4.3

Less than 2 hours drive from Los Angeles, Mountain High is one of the most visited resorts in South California. The small mountain is often compared to Bear Mountain, although is less focused on terrain parks and is much more suitable for beginners and families. The only thing that might disappoint skiers here the variable conditions due to lower snowmaking capacity.

Great friendly to everyone atmosphere. Not the biggest and doesn't have a lot of snow, but very fun. Great selection of park features, fun setups. Great place to ride or hangout. They have an outdoor stage with a live band and outgoing atmosphere. Really enjoyed my time here and will be back.... More
