“Small place”

Mountain High Resort
Reviewed 19 March 2013

This resort is small and has no attraction for non-skiers. Otherwise the tracks are well kept and it is not busy. We went in midweek and there were no lines at the lifts.

Wow!! My nephew has a learning disability. He has taken lessons several times, but has a lot of trouble focusing on what the instructor is saying. Mountain High offers an amazing package for children and adults with a disability. A THREE HOUR lesson, private instruction, equipment rental, and an all mountain lift ticket for less than $100. He had a great experience. His instructors were patient and encouraging. They were able to get him to refine his skills and make real progress.
THANK YOU MOUNTAIN HIGH!!! for thinking about All children.

This resort is a local favorite for skiing and snowboarding fans. About 1.5 hours from LA it's an easy drive without winding roads, but also VERY popular! If heading up after a heavy snowfall, be sure to go EXTRA EARLY to avoid doubling commute time and the long lines at the ticket window....been there, done that!!! Parking close avoids long walk from car and less stress for everyone!

Helpful tips: rent equipment in advance: take advantage of group rates...a steal for scouts; look for discounts at supermarkets; secure lift ticket correctly to clothing to avoid delays through automatic turnstiles; for lunch, try the outside grill (21 and over only) it's pretty good; don't wear headphones on slopes so you can hear call-outs and avoid collisions; much shorter lines and less congestion above beginner slopes and away from jumps; shuttle service from/to east-west resorts.

Keep in mind, Mt. High is NOT Mammoth or Big Bear, but good chance you won't get motion sickness on the drive and will complete a lot more runs for a lot less $ so have fun!

Well groomed snow, modern lifts, great views of Baldy & the Mojave, with better skiing at the East resort with 1600 ft of vertacle on mostly intermediate trails. LOts of borders at Mt High West, but both area havew fine snow-making. And those of us +70 can ski ffree!

We went up to the hill to eat and have a couple drinks. The bartender was amazing. Honestly, we go our for drinks often on our trips and find small towns aren't always the best to tourist. However, she was exceptional! I would put her name so you can ask for her but I was afraid that may not be ok. Oh and another local came and hung out who was very nice and friendly. Again not something we see as tourist from locals in the small towns. So this was a pleasent surprise.
