The 2013/14 ski season got under way today in Southern California as Mountain High opened to a full crowd of skiers and snowboarders. For the past 17 years Mountain High has been the first regional resort to open top to bottom and this season the excitement is evident. Winter enthusiasts packed the Wrightwood Resort making it one of their best opening days in recent history. Thanks to a foot of fresh snow and recent snowmaking improvements, Mountain High is now one of only 6 resorts open in the state. Snowmaking will continue as conditions permit and Mountain High hopes to open more terrain soon.
Says Karl Kapuscinski, President and CEO, “With so much natural snow and snowmaking this is one of our biggest openings in years.”
