PROS: Only a 1.5 hour drive from Los Angeles.
CONS: This place is disgustingly crowded. Because of its close proximity to the city, this ski place is so crowded you might only get 3 runs/hour. That is, your ski run might be 1-2 minutes long while your wait time in the chairlift line is about 15-20 mins. The staff at Mt High do not do much to keep the place orderly so the trails are littered with snowboarders sitting down in the middle of the runs/trails.
