Ahhh…

It’s so nice to get out of town and away from the hustle and bustle! Last week, my family headed to Mountain High Resort in Wrightwood, California for some snow fun…

It was my first time hitting the slopes, and let me tell yah it was an adventure. Whether you are a high skilled skier or snowboarder, or like to sled,  Mountain High is the spot to hit this winter.

Disclosure: Thank you Mountain High for inviting my family to take ski lessons at your resort. All opinions are my own.

Mountain High is nestled right outside of Los Angeles in the heart of the San Gabriel Mountains. The drive up to the mountain was easy, and the scenic views were breathtaking…

On our drive up my son could not contain his excitement. He repeated, “Are we there yet?”

Upon arrival, the friendly staff helped us with our rental gear and get fitted for our skis.

Skiing is new for me, and I enrolled in a beginner half-day lesson.  I felt a bit nervous, but my patient instructor Christina helped me through it. I had a few falls, but overall it was super fun!  I cant’ wait to return and get on the slopes again. I am determined to learn! Lol

Ski and Snowboarding Lessons

Certified PSIA and AASI instructors use proven teaching techniques and the latest equipment to get you cruising down the hill in style. Our programs have some of the highest success rates in the country with lessons for all skill levels. Choose from any number of group packages including our First-Timer program and 1…2…3…FREE, named the Best Program to Grow the Sport to New Participants by the National Ski Areas Association.

Group lessons are offered on a first come, first served basis so we recommend arriving 2 hours prior to lesson times on weekends & holidays.

There is really nothing like a one-on-one or small group lesson with a personal coach…one who is totally focused on making you a better skier or snowboarder. Working with a Mountain High pro, you’ll get the level of instruction you want in the setting you need!

Private Lessons

Whether beginner or expert, there will be times when individual needs or skill focus are best approached in a private format. Private lessons allow you to concentrate on your individual goals and aspirations with a Pro’s undivided attention. Pick your terrain, pick your time, pick your instructor…it’s your lesson!

These fearless kiddos can’t wait to hit the slopes again!

Children’s Lessons

Lessons are available in both Full-Day and Half-Day sessions, and all packages include a lift ticket, rentals, snack or lunch, and an individualized progress card. Full-day enrollment is recommended for younger children as experience has shown they progress more rapidly and retain a greater amount with a full day of lessons.

After the boy’s ski lessons, in no time they were hitting the lift and higher slopes. It was so nice to see my son disconnected from technology and off his devices to spend quality time with us.
