southern california's closest winter resort

Just 90 minutes from sunny Los Angeles, CA, a snowy winter resort lies nestled in the San Gabriel Mountains. Mountain High has been catering to winter enthusiasts since 1942. Each of its three resorts is complete with exciting terrain, lessons, rentals, restaurants and shopping. Your single lift ticket is good at all three areas and there are free shuttles waiting to take you back and forth.

west resort

The West Resort has everything from wide-open beginner trails to challenging terrain parks to gladed tree skiing hideaways. It has a young, energetic feel, but there's more to it than just jumps and jibs. West is home to the Children's Sports Center, the Bullwheel Grill and the Foggy Goggle slopeside bar where live music is featured on a regular basis.

east resort

With 1,600 vertical feet of uninterrupted corduroy, the East Resort offers a true alpine experience. 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. After a quick ascent on the Mountain High Express, you'll find an additional 20 acres of beginner terrain plus the Grand View Bistro, mountain top restaurant.

north resort

The North Resort is the perfect family-friendly area with 70 acres of gently rolling terrain and historic, log cabins. It is big enough to offer a true winter experience but small enough to maintain its historical warmth and charm. Spend the afternoon shushing down the slopes or warm up by the fireplace with a cup of hot chocolate at the North Lodge.

Night Skiing

Mountain High is the only resort in the region to offer night skiing and snowboarding seven nights-a-week peak season. 85% of the West Resort is lit from 5pm to 10pm making it easy to get your runs in after school or work. When finished warm up by the fireplace at the Bullwheel Grill or head to The Foggy Google slopeside bar for Apres Ski.

Resort dining

For on-mountain dining the East Resort offers the Grand View Bistro at its summit and both the Angeles Crest Café & Goldrush Grill at its base. The Bullwheel Grill, located just above the West base area, has the best food at the resort. You'll also find delicious burgers and mouth watering chicken sandwiches at the Big Pines Barbecue at West and the North Pole Grill at North.
