FWIW the June Mountain Express was subsidized by June Mountain Ski Area.

It may have been subsidized by June Mtn. but it wasn't free to ride. It was $5.00 one way from Trout Town Joe's to Mammoth or $5.50 from June Mtn.

The employee shuttle you could always hop on for free if there was room.

Sheesh, there was some serious mis-quoting in last week's Sheet. Here's the much more positive news:

United, not divided

Majority of June Lake stands together

FWIW I think the taxpayers of Mono County should go to these meetings and ask some questions...

  1. The June Mountain Express required no taxpayer subsidies in previous years, so why now?
  2. Would its purpose be to help tourists spend the day away from June Lake Village?
  3. If so, who the heck thinks that would help re-open June Mountain?
  4. Where do the skis go on small buses that have never had ski racks?
  5. What is the frequency (= convenience)?
  6. How many more buses will run on Saturday than Sunday? (Remember, a family of skiers with the kids out of school for the weekend is NOT going to check out of their lodging on Sunday morning, go skiing, then return to June.)
  7. Do you think this is free money?

A bit off topic but how does a guy get elected as a Supervisor with a name like "Hap Hazard"? :o

His real first name is Duane. He's an ex-Mono County Sheriff deputy.

You'd want a nickname, too with that first name! :D (I say that with all respect since he's a friend!)

There has GOT to be a good story behind his nickname and how he got it then; while reading some of the June related stories I had to point out to my wife there was a supervisor named Hap Hazard. As for the first name Duane - isn't 'The Rock's' first name Duane? Maybe that is the going trend to get a nickname if your first name is Duane!

“There are two plans being requested, he said. The first is a winter plan, which some have described as the “non-operating plan” but which Gregory described as the “plan for operations in the case of suspended operations.”


LOL...

I think Sup Bauer has a good point that the focus should be reopening June Mountain, but I also think Connie Black of Double Eagle should be commended for her efforts to come up with ideas that make them independent of the mountain as well. At least it seems like people care and are taking part in the process.

Anyone know anything about this?:
Supervisor Vikki Bauer added on Tuesday that MMSA’s first right of refusal on the Rodeo Grounds property expires in March, but Gregory stated that the first right of refusal does not have an expiration date.

Well, since there isn't much hockey being played in the NHL you ought to try and get some local hockey players to play in a charity game of Pond Hockey. I'd bet a lot of those guys have never played on a pond. (Anaheim's arena is no longer even CALLED the pond.)

^I'd wager my entire bank account that most of the players in the NHL have played pond hockey. I like your way of thinking Grumpy.

A Sierra Wave article from 10/5:

June Lake works on improvements for winter

A community survey asked business owners and residents about a shuttle between June Lake and Mammoth Lakes – times and drop off places. Simpson said he and others are in talks with all shuttle companies including Mammoth Mountain Ski Area and Eastern Sierra Transit Authority. He said $20,000 of the funding is earmarked for transit once details are available through the community survey.

^ Well there you go...now get 'er done!
