Opening Day: Mountain High
After all the fun us interns have had sitting in our cubicles updating mountain stats, we actually went snowboarding. Mountain High, the closest resort to Compton and Inglewood, had its earliest opening ever, Wednesday, October 27th. The lifts opened at noon and greeted a slew of eager riders with almost two-feet of fresh snow.
We couldn’t make first chair, but thanks to the lights, we still got to shred into the cold night. There was untracked snow to be had, and we had at it, as snow was still falling into the night. Mountain High still holds the title of first resort in Southern California to open for winter.
