Winter Weather Returns To Mountain High

Wrightwood, California—Cold temperatures have returned and Mountain High expects some of the season’s best snowmaking to take place over the next 5 to 7 days. The Wrightwood resort has a surplus of water this year and will continue making snow well into the spring to offer guests the best possible coverage. Every trail with snowmaking at Mountain High’s West Resort is now open and area managers fully intend to open both the East Resort and the new North Resort as soon as conditions allow.

Says Joe Affleck, Snowmaking Manager, “We’ll work around the clock if the weather is right. With good conditions, we can make enough snow to cover a one mile stretch of the 405 freeway with a foot of new snow overnight.”

A picture is worth a thousand words so for a glimpse of the daily conditions, guests are encouraged to visit Mountain High’s website at

In addition to snowmaking, several inches of natural snow is expected on Saturday and Sunday, just in time for the President’s Day weekend. Ticket sales will be limited during this holiday period and reservations are recommended. Tickets may be reserved online at 24 hours a day or by calling toll free, 888-754-7878, between the hours of 11:00am and 6:00pm.

Regular season rates are in effect now through Friday, February 17th, at just $48.00 for an adult 8-hour ticket, $30.00 for an adult Night ticket, and $20 for a Child’s Ticket, ages 7 to 12. Holiday rates take effect this Saturday through Monday, February 18th through the 20th, and will be $58.00 for an adult 8-hour ticket, $30.00 for an adult Night ticket, and $20 for a Child’s Ticket, ages 7 to 12. Children six and under ski free any day when accompanied by a paying adult.

Despite the lack of snow this year, Mountain High’s terrain park is blowing up and will only get better as more snow falls. Jumps and jibs flow top to bottom on almost every open trail at the West Resort, and only Mountain High offers signature features such as the Paradox, the Biloxi Box and the Double Trouble Wall Ride. In addition to the resort’s two exciting jib parks, riders will find advanced features on Upper & Lower Chisolm, beginner rails and boxes on Creekside, and a new line up of intermediate features on Borderline. There is only one way to find out how good the Faultline Terrain Park at Mountain High is and that is to ride it. All roads are currently open with no restrictions, and the drive is short and safe.

Mountain High is Southern California’s closest winter resort. Three separate areas offer a wide variety of lifts and trails, and each base area is complete with ticket windows, sport shops, rentals, restaurants, lessons and more.
