East Resort

The East Resort is now open daily from 8:30am to 4:00pm.  Its long, groomed, cruising trails make it perfect for carving, but it is also home to the Olympic Bowl, the longest, steepest bump run in the region.  The top elevation is 8,200 feet, which is comparable to the Big Bear resorts.  After a quick ascent on the Mountain High Express, you'll find an additional 20 acres of beginner terrain serviced by The Discovery quad chairlift.  This often overlooked area is perfect for learning and designed to stimulate the heart as well as the head.  With 1,600 vertical feet of uninterrupted corduroy, the East Resort offers traditional skiers and snowboarders a true alpine experience without having to journey far from home.

North Resort

The North Resort will re-open Friday through Monday from 8:30am-4pm for MLK weekend.  It consists of predominately beginner and intermediate terrain which lend itself nicely to the mountain’s family atmosphere.  70 acres of gently rolling terrain is available with historic log cabins just waiting for kids to explore.  A 20 acre, state-of-the-art, tubing facility is also available for those who just want to enjoy the winter experience.  Spend the afternoon shushing down the lanes or warm up in front of the fireplace with a cup of hot chocolate at the North Lodge.  It is one of the region’s most historic base lodges with ties that go back to the Big Pines ski clubs of the 1940s.
