This isn't meant to be a picture thread but I just can't help opening with this.

Image

So why did you ride/ski June Mtn. my friends? We might as well have another thread dedicated to June's closing. No poll here, just from the heart, feelings please.

Image

I guess the reason I ride June is because I fell in love with the place in the early 2000's and knew that this is where I wanted to retire. I was lucky enough to be able to buy a place up here and then unlucky enough to lose my job in 2009. I made ends meet for a couple of years and now have my life in June dialed in.

I'll be riding Mammoth next year for sure. Weekdays and off the beaten track on the weekends. I'm not going to cash in my MVP because June is closed. That would make no sense at all for me.

I've been running up and down the trail to Walker Lake to get into shape. Well. not really running.

I think this pic should be titled "Why June Mtn closed". It really does tell the whole story, doesn't it?

Or is it advertising? I really don't put titles to my pictures SnS.

I'm sure some of the kids in June would argue with you.

I'm a hardboot snowboarder, so June was perfect for my craft. Perfectly groomed Gunsmoke, Schatzi and Matterhorn were always tops in my book. :cry:

I saw you guys every weekend and in between. And at the Tiger Bar afterwards. June is/was the best carving mountain ever.

Because sometimes we would be shoveling snow off the deck way past midnight. We would know that the next morning was going to be epic.
