SoCal ski resorts: Mountain High opens today, Snow Summit up next

Mountain High ski resort will be open starting today through Thanksgiving

Mountain High ski resort opens Tuesday for Southern California skiers and snowboarders who want to get a jump on Thanksgiving.

The ski resort near Wrightwood reports its snow-making machines have created a foot of new snow over the past few days. Still, the opening means one lower-mountain lift and trail that accesses intermediate terrain will be available to access intermediate terrain.

Mountain High ski area says it plans to have a top-to-bottom run open by Dec. 3. Early season lift tickets this week will cost $45 for adults and young adults and $25 for children 7 to 12 years old.

It will be open 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Bear Mountain and Snow Summit resorts in Big Bear Lake plan to open this week too.

Snow Summit will open for the season starting Wednesday with top-to-bottom skiing. Early season lift tickets cost $45 for adults, $38 for young adults and $18 for children.

It will be open 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.

Sister resort Bear Mountain will be open 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday with just one or two chair lifts operating, according to its website. The resort plans to reopen Dec. 6 and 7 before opening daily Dec. 12.

Early skiing at Bear Mountain will provide access to intermediate and advanced terrain only. Lift tickets are $45 for adults, $38 for young adults and $18 for children, the same as Snow Summit.
