Mountain High Resort in Wrightwood officially opens this Sunday, November 11th, marking the start of the 2012/13 Southern California ski season.  The combination of cold temperatures and recent improvements made for great snowmaking and the Wrightwood resort was able to put down 12 to 16 inches of new snow over the past two days. 

Says Ben Smith, General Manger, “We’ve made tremendous improvements to the West base area, our season pass sale is doing very well, and with the hopes of a little extra El Nino snow the stage is set for a great season.”

Mountain High spent more than $1 Million this summer updating everything from snowmaking to learning programs to their terrain parks.  They also added value to their season pass by offering FREE skiing at Stevens Pass, WA, Sierra At Tahoe, and China Peak, CA.
