Give Thanks for Powder on Thanksgiving at Mt High

Posted By: The Ski Channel on November 23, 2011 12:49 pm

Powder and a turkey dinner — what a great combo! This Thanksgiving, your premier destination for Southern Californian residents is Mountain High. With its close proximity to the Los Angeles area, sneaking in a powder day has never been easier.  Mt High is already taking off as skiers and snowboarders take their first turns to celebrate the long weekend.

The West Resort is open with 8 groomed trails and 4 lifts operating: Blue Ridge Express, Coyote, Moving Carpet, and Snowflake. Exhibition and Roadrunners are on standby and soon to turn their wheels.

Forecast calls for sunny skies today as a storm moves in on Thursday, sunny and warmer on Friday and Thanksgiving weekend. These ideal conditions are too good to miss.

Detailed Thanksgiving day weather report:  Turkey day will be on the colder side with chance of light snowfall.  A low pressure system drops southeast and closes off to the southwest on Thursday, offshore from Southern California. Most of the energy and moisture may remain offshore (with the low center).

Friday – Sunday Thanksgiving Weekend: An unseasonably strong high pressure ridge (in response to unseasonably strong and cold low pressure in the Gulf of Alaska) builds in across the western US into western Canada (initially), as low pressure (storms, snow and rain) develops across the eastern US. Expect less wind, mostly sunny skies, and warmer temperatures.

Today is the last day to take advantage of early season rates, only $45 for adults, $24 for children (ages 7-12), kids under 6 ski free. Mountain High’s flexible ticketing even lets you purchase tickets BY THE HOUR! Or purchase by the run for the greatest level of convenience. Tickets are good seven days a week.

The Flex Ticket is available in any 4 or 8-Hour block of time and, unlike tickets from other resorts, the time of the Flex Ticket doesn’t begin until you take your first lift so you’re always guaranteed the full value. More ticket info:
