“Southern California’s 2001/2002 ski season officially begins tomorrow,” chimes John McColly, Marketing Director. “I’ve already taken a run and the conditions are incredible.” This marks the fifth year in a row that Mountain High has been the first resort to open in Southern California. Aggressive snowmaking and a little help from recent storms were greatly responsible. Unbeknownst to most, Mountain High is home to one of the largest snowmaking systems in the country and can cover over 95% of the mountain with manmade snow. With more storms in the forecast, snowmaking conditions should be exceptional and the mountain expects to open more terrain in the near future.
