What if you held a winter festival and the weather gods filled the land with snow? That’s the fortunate and unfamiliar situation June Lake finds itself in this year. The June Lake Winter Festival is scheduled for Feb. 27, with base depths on the mountain at 3 feet or better.
The family friendly alpine town just north of Mammoth Lakes has received 138 inches since November, payback after several disappointing winters where there was barely enough slush to make a snow ball. This year, the various snow-sculpting competitions, the winter triathlon and other events will find playing fields with plenty of white stuff.
