Mountain High opened its doors to a record number of skiers and snowboarders who flooded in for the start of the 2012/13 season. November 11, 2012 marked day 1 of a season that is expected to rival years past and Southern California couldn’t be more excited to jump into some fresh snow, carve some turns and hit a few kickers. With the arrival of the El Nino cycle, consistant low temperatures and steady snowmaking, Mountain High execs say this season is looking to be one to remember.
During the offseason Mountain High invested $1 million in renovations to their snowmaking equipment, which along with consistant making snow through October, has allowed them to lay nearly 16 inches in the past two days. This efficiency has lead to three lifts opening and a increase in accesible terrain, ranging from beginner to intermediate. Mountain High offers something for every member of the family including top to bottom terrain features for freestyle skiers and snowboarders.
“We are very excited to lead Southern California into winter again. It’s going to be a great season with the return of El Nino, significant base area improvements and the addition of our value-added sister resorts, Stevens Pass, WA, Sierra At Tahoe, and China Peak, CA, where pass holders ski for free”, Says Karl Kapuscinski, President and CEO, “We’ve made tremendous improvements to the West base area, our season pass sale is doing very well, and with the hopes of a little extra El Nino snow the stage is set for a great season.”
