it still doesn't make any sense. they should just talk to the guy that owns the lake to get some water. they blow the snow and it just goes back to the lake anyways when it melts so there really is no water used at the end of the day.

Sounds like you have bought into the Bear Mt. marketing BS. No water loss? even through you have evaporation, soil absorption and wind blow? Not to mention the energy usage and expense of pumping water uphill. It would be way better for them if they could find local wells.

I understood that June's snowmaking water comes from the pond up the hill east of J3. Pumping it up from the lakes in the down Loop would be economically ill-advised.

the mountain doesn't make any money anyways so they should just do so it doesn't close again.

^^Is this person what you call a troll? Seems to me that he/she is just trolling for a response and isn't very informed at all.

It's great that Ed Roski, Tim Alpers and Rusty Gregory are working to improve the ski hill, the Rodeo Grounds, Down Canyon and the Village. I hope the community will work with them and not make anything difficult.

Hopefully June will get a bunch of snow and they can get the whole place opened. I'll be back and forth this winter and want to get some time on my favorite runs at June.

I remember sitting in a meeting before June reopened and Rusty promised a replacement for J1 by the 2016-2017 season. I really wanted to believe that and so many residents of June just didn't buy it at all.

From what Dallas was saying at the CAC meeting it doesn't look like that's going to happen any time soon.

"Another question: Does the current Chair 1 provide the service capacity needed for the ski area?

“No. But at what service level do we think Chair 1 is not good enough? President’s weekend it isn’t good enough. But we have the same situation over at Mammoth,” Dallas said. “We don’t build ski resorts for Sundays, so to speak.”

Dallas affirmed several times throughout the meeting that Chair 1 needs to be a gondola, although he admitted there is still internal debate on the issue.

Williams also chimed in. “We know there are some people who just won’t ride Chair 1. But I don’t think the lift alone is going to solve the issue,” he said. “At the end of the day, it’s about the snow.”

Where is the grooming report hiding on the new site? I'm having a hard time figuring out what is actually open now.

Any firsthand reports from June? Coming up this weekend and thinking of heading to June for a day to avoid the MM crowds.

Yes, calisnow went there this past Tuesday and posted this on Facebook, which I in turn posted in the Real Condition Reports 14-15 thread for him.

A buddy talked me into going to June today and I'm glad I did. The conditions were fantastic - don't ask me why. Untouched powder, solid coverage, silky groomers - and of course no people. Huge improvement over the Mammoth ice rink.

Can you ski/ride June top to bottom right now, or is a download of chair 1 currently required?
