A slew of Mammoth Mountain bigwigs hit June Lake late Tuesday night, Nov. 5 to roll out an ambitious new plan for June Mountain Ski Area that they say will save the ailing ski area â and to set a new industry precedent.
âWe are going to offer âKids Under 12 Ski Free,ââ MMSA Chief Operating Officer Greg Dallas told approximately 120 people crowded into the community center in June Lake. âThatâs a huge deal. No one else is doing this. Most places there are restrictions, there are asterisks in the fine print.â
Donna McMullen, a recent retiree from the Bishop Bureau of Land Management Field Office, received prestigious recognition at the annual California On Location Awards held Nov. 3 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
She has spent many years handling filming permits for projects in Inyo and Mono counties on BLM-managed lands, and for her efforts, has been named âFederal Employee of the Year.â
During her time with the Bishop BLM office, according to Inyo County Film Commissioner Chris Langley, McMullen earned the respect and affection of hundreds of filmmakers.
