    I would think they would still run J5 for the beginners and put snowmaking. Why was it abandoned? Bad snow or little use?

      Little use. In general, June has a tendency to lose money every year, and Mammoth has traditionally kept it open as a courtesy to the locals.

    If the infrastructure was improved I feel it could turn a profit, but mammoth never made the investment.
    Also they tried to close it one year 2013/14 i think

      For years they’ve tried to find the water to justify upgrading J1, but to no avail. And they closed it for 2012/13.

    Skied June today, it’s a nice mountain, great views of the Sierras and Mono Lake. Seems worthy of upgrading, only 20 minutes north of Mammoth, it could take some of the crowds. I hope they find the money to upgrade J1, very slow and you have to carry your skis down.

      Without additional water for snowmaking, Alterra is not going to dump money into lift upgrades at a ski area with already questionable economics.

      To my understanding, Dave McCoy bought June mountain with the hopes of making it a premium ski experience, similar to Deer Valley. However, people who go to Mammoth only want to ski Mammoth. It suffers from the same problem that Moonlight Basin and The Canyons did, not top of mind to the people who visit the area.
