Moun­tain High is South­ern Cal­i­for­nia’s clos­est win­ter re­sort lo­cated just 20 min­utes off the 15 Free­way in Wright­wood. Its peak el­e­va­tion of 8,200 feet is com­pa­ra­ble to the Big Bear re­sorts, but its lack of moun­tain driv­ing makes it much more ac­ces­si­ble. Moun­tain High is ac­tu­ally three re­sorts in one (East, West, and North) but a sin­gle lift ticket is all you need. Each base area is com­plete with tick­ets, rentals, lessons, and re­tail plus the North Pole Tub­ing Park of­fers fun for the whole fam­ily. Ride the park af­ter dark ev­ery night un­til 10pm at the only South­ern Cal­i­for­nia re­sort open seven nights a week peak sea­son.


Moun­tain High has its shop run­ning full bore this sum­mer re­pair­ing and re­fur­bish­ing more than 50 dif­fer­ent fea­tures. Look for clas­sics that you know and love plus sev­eral new jibs for 18/19. “The team and I are hard at work this sum­mer man­u­fac­tur­ing new rails and boxes to push you. Look for some new 30’-40’ foot rails out there and new pro­gres­sion zones for be­gin­ners. Can’t wait to see you on the moun­tain,” said Rick Van De Mark, Park Man­ager.


Moun­tain High is home to world-class ter­rain fea­tures with park runs for ev­ery age and abil­ity. Few ar­eas in the coun­try put out a wider se­lec­tion of jumps and jibs each sea­son and this year Moun­tain High has a new batch of sig­na­ture fea­tures for you to en­joy. Be­gin­ners head to Creek­side and Sun­ny­side for lower-level fea­tures to start on. In­ter­me­di­ate and ad­vanced rid­ers, check out Bor­der­line, Chisolm, The Wedge, and The Play­ground base area jib park.
