A beautiful opening day at Mountain High Resort for the 2012/13 season!
Winter. It comes every year. If you’re like us it can be torture waiting through the warm autumn days. But it will come. Just like it always does. Winter. Our favorite season of the year. Surfboards get traded in for snowboards. Hats get traded in for beanies. And sometimes significant others just get traded in. That’s how it is when you love winter. And at Mountain High we’ve been working hard all summer to ensure we’ll be the first resort to open in Southern California for the 16th year in a row. Because like you. We just cant wait any longer...for winter.

Mountain High is home to not one, but three distinguished resorts. Even though they are only a mile apart, they offer stunning differences in both terrain and atmosphere.
West Resort: The West Resort is filled with a seemingly endless assortment of technical trails and skillfully-designed terrain features for progressive riders and skiers of all skill levels. It is the most youthful of the three areas and the site of many on-hill contests, promotions and live performances. It is also Southern California's only local resort open seven nights a week.
East Resort: The East Resort boasts the longest trails in Southern California serviced by a single high-speed quad. It is also known for its thrilling moguls, gladed tree skiing areas and breathtaking views of the Mojave Desert. Rising as high as 8,200 feet, the East Resort offers traditional skiers and snowboarders a true alpine experience without having to journey far from home.
North Resort: Mountain High's new North Resort offers 70 acres of beginner terrain perfect for families and introductory skiers. It is also home to the North Pole Tubing Park, the largest tubing area in Southern California. Formerly Ski Sunrise, Mountain High North is located directly across from the West Resort and operates Friday through Sunday peak season.
