A further two ski resorts just opened in California, bringing the state’s total to three.
Mammoth Mountain was the first to open, a day early on Friday, November 13.
On Saturday, Mountain High opened to pass holders, and then to the general public on Sunday. Mountain High had originally planned to open on Thursday the 12th but put back that opening after four employees tested positive for covid-19. The resort was reporting a 20″ base at the summit and had two lifts running, serving six runs.
Day 1 was a blast! The sun was shining, the new features were out, and it was a beautiful day. Thank you everyone for coming out ❤️ We will still have a capacity limit of 1,000 tomorrow, which was reached at about 9am this morning, so show up as early as possible or after 12! pic.twitter.com/Sdcb9fhe1P
