Lol. Mt High does NOT look like that just to be clear, the only times ive seen Bare spots were early season november and early december this year.. and they were nowhere near as bad as that pic haha. They have good coverage lately, no bare spots at all. Though I def agree that it's not worth a visit if you're flying from out of country, it's a very small mountain with not a lot to do.

Original poster said mid January. Not march. My highs sucks 80% of the time . I commuted from highland park to Torrance , it took 30 minutes to get through down town.i commuted from Redondo to Costa Mesa 50 minutes each way. Why do you bring up commute times , they aren't going against traffic. And if the day sucks don't go to mt high. Drive 6 hr to mammoth. Canada got good storms the last two years but weather is not predictable one year out .

This picture is mammoth coverage today and why I drive 5 hours

your post makes no sense. Besides, rush hour traffic is 24/7 in LA.

OP, I suggest SLC or BC. Mammoth is awesome, but people in california are assholes...like we've not proven it in this thread

Standing in a line like this would turn anyone into a ass. If you mistime a storm you might get caught in this crap.

LMAO.

Yeah, I would NOT ride Mt High if I flew 15 hours across the pacific. Save it for a real resort.

From LA, Mammoth. From SF, Tahoe. Not sure about Portland area resorts but Seattle ones I've seen don't really have any ski in ski out places.

SLC and Denver aren't far at all from LAX and if you time it right, you might only be out a couple hundred bucks. Southwest is the shit for flying, as they are relatively cheap, and don't charge you to check in snowboard bags. They are very easy going.

Yes do not ever come to SLC/Utah - unless you want to wait in the lift line for 30 minutes for a crappy run and mormons yelling at snowboarders all day.

mammoth/tahoe/colorado is what you want.

Got some friends in SF who have just gone up to Tahoe so I'll have to see how they found it.

Cheers for the tip re Southwest. Air NZ do the same thing here at home on domestic flights with snowboard bags, but not international flights. Sucks because they are really good to fly long-haul on.

holy shit!! That is why I don't snowboard on weekends. It was 80 degrees today here in the lovely So Cal mountains. Btw it was probably that warm at Mtn High too, jus' sayin'

Mormons do not yell, they are the politest people I have ever met. LIES From Wasatch Man! SLC is what you are after.

No seriously, Mammoth is awesome and if you end up there I can help you avoid said lines and other BS.
