Next Tuesday, Mammoth Mountain CEO Rusty Gregory will present the June Mountain Ski Area operating and marketing plan at a public meeting of the June Lake Citizens Advisory Committee. Community members say they are eager to hear details. Meanwhile, Abigail Ross at June Mountain said around six inches of snow now sits on the slopes at June.
Earlier this month, Mammoth Mountain Administrative Officer, Ron Cohen, had said the company purchased new computers and new communication equipment for June Mountain and had gone to work on lifts and runs to get them ready for testing and certification prior to the re-opening of the Mountain this season. Cohen said the total investment in the past year adds up to around $1 million. Officials had said June Mountain will re-open December 14th, weather permitting.
Cohen had said that this season Mammoth Mountain would take a “much stronger approach to marketing both ski areas.” He said new Chief Marketing Officer, Erik Forsell, has June Mountain on his short list of priorities.
Ski Area officials talk about an emphasis on family friendliness at June Mountain. Abigail Ross pointed to the new policy of kids 12 and under skiing for free and other special deals. Rusty Gregory will talk details at that community meeting Tuesday, November 5th at 7pm at the Community Center.
And, the day after that meeting, Gregory and CAO Ron Cohen will sit down with Mammoth Mayor Rick Wood, Councilwoman Jo Bacon and Town Manager Dan Holler for a meeting of the Ski Area/ Town of Mammoth Liaison Committee.
On their agenda – Economic Development, Zoning Code Update, Fee review, TBID implementation and other items. This meeting takes place Wednesday, November 6th, from 2:30pm to 4:30pm in the Town’s Main Conference Room.
