Kids ski free and this no gimmick! The town of June Lake is a charming place (try the Tiger Bar, Carson Peak Inn, Double Eagle, Trout Town Joe, Ernie's Ski Rental all Awseome!!!)
None in my opinion
Spent the week between Christmas and New Years at June Mountain and it was a great experience. The staff are some of the best I've ever dealt with. Kids 12 and under ski for free and this is no gimmick. You don't have to buy an adult pass for each free kid or anything like that. We enrolled our kids in ski school almost every day and the instructors were awesome. The kids loved them all and on several days my kids essentially got private lessons as the instructors separated the kids by skill level and took them up the lift. Can't say enough about the staff. Mother Nature has not been kind to skiers so far this year in the west but when that changes we will be returning to June Mountain.
