Adam and I faced a big debacle when skiing at Big Bear last year (debacle = traffic nightmare/overheating) so this Saturday we are trying something new: Mountain High. Which is the shittiest name for a mountain resort, I think, but whatever.
Why this resort? Well, they have a flex pass where you can buy a 4 hour ticket--for any block, of four hours. Which works with our plans to get there sometime after 8 am and go straight with no breaks. Hard core. Even better is that it claims to be just 90 minutes from LA. Which means we can ski in the morning and surf in the afternoon. Now that is crazy.
Sadly, as you can see from this trail map, Mountain High has little to offer. Whatever, just getting onto some ski slopes is good enough for me.
