STARS Update!


After 3 feet of snow these past few days it looks like we will have a great time on Wednesday. Conditions are perfect with packed powder and no crowds. And if you believe that..I have some beach front property in Banning you can purchase. Early April Fools!! Just wanted to end our STARS Program on a happy note.

Yes, we will NOT be having a STARS Program on Wednesday due to the lack of snow. Just wanted to thank all you Seniors and of course our Instructors, on making the 5 clinics we had this season the BEST! 

We end our 9th year and now the guarantee for next season. We will be at East with plenty of snow for most of our 12 clinics. 

Have a great summer and remember , "It doesn’t have to be perfect. It doesn’t have to be fast. Just keep skiing and have a good time!

Reminder STARS Clinic 3-21-16

Good Afternoon STARS:

Just a reminder of our Senior Clinic on Wednesday, March 21st at the WEST RESORT!! Don’t forget we will be inside at the Big Pines Lodge at 8:00 am for sign in. 

Well received 5-6 inches of FRESH Snow yesterday and the mountain is completely white. (See photo) Looks like this Wednesday should be a special as we expect to receive some more snow too.

Please RSVP as soon as possible so I can have enough instructors to meet your needs.

There will NOT be online purchase of your lesson or lift ticket this week for STARS. Make sure you get to the ticket window by 8:00 am to purchase your lift ticket and lesson.

More information on our Senior Program can be found at
Special thanks to those Seniors who have already RSVP’d.

Ski u Wednesday,

STARS, Wednesday, March 14th Cancelled

Just want to let you know that our next STARS Clinic, Wednesday, March 14th 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 starting Thursday through Saturday.
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 9 years of the program and 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 year’s 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 alongside each and every Wednesday. Without their commitment we could not meet the individual needs for you Seniors. Thanks.. Ron, Allan, Mike, George D., George M. Larry H, Brenda, Greg and Antonio.
I also want to thank Anne, Tracy, Damaris, and Katie for their continued support behind the scenes to make our program the BEST! Thanks!
Our STARS Program would not have been possible without the complete support of management. In the past nine years, they have provided resources in making the STARS Program successful. Thanks Karl, Michele, John, and Ben.
Last but not least I want to thank Blaine Lomen, 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 by the end of the week I can bring you GREAT news that we will have the snow conditions warranted to have our next STARS clinic on March 21st!
