Ski season kicked off in Southern California today with the opening of Mountain High, one of the region’s premier winter resorts. This marks the 18th year in a row Mountain High has been the first to open in Southern California.
Roughly 1,000 guests donned their skis & snowboards and hit the slopes of Mountain High for their first winter fix of the season. It’s a special treat to be open for Thanksgiving and the resort credits its hard working staff and dedicated employees.
Says Ben Smith, General Manager, “We’ve added several new snowmaking guns, our season pass sale is doing very well, and, with the hopes of a little El Nino snow, the stage is set for a great season.”
Operating hours will be 8:30am to 4:00pm through Thanksgiving. Night skiing and Tubing Park operations will be evaluated after that.
Early Season Ticket rates will be just $45 for adults and young adults (Regularly $69) and $25 for children ages 7 to 12. Kids six and under ski FREE with a paying adult. Ticket sales will be limited so please arrive early for the best experience. Prices are subject to change without notice.
The Coyote chairlift is currently spinning accessing an impressive rail garden on Cruiser with up to 10 features. 100% of the open terrain is groomed and thanks to Mountain High’s incredible snowmaking team we have a 10 to 12 inch base of machine groomed hard packed snow. By next Wednesday the resort plans to have at least one top-to-bottom run open if not more.
For first-timers Mountain High offers a full line of rental and retail products however the Winter Sports School has not yet opened for the season.
