Mountain High -First Resort to Open this Winter in Southern California

Posted By: Emily Bates on November 25, 2014 4:57 pm

Ski season kicked off in Southern California today with the opening of Mountain High, one of the region’s premier winter resorts.  This marks the 18th year in a row Mountain High has been the first to open in Southern California.

Roughly 1,000 guests donned their skis & snowboards and hit the slopes of Mountain High for their first winter fix of the season.  It’s a special treat to be open for Thanksgiving and the resort credits its hard working staff and dedicated employees.

“What a great day today,” said LA resident Jon Brion. “What I love about Mountain High is that you are in LA one moment and then you feel like you are in the middle of the Sierras or the Rockies the next.  The fact that you can get a great day of skiing with such a short, easy drive is why I keep coming back.  When we heard it was already open, we thought we’d go there and it would be empty with a little ribbon of snow.  But to our surprise, it was great skiing and there were a lot of people there.  Great day!  Can’t wait for a couple of snow storms!”

Says Ben Smith, General Manager, “We’ve added several new snowmaking guns, our season pass sale is doing very well, and, with the hopes of a little El Nino snow, the stage is set for a great season.”

Operating hours will be 8:30am to 4:00pm through Thanksgiving.  Night skiing and Tubing Park operations will be evaluated after that.

Early Season Ticket rates will be just $45 for adults and young adults (Regularly $69) and $25 for children ages 7 to 12.  Kids six and under ski FREE with a paying adult.  Ticket sales will be limited so please arrive early for the best experience.  Prices are subject to change without notice.

The Coyote chairlift is currently spinning accessing an impressive rail garden on Cruiser with up to 10 features.  100% of the open terrain is groomed and thanks to Mountain High’s incredible snowmaking team we have a 10 to 12 inch base of machine groomed hard packed snow.  By next Wednesday the resort plans to have at least one top-to-bottom run open if not more.

For first-timers Mountain High offers a full line of rental and retail products however the Winter Sports School has not yet opened for the season.
