 seasons.
The question posed by NM is one of June's obstacles to success. Marketing June to beginners and families makes perfect sense. But that ancient J1 chair can be off-putting to newbies.
Dave McCoy had the QMC tram installed in the 1980's to take skiers up and down the face of June, but unfortunately the the Yan design was flawed and it was removed after the 1995 accident at Whistler.
Putting a modern lift there should be a priority but June's skier visits have been so low that it's hard to justify the cost. Nonetheless, after the controversy of June being closed during 2012-13, MMSA announced a plan to put in a new lower lift and beef up June's snowmaking. However, the money to do that must come from MMSA operating income, and we all know that has been way down the past two seasons.
