When the crowds go shopping for sales, we head to the mountains and the snow. Contrary to popular folklore, California has many "snow-designated" areas where Mother Nature is free drop all the snow it wants :)
After a 300 mile (482 km) trek in an EV, we have arrived at our favorite alpine retreat: June Lake, California. Elevation 7,654 feet (2,332m). Nestled in the Eastern Sierra Nevada about 20 minutes from the ski mecca of Mammoth Lakes.
Kiddos are excellent travelers. They slept most of the way. They approve of our vacation choice. They have been here a couple of times before :)
+Dawn Martin we went to Mammoth this morning to top off for the weekend. When we leave on Monday we will probably top off again. The next supercharger is in Lone Pine. We probably could do it w/o charging since it's downhill but i like to play it safe. Want to be able to turn the heat, heated seats, etc w/o worrying about battery :) Also its really fast when you want to top off rather than doing a full charge from almost dead. We rolled into Mammoth with 37 miles to spare this am. Lol. We didn't want to stop last night on way in.
Reasonably priced motel in the heart of June Lake. Rooms are clean, spacious and recently remodeled. We stayed in what was basically a 1-bedroom apartment with separate living room, bedroom and kitchenette. They have other rooms of different sizes including a stand-alone cabin, some are pet-friendly. The staff was very friendly and helpful. This is our 4th and happy stay here over past 5 years.
