Don't forget: Mammoth Mountain Ski Area CEO Rusty Gregory and June Mountain Ski Area general manager Carl Williams will be in June Lake on Tuesday, Nov. 5, at the June Lake Community Center at 7 p.m. to talk to the community about new plans for re-opening June Mountain this year.
The meeting is a regular meeting of the June Lake Citizenâ€™s Advisory Committee. The meeting is open to the public.
The smoke in the air right now is from a prescribed burn near Bald Mountain north of Mammoth Lakes and east of U.S. 395, according to the Inyo National Forest. The burning operation is expected to last for a few more days, weather and wind permitting, forest officials said. If the smoke in nearby communities gets too bad, they have a smoke policy that is supposed to require them to pull back from burning more acreage.
Call 760-872-8211 for smoke information.
The Inyo National Forest has closed the Reds Meadow Valley Road for the winter season, officials said.
The Reds Meadow Valley Road is closed after the first accumulating snowfall each year or on Oct. 31 if no snow or ice events have occurred. Snow removal is discontinued after Oct. 15.
All campgrounds and restrooms in the Reds Meadow Valley are closed for the season. The gate at Minaret Vista is locked.
For more information, please call the Mammoth Lakes Welcome Center at (760) 924-5500 or visit the Welcome Center at 2510 Hwy 203 next to the Mammoth Ranger Station.
