J1 – June Mountain, CA

Other than from 1986-1996, the J1 double chair has served as the sole access means to June Mountain since 1961.
The bottom terminal is a Yan retrofit, one of four on June Mountain’s double chairs.
The steep lift line up The Face.
Fixed top bullwheel unloading at the Chalet.

The epic breakover.
This lift has 100 percent downloading capacity for summer visitors, low snow periods and beginner skiers.
