Resort Descriptions

Mountain High is home to not one, but three distinguished resorts.  Even though they are only a mile apart, they offer stunning differences in both terrain and atmosphere.

West Resort: The West Resort is filled with a seemingly endless assortment of technical trails and skillfully-designed terrain features for progressive riders and skiers of all skill levels. It is the most youthful of the three areas and the site of many on-hill contests, promotions and live performances. It is also Southern California's only local resort open five nights-a-week peak season.

East Resort: The East Resort boasts the longest trails for Southern California skiing serviced by a single high-speed quad.  It is also known for its thrilling moguls, gladed tree skiing areas and breathtaking views of the Mojave Desert. Rising as high as 8,200 feet, the East Resort offers traditional skiers and snowboarders a true alpine experience without having to journey far from home.

North Resort: Mountain High's new North Resort offers 70 acres of beginner terrain perfect for families and introductory skiers. It is also home to the North Pole Tubing Park, the largest tubing area in Southern California. Formerly Ski Sunrise, Mountain High North is located directly across from the West Resort and operates Friday through Sunday peak season.

 


 

On-mountain Services

Free Shuttles: Mountain High offers parking at each of its base areas with free shuttle service. Shuttles run continuously from 8:00am to 6:00pm, seven days a week during the season.

 


 

Positioning Statement

Mountain High is Southern California’s closest winter resort located just 75 minutes from Los Angeles and Orange County. The area consists of three separate mountains (Mountain High East, West, and North), and offers a wide variety of high-speed lifts and alpine trails, the world class Faultline Terrain Park, an outstanding Winter Sports School, and the region’s largest tubing park. Snowmaking covers more than 80% of the slopes delivering consistent snow conditions from November through April. Mountain High is traditionally the first resort to open for Southern California skiing and snowboarding each season and the only local area with night skiing seven nights-a-week.
