i live in pasadena,ca (10 minutes from downtown LA)
and mountain high is 1 hour from where im at. Its amazing, 1 hour to the snow. 45 minutes to the surf.
and if you want more powder in your sessions, bear mountain is 1 hour 45 minutes away.
and i gotta say finding cheap as hell lift tickets or season passes isnt hard in L.A..... That craigslist.
its LA so theres always work no matter what your field. (im a graphic designer) and theres tons of work in LA.
+ being able to go back home to san diego is only a bit of a trek.
cannttt beattt itt with a glass full of heroine.
