March Storm Brings New Snow To Mountain High (22-Mar-09)

Mountain High, CA, March 22, 2009 - Winter returned to Mountain High overnight as temperatures dropped

Winter returned to Mountain High overnight as temperatures dropped nearly 20 degrees in the last 24 hours and snow began falling at 7am this morning. This dramatic change in weather is a welcome treat for skiers and snowboarders looking for a few more powder slashes this season. Weather forecasts are calling for up to four inches of new snow today and the snowmaking crew expects to begin snowmaking this evening.

Mountain High West is open today from 8am to 10pm with night skiing tonight night from 5-10pm. Up to six lifts will be in operation accessing 22 trails with terrain for all levels and abilities. Please note that lifts and trails are subject to change without notice. All trails at West have been groomed and we currently have a 12 to 36 inch base of firm machine groomed snow. Today’s highs are expected to reach the low-30s. All roads are open and clear with no restrictions. For more information please visit
