J5 – June Mountain, CA

This Riblet is actually the newest of five double chairs built at June Mountain but was abandoned around 2008.
There was a mid-station that once served beginner skiers just below these crazy angled towers.
Fixed return bullwheel up top with a Yan operator house.
Top station overview.
The breakover towers and lift line.
Lower part of the line and former middle station.
Side view of the top four towers.
Overhead drive with counterweight tensioning.

    They should replace this with a fixed grip quad or six that runs up to where the midstation was.

      I’d run a high speed six pack all the way to the top of the ridge, with a midstation at the old midstation point.

        And J-1 would be replaced with a gondola

        they don’t need a high speed lift because its expert terrain, but they should put a gondola here for foot traffic to the chalet and beginner skiers, and keep j1+run it a little faster
