Ski Season Begins: An Early Opening for Mountain High
Operators at Mountain High were hoping to open this Sunday or Monday, but it appears enough snow from both nature and its large reservoir-to-snowmaking system afforded them an even earlier opening with five-hours of open slopes that began at noon today. One lift and three trails are currently open.
