I love June Mountain. It's a really nice resort. Not too big, not too crowded - it's just right! Good variety of slopes - everything from beginner to advanced. It's got something for everyone. And because it's close to the more popular Mammoth, it never gets too crowded. They also have a great Student Season Pass that goes for something like $150. The crowd is pretty young - lots of college students. And another bonus is that it has a beautiful view of June Lake and surroundings.

I would say the après-ski is good but not extraordinary. Check out The Tiger Café (or El Tigre as we liked to call it). Some good places to stay are the Big Rock cabins, and we rented out cabins at the Interlaken condos - the hot tubs are great! There are a bunch of hot springs in the area too, but it's best to scope them out in the daylight because some of them are tricky to find at night.

Overall this is a really fun mountain, with nice terrain and a great atmosphere! A good alternative to Mammoth, and much more affordable.
