About the Ski Resort

Mountain High is Southern California's most popular winter resort. Just 75 minutes from Los Angeles and Orange County, the area welcomes its guests with two distinctly different mountains and a wide variety of lifts and trails.

Each base area is complete with ticket windows, restaurants, sport shops, rentals, ski & snowboard schools and much more.

Though you can't see it from the base area, the East Resort stretches 1.6 miles up into the mountains giving you some of the longest cruising trails and powder runs in Southern California.

It's where those who know go! At the West Resort you'll find a large mountain
loaded with both technical terrain and wide-open beginner areas plus West is lit every night from 5pm to 10pm.

From Los Angeles or Orange County, take I-10 east or 60 Freeway east or 91 Freeway east to I-15 north, to 138 west to Highway 2 and go three miles past Wrightwood.

From San Fernando Valley, take I-5 north to 14 Freeway to Pearblossom Highway 138 east and follow the signs.
