Posted By: The Ski Channel on April 12, 2012 7:05 pm

Late Spring is here…but, don’t hang up those boots and goggles just yet. Mountain High Resort in Wrightwood, CA has announced that thanks to a late-season storm, the resort will re-open this Saturday and Sunday from 9:00am to 4:00pm! With four inches of fresh powder already fallen and another six inches on the way, weekend conditions should be exceptional!

“This will be the last hoorah of the season so come and join us,” John McColly, VP of Sales and Marketing said. “Please use any remaining tickets or vouchers you may have because they will expire at the end of day Sunday.”

Resort officials predict the majority of the West Resort will be open. For those without tickets, discounted tickets will be on sale for $45 for Adults and $25 for Children ages 7 to 12.  Kids six and under ski FREE when accompanied by a paying adult.

Before buying a day ticket though, visitors should consider purchasing a Season Pass for the 2012/13 season.  Currently on sale for the lowest price of the year, season pass holders are free to ride any day or night the resort is open and receive a number of exciting benefits.  Prices start at just $349 for new passes and $299 for existing pass holders from Mountain High or any other California Resort.  Click here to learn more.

Mountain High is Southern California’s closest winter resort located just an hour and a half from Los Angeles and Orange County. The area consists of three separate mountains (Mountain High East, West, and North), and offers a wide variety of lifts and trails, a world-class terrain park, an outstanding Winter Sports School, and the region’s largest tubing area. Night skiing & snowboarding is available most nights and snowmaking covers more than 80% of the slopes.  Mountain High has been the first resort to open in Southern California for the past 14 years and traditionally operates from mid November to mid April.  For more information, visit
