Mountain High, Southern California’s closest winter resort, is set to open Wednesday, December 6 for the 2017-18 season. Skiers and snowboarders can hit the slopes at the West Resort from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and the first 100 guests receive a free pair of Andorra gloves (valued at $50).

Top-to-bottom terrain features and trails for beginner to intermediate skiers and snowboarders will be available the moment the lifts start spinning. Mountain High has nearly three times the water available for snowmaking this year which means better coverage, more terrain features and longer seasons.

“We are absolutely stoked about the new season,” said John McColly, Mountain High chief marketing officer. “It’s expected to be a great one with new features in our terrain park, new online ticket products, and tons of water for snowmaking. This winter will be packed with fun events, not to mention the Olympics, so grab your season passes now. We don’t want you to miss a moment of this epic season.”

Early season tickets are just $49 for adults, $29 for nights from 5pm to 10pm, and $25 for children 12-and-under. Children age six-and-under ski free when accompanied by a paying adult. Seniors 70+ are free every day. Early season ticket prices are subject to change without notice. Mountain High season passes are still available for purchase, so click here for the latest pricing.
