I got my dual season pass, though I do agree, it'd be nice having it while there is snow on the ground. I was out there last opening day, I'm dying. Any pre-season kick offs/parties?

I'll probably end up getting a mountain high pass. I'm pretty far out from both but I got no one to ride with me to bear. Mountain high is an easier drive. I just hope they open east earlier.

Last year after Thanksgiving Snow Summit closed the following 2 weeks as the snow they had melted. Not even sure if they will be open Thanksgiving this year - hoping they are as we will be up there for 4 days. A few years back they didn't open until December 8th I believe. Thanksgiving the mountain was brown...

I learned to snowboard at 50! woo hoo!

Well Mt High might be opening this weekend if the weather cooperates and it keeps snowing. They got 4-6inches last night with another predicted 3-7inches tonight. They are pushing for Sunday and gave it a "fair" chance they will open then but also mentioned that if we get a good dump tonight that Saturday is game too.

Anyone else gonna head down this weekend if they open?

I don't do high on the weekends.

But I am not working the week of thanksgiving. If it's open then I might go, depending on ticket prices.

I have most of december off work--gotta check when school has winter break!

Is mountain high really that despicable? I've never gone but I'm jonesing to be on the board again... Is the scene there that horrible that one would rather wait it out till snow valley or bear opens? Really curious… Im dying to go anywhere at this point feels like... but seems like Mt. High is almost unsafe like there are snowboard thieves and gangsters all around the way people speak about it.

Still debating if I should do a 5 hr trek to Mammoth for some half decent snow apparently. Not deep or vast but dammmm... I want to ride

Mountain high isn't that bad if you really want to go. I will never go there again personally, the thing that gets me is I've never been somewhere where so many people sit in the middle of the runs that are already small as it is. Also be careful with your board and leaving it anywhere especially if you have a really nice set up. I think it was last season that some guy was stealing boards and putting them under his truck, well until he got caught.
