  • We came right at the heart of ski season expecting it to be a huge crowd but, if you get there early, its actually pretty easy to get equipped and up the slopes in no time. We got there right as the t...  more »

  • If you get a season pass, don't bother with the Preferred Parking upgrade! You pay $99 and you only get to use the privilege if you get there the first few hours of opening, and if you want a spot after that time you have to send an email to reserve, because after noon they let ANYONE park in preferred parking! How does that make any sense that people who PAY for the privilege have to email a reservation yet those who DID NOT just take those spots? It doesn't make a lot of sense does it? Even before noon, you'll see MANY people park in preferred anyway with zero enforcement. The few times I've been able to get a spot, it was at the end because all the spots were taken by non-paying vehicles!
  • Not a kid friendly place. If you have kids under 10 years of age, leave them at home. The lifts come too fast and are too high for a young child to get on. I got run over by the lifts twice trying to lift my child on the lifts and getting on myself. The second time, my knees got hurt and I had to stop snowboarding. It hurt for two months. You can ask them to help get your child on but getting off is an issue too. I asked them to make sure it slows down when we reach the top. The girl on duty phone the guy at the top, but when we got there it was still going way too fast. I yelled at the lift operator to slow down but it was no use. I quickly jump off and had to yank my child down and we both fell. The lifts are very dangerous with young children. This is a shame because the slopes were perfect for beginners and thus young children.
  • If you are expecting Mammoth, Tahoe, Park City, or Vail this is not the place for you. To complete a surf in the morning and snowboard at night in one day; this is the perfect place. One hour and fifteen or so minutes gets you from sand to snow. No mountain switchback driving. There is a lively atmosphere at Mountain High. The employees seam to enjoy being there. The snow is usually icy with a heavy dose of machine made packed powder. Actual powder days from real snow are usually few and far between. Worth calling in sick if you hit one though.
  • Great ski and snowboarding resort! There's 2 or 3 ski/snow board rental places a few minutes from here so that is a major convenience. There are lockers located right next to the restrooms by the outdoor parking lot and by the tables. You need to but a lift ticket to slide down the slopes but it's a very nice facility. They also provide extra snow if the mountain areas aren't snowing enough :) Best time to go is probably the last 2 weeks of December but it really just depends on the year. 👍👍👍
  • Nearest ski destination for So. Cal. residents. Pleasant staff and location, and assortment of different skill levels of slopes ( nice bunny hill for beginers, many blue, green level slopes, some black diamond when snow is high). Sometimes live DJ ,music or radio station appearance. Good family fun!!! Rent equipment and/or take lessons.
