WRIGHTWOOD, Calif. – Dec. 4, 2018 – Mountain High successfully opened today for the 2018-19 winter season. Around 1,000 guests took to the slopes for their first runs of the year. Recent storms and fresh machine-made snow allowed Southern California’s closest winter resort to open with three lifts, four trails and better-than-normal conditions.

“The new season is here and as a token of our gratitude, all first responders ski or snowboard free through this Sunday (December 9).” said John McColly, Mountain High vice president of sales and marketing.

Early-season tickets are just $59 for adults and kids 12-and-under with a paying adult ski free through December 21 ($25 without). Ticket prices are subject to change without notice.

Operating hours are 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday – Thursday and 9:00am to 10:00pm beginning Friday, December 7. The Big Pines base lodge opens daily at 8:00 a.m. with tickets, rentals, retail and guest services.
