The trip to June Lake is one of the most popular ski tours from the Marble Mountain Snopark. If the snow is good, the skiing is easy. Other skiing and snowshoeing options are available, and the snopark also serves as a base for hiking and climbing trips. Marble Mountain Snopark is the hub for snowmobilers, cross-country skiers, and snowshoers on the southern slopes of Mount St. Helens. Adequate snow cover for skiing can usually be found from December through March most years. The snow at the snopark is seldom very dry and often changeable, so it’s generally best to be riding on no-wax skis. Most days are skiable here if you’re prepared for the conditions, but some days are definitely better than others.

I skied on the upper sasquatch loop from Marble Mt snopark. The upper loop had some excellant snow and I skied down the more challenging part. What a great run! There are some great views of Mt St Helens on that trail and a couple of beautiful meadows. The Pine Martin trial is alittle rough because of the November storm that produced some flooding near the June Lake trail head. I would recommend sking the road between Swift creek trail head and June lake trail head.
