Mammoth CEO: ‘Irresponsible of me to have not faced facts sooner’

July 5, 2012

Rusty Gregory knows people are not happy with him for closing June Mountain.
In the end, facing a loss of an average of $1.5 million a year, that wasn’t enough to stop him.
“Personally, I’m incredibly disappointed as well,” he said. “I realize that the people in June are shocked and very disappointed, and angry with me. But the idea of subsidizing June without a view of an end result is not sustainable.”
He also said skier visits have gone from an average of 80,000 per season to 45,000 last season.

After the wind died down on June 25, action at South Lake returned to a wide open bite for most anglers with limits the rule. It was surprisingly quiet up at the lake until Thursday when folks started showing up in force to take advantage of the excellent fishing.
