Curious if anyone knows anything about June Lakes in regards to immediate backcountry? The resort (one which I have never heard of before I started researching the Eastern Sierras) says that there is great terrain accessible from their slopes. But I was wondering about getting a little deeper. Looking for terrain that isn't too far driving, backyard kind of stuff. The skiing in the proximity of June Lakes looks super great.
I'm planning a big road trip starting the end of October. On my hunt for a home for the winter. June Lakes seems pretty rad, but I know so little of it, or Mammoth for that matter. Don't need to know detailed stuff about it, more just curious about the general scene.
