Located near Yosemite National Park, June Mountain is ideal for families — 35 percent of the terrain is dedicated to beginners. Private lessons and discounted rentals are available, as are three terrain parks: Mambo Playground Chair J2, Suprise’s Fun Zone Chair J2 and Bucky’s Adventure Zone. Three restaurants are located onsite, too.
Those who like June Mountain should consider a Cali4nia Pass, which allows them to ski four mountains — Snow Summit, Bear Mountain and Mammoth Mountain (and June Mountain) — for one price. All four resorts are owned by Mammoth Mountain Ski Area.
