Mountain High is proud to announce the opening of Mountain High North, its third resort this Saturday at 9:00am. Located just ¾ of a mile from Mountain High West, the North Resort offers 70 acres of terrific beginner to intermediate terrain, one quad chair lift, and a 6,000 sq ft base lodge with restaurant facilities and giant, log-burning fireplace. Without snowmaking, the North Resort relies on Mother Nature but luckily for skiers and snowboarders more than a foot of new snow has fallen in recent weeks making this opening possible.
Mountain High North is the perfect resort for families and introductory skiers and snowboarders. If you were looking for the last stashes of powder in the region, this is where you will find them as well. The rolling terrain offers hours of excitement and all trails culminate at the bottom of the Sunrise Quad. Formerly Ski Sunrise, the North Resort originated in the 1940’s along with other local resorts such as Mount Waterman, Krakta Ridge, and Blue Ridge, now known as Mountain High West. During its hay-day in the 1960s and 1970s the North Resort was considered a local’s favorite.
The North Resort will operate weekends and holidays from 9:00am to 4:30pm through mid March. With the exception of lessons, all amenities are available including rentals, retail, and food & beverage. Mountain High now consists of three separate resorts (East, West, and North) but a single lift ticket is good at all three areas.
In addition to skiing and snowboarding, Mountain High North offers the largest tubing park in Southern California. Up to 10 lanes are currently available and there are two 450 foot moving carpets to move guests back to the top. Operating hours are also 9:00am to 4:30pm peak season and tickets which include the tube rental are $20.00 for two hours or $35.00 for all day. Children 36 to 42 inches must accompany a parent in a separate tube. Children under 36 inches tall are not permitted for safety reasons.
Says Ben Smith, General Manager, “The North Resort will remain open as long as conditions allow so do not miss this exceptional opportunity to ride a piece of Mountain High that most Southern Californian’s never get to see.”
