June Mountain, which is owned by Mammoth Mountain, has long been operating at a deficit, and the closure had “devastating impact” on local residents and businesses, according to Connie Black, an owner of the Double Eagle Resort and Spa, which employs both full-time and seasonal staff, many of whom suffered layoffs.
