Mountain High North will open this Saturday at 9 am. The North Resort offers 70 acres of beginner to intermediate terrain, one quad chair lift, and a 6,000 sq ft base lodge with restaurant facilities and giant, log-burning fireplace.
With no snowmaking, it relies on Mother Nature but a foot of new snow has fallen in recent weeks making this opening possible.
Mountain High North is great for families and introductory skiers and snowboarders. If you were looking for the last stashes of powder, you’ll will find them as well.
The rolling terrain offers hours of excitement, with all trails ending at the bottom of the Sunrise Quad. Formerly Ski Sunrise, the North Resort originated in the 1940’s along with other local resorts such as Mount Waterman, Krakta Ridge, and Blue Ridge, now known as Mountain High West. During the 1960s and 1970s the North Resort was considered a local’s favorite.
The North Resort will operate weekends and holidays from 9 am to 4:30 pm through mid March. With the exception of lessons, all amenities are available including rentals, retail, and food & beverage. Mountain High now consists of three separate resorts (East, West, and North) but a single lift ticket is good at all three areas.
