North Resort opens at Mountain High Posted on January 14, 2008 by Richard Irwin Mountain High’s North Resort opened to skiers and snowboarders for the first time since November of 2004. Two feet of recent snow made it possible and many turned out to enjoy the former Ski Sunrise. Located about a mile from Mountain Highs West Resort, the area consists of 70 acres of beginner and intermediate terrain, one lift and a base lodge. Without snowmaking, the North Resort relies on natural snow and, with several light winters, it was only just today that the mountain finally opened. Today is a great day in Mountain Highs history, said Karl Kapuscinski, President and CEO.
