On this morning's June dump alert: :clap:

Face Time

Face time is now, and we're not talking about chatting with Grandma on your iPhone, we're talking about THE Face. The cheers and "whoop whoops" from J1 this morning were some of the best sounds in the world. Tomorrow we expect to pop the top with amazing snow around 4, 6, & 7 areas. Forecast for MLK weekend is looking sweet with mostly sunny skies Saturday-Monday with 7 lifts spinning and 100% of the mountain open.

Skied at June yesterday, since I knew Mammoth was going to be a zoo. Got there around 815 and the line for J1 was down the steps. When I left around 1130 it was still down the steps. But once you got up on top, no lines like usual. I guess J7 was open for an hour on Friday, but there were still plenty of fresh turns to be had. The Face was filled in nicely and nice soft packed powder all the way down to the parking lot. The lot was completely full and cars were parking out on the highway. Came back and skied at Mammoth in the afternoon with the kids when the lines were more managable. Looking forward to the next storm!

I warned my daughter about waiting to get to June to late so when she went on Sunday she got there about 7:45 a.m. and got front row parking and no line for the chair.

Best guesses for winds at June on Fri/Sat? Thinking of making a run up early Friday to catch late morning on, and then first half of the day Saturday. I'd be blowing off some stuff that I shouldn't blow off, but snow. Can't get a bead on how high the risk of weather holds is going to be.

Well the NWS is calling from 14 to 22 mph winds Friday and Saturday with snow falling throughout the weekend. You know what you want and your ability. Make the call.

Wow, thanks Cheaps. June hasn't looked so good in years.

I just called 888GJUNEMTN to ask a question and got no answer after pressing 4. It rang until it disconnected me. I called back and pressed 1 and was told the hold time is 51 minutes.

bunny that.

Did you know that Mt. Wood is the highest peak in the June Lake Loop?

We headed over to June today, to avoid the Mammoth winds. While J7 and J4 never opened do to the aforementioned wind, we hot lapped all the J4 runs from J6. I also got in my first face runs since the late 60's. All in all, a super fun day, the wind was resetting the snow, and as usual, there were very few people making tracks. Mandatory stop at JLB to take the edge off for the ride back to Mammoth.
