I am so happy to hear that one of my favorite ski destinations is celebrating 60 years and that June Mountain will be reopening this season. With so much going on in Mammoth this year, it makes me wish we had purchased season tickets. Regardless, we will definitely be spending a lot of time in the Eastern Sierra when the snow starts to fall…Let the condo searching begin.

In addition to the reopening of June Mountain, Mammoth’s winter air service now includes L.A., San Diego, San Francisco and Orange County. The mountain will also be a training ground for U.S. Freeskiing and U.S. snowboard teams, which means that youngsters heading to the mountain have a chance to see some amazing athletes in action – it also means that Unbound and Adventure Zones will be in top form.

Guests will have an enhanced experience at the Mammoth Mountain Inn as well as new culinary adventures. Both foodies and winter sports enthusiasts alike are treated to an array of new options including celebrated chef Mark Estee’s CAMPO restaurant in The Village at Mammoth. Estee’s original CAMPO, located in Reno, was recently named one of Esquire’s best new restaurants in America. The Lakefront Restaurant has a new chef as well and has partnered with local, organic farms to offer a new seasonal menu.

Late-night entertainment will also be renewed with the opening of the Underground Lounge. Music is the focal point of the Lounge, which accommodates a live music venue along with a bar, lounge, and VIP area. A contemporary menu features signature cocktails and Provencal comfort food highlighted by “tappatizers,” Chef Frederic Pierrel’s unique blend of tapas and appetizers.
