This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to Michelle! Random.org selected comment #2! Enjoy your time on the slopes!
Where else but California can you surf in the morning and snow ski in the afternoon? Its both a question and tag line that Southern California tourism bureaus love to use. As a lifelong California resident, I have never had the pleasure of completing this feat, but I have made mountainside snowballs in the morning and had the sand between my toes in time for a beachfront sunset. It truly was a wonderfully unique experience.
So where do people in Southern California go when they are looking for a day filled with snow? Many head to Mountain High. Mt. High is the closest resort to the Los Angeles metropolitan area and visitors staying in LA or Orange County can make it to the slopes in under 2 hours. Since the resort is located only 20 minutes off of Interstate 15, there is the added benefit of not having to deal with treacherous mountain driving.
The Mountain High ski season typically runs from November to April and the resort consists of three separate mountains- Mountain High East, West, and North. The resort also includes two world-class terrain parks and the North Pole Tubing Park, the largest in the region. So whether your family skis, snowboards, or sleds, you are sure to find a hill that fits the bill.
First timers are welcome at Mountain High. There is a children’s academy offering full or half day lessons to children aged 4-9 and adult group lessons for parents and older children. Private and family lessons are also available. For the tiniest little skiers, the resort offers the parent and me “Virtual Snow” simulator. It helps prepare tots (and even older people who are a bit nervous about skiing) for the real event.
