New trails for Cross-country Skiing: Additionally, the Double Eagle Resort & Spa just announced that they have made the decision to invest in snow grooming equipment in order to offer enhanced (and free!) cross-country skiing opportunities around the Loop to locals and guests this winter.
The Double Eagle Resort owners have submitted a request to the US Forest Service (USFS) to access the Silver Lake Meadow along with a request to groom the USFS-owned Rodeo Grounds and the area that extends from the June Lake Junction toward June Lake campground and North Shore Drive.
“Double Eagle Resort is excited about the opportunity to provide residents and guests with a groomed Nordic skiing option in the June Lake Loop, free of charge. We have our fingers crossed that Mother Nature will cooperate to allow these trails to be available all winter long and well into the spring,” said Ralph Lockhart of the Double Eagle Resort & Spa.
Approvals are already in place from Mono County to groom the portion of the Silver Lake Meadow which the Double Eagle owns. These trail grooming plans will add to the excellent Nordic skiing options that are available in the Eastern Sierra.

And I don't think June is a big nordic skier destination...
The movie tonight was awesome. Charles Bickford in a 1929 movie shot in Bodie pre fire. And the walk home was filled with stars and a moon that's almost full.
The soon to be official County Supervisor said that another committee is coming soon, headed by Carl Williams, June Mountain’s former manager. That group will examine how the community can help make June Mountain successful, how the mountain should be run. Alpers said they will possibly visit some ski areas in the East which are about the size of June Mountain and are very successful. The local people may examine those ski areas’ balance sheets and operation plans.
Alpers said one vision is to look at Mammoth and June Mountains as a regional facility not June Mountain as an overflow for Mammoth. Alpers said, “June can cater to young families and develop customers for many years.” In short, he said, “We’re looking for a new way to do business.”
