Storm Total – 130″+ | Season Total – 234″
Apparently there are exceptions to Doug Coombs’ rule: “there is no such thing as too much snow.” The exception being June Mountain this week after the resort received in excess of 130″ of new snow– or so the report indicates. As such, they are currently CLOSED to all skiing and riding as an avalanche warning and winter storm warning remain in effect (*see below).
“Sorry folks, but we will remain closed today, Tuesday, February 5. We have received over 10ft of new snow at the J2 weather plot since Saturday and today’s forecast is calling for strong winds and another 3-10″. Lift, Patrol, Maintenance, Cat and Snow Removal Crews are hard at work preparing for tomorrow. Stay safe out there.”
