Firstly, thanky doogiedoc!Johnnyzoo, you're in for the time of your life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We spent 7 days there just after a 120" dump (2 days continuous), 6 BLUE skies, great weather, 1 cold, snowing but still very skiable.
It definitely feels different from any other place I've been to, maybe it's the CA aura? b The trees, people, service, all different in the mos positive way.
Fave runs: Dave's to GoldHill to Quicksilver, and Cornice to Stump Alley. The runs off the Juniper lift are way too lame, spend as little time there as possible. The runs off the easternmost section, up and behind, are quite nice also, and a great place for light lunch.
Spend Saturday or Sunday or any snowy, windy day at June, small but ok for 1 day.
