Welcome Back STARS

Well it is time again to get our Senior Program STARS going for 2016!!  We would like to officially "Welcome" you to the Mountain High Seniors Ski/Snowboard program (STARS). We are looking forwarding in adding many NEW Seniors this year to our STARS program.
Mountain High is open from top to bottom with 5 runs and up to 5 chair lifts running. Conditions are very good for this time of the season and we are just waiting for “Godzilla El Nino” to take over.
We will begin the Senior Program on January 6, 2016. We will determine by January 3nd if we are at the East or West Resort. Mother Nature and our snowmakers have given us a great start on our Ski and Snowboard season. We have lots of snow (10”-18”) to have a great time! If you have any questions about the program you can go to  or contact me by email.
Remember we have online registration process. This way you will never have to get in another line again to purchase your lesson or lift ticket.
But YOU MUST FIRST GO TO THE VIP WINDOW AT THE RESORT on the day of the clinic to begin the process. After you have shown your ID you will be given an Express Pass ($5.00 charge) to be used at the next clinics. After this initial set up at the ticket window you will be able to purchase your lesson, lift ticket and rentals from your own computer at home. For more information on our online program, please paste this URL in your browser.
All seniors who have an Express Card already; were previously registered and DO NOT NEED TO COME TO A TICKET WINDOW. You can purchase the first lesson online. You do not need to buy another Express Card. Online purchase process will be active one week before each clinic.
Just remember our program offerings are every Wednesday at 9:00 am at Mountain High beginning on January 6, 2016. We will begin with introductory comments, an indoor clinic and then a 2-½ hour clinic from 9:30-12:00 pm. Safety and fun is the key, with the morning being the best time to meet.
Please RSVP to this email if you will be making a reservation for January 6th.
Just a reminder:
Cost: Lesson $25. Equipment rental $15 (New shaped skis), and under age 70 lift ticket - $10 (free age 70 and over).
Additional information for the STARS Program, please call the Winter Sports School at 760-316-7861 or email or
Hope to see all of you on the 6th of January!!

Ski u later,

STARS Clinic March 11th Cancelled

Just want to let you know that our next STARS Clinic, Wednesday, March 11th will be cancelled due to snow conditions not the BEST for you Seniors. This does not mean the end of the season but a temporary hold on our program till we receive more natural snow.

I want to THANK each and every Senior who participated this season and your commitment does not go unnoticed by the instructors and me too. You are why we do this each week here at Mountain High. Most of you have been with us since the beginning, February 2010.

We have almost completed 6 years of the program. From our eyes it has been a fantastic program and we want to make it even better next year. Please take a minute and email me one thing we can glow on (Positive) and one thing we can grow on (Improve). This will help us develop the necessary goals for next years program. Your input is so valuable, without it we cannot build the program.

I would like to personally thank the instructors who have been incredible this season dealing with all the changes we have had to endure to make this program work. This TEAM is OUTSTANDING and a pleasure to work along side each and every Wednesday. Without their commitment we could not meet the individual needs for you Seniors. Thanks.. Ron, Allan, Larry, John, George D., Bruce, George M. Joan, Ava, Heinz and Jim.

I also want to thank Cindy, Tracy, and Katie for their continued support behind the scenes to make our program the BEST! Thanks ladies!

Our STARS Program would not have been possible without the complete support of management. In the past six years, they have provided resources in making the Program successful. Thanks Karl, Michele, John, Ben and Robert.

Last but not least I want to thank Nord Embroden, our Winter Sports School Director who works tirelessly making our WSS the BEST. He has given his total support behind the STARS Program and all of us really appreciate it.

Hopefully in a couple of weeks I can bring you GREAT news that we will have the snow conditions warranted to have our next STARS clinic.

Until then….. Ski u later,
