Saturday morning, at approximately 10:00 am, a boat carrying five male passengers overturned on June Lake. Two men were able to swim to shore, but the remaining three have not been found. First responders searched all day until there was not enough daylight left. The search will resume on Sunday morning.

The two men who swam to shore were medically treated and released. The boaters were at June Lake on vacation, and their families arrived this afternoon. Please hold these families in your hearts and prayers as they cope with this tragic accident.” – Mono County Sheriff’s Office

Strong winds and precipitation have been pounding the West Coast this weekend.  The boat may have capsized due to wind and waves.

Very sad news.  Our heart felt condolences to the friends and family of the victims.

June Lake is located just north of Yosemite National Park, CA. 7,621′.  There is a small ski resort named June Lake on the shores of the lake that offers access to the best lift-assisted backcountry skiing on the West Coast.

  1. We were up there Thursday through Saturday.
    The winds were crazy and I got us off the water.
    None of the lakes should have allowed any boats to launch whether rental or personal
