“Switzerland of California”
Visit the beautiful old-fashioned retreat and mountain hideaway of June Lake, located at the base of Carson Peak in the heart of the Sierras. The unsurpassed beauty of June Lake delights outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers with groves of Aspens, willow lined meadows and hills surrounded by high mountain peaks. June Lake is perfectly placed with Yosemite National Park just to the North and Mammoth Mountain to the South.
June Lake consists of two ski areas, Rainbow Mountain and June Mountain connected by Rainbow Ridge. June Mountain Ski Resort has terrain for all abilities of skiing, with snowmobiling, cross country skiing, snow shoeing, sledding, ice climbing and ice skating. The mountains of June Lake welcome you with brilliant views of nearby Mammoth Mountain.
June Lake is a beautiful town in any season and the summer months offer great outdoor activities. With four scenic lakes (June, Gull, Silver and Grant), the area is world-famous for excellent trout fishing. Explore the many backcountry trails, go mountaineering, mountain biking or climbing. Then take to the water of the cool, crystal clear lakes to enjoy the many watersports available. June Lakes turns picture perfect in the fall as the many aspens turn from green to gold with the approaching winter.
For something different, visit the nearby Bodie Ghost Town, California’s official state gold rush ghost town. Only 100 buildings remain standing in a state of decay.
June Lake never disappoints.
