On Sunday, January 28th, the skies opened and dropped five inches of fresh snow on the ill-fated June Mountain, which would close for the season by the end of the day. The slopes were packed with school groups floundering happily in the powder. Local poachers ducked furtively in and out of the trees, quickly shredding up the new snow along with the bases of their boards. The weekend would prove to be one of the busiest of the short and bittersweet season.
