We hiked up there instead of using the ski lift for 25$ because dogs are not allowed on the ski lift and the ski season is over so I couldn't take my snowboard either. I wanted both. The hikes starts from the Parking lot - 5$ for parking- and it's about 3 miles to the top. I would recommend if... More

We just wanted to take the ski lift to the top and look around. The view was nice. There was a bit of snow, but was melting slowly during the March of California weather. This is no resort, so don't expect anything fancy. The service is OK. The service folks were friendly. The parking is $5 at the bottom. We... More

I took my son to ski for the first time!. I choose to take some lessons. Although it was not private lessons, the instructors were amazing, very thoughtful about us (it has been 10 years since I've last ski), but he took special attention to my 6 years old boy! After a few rides on the learning area, we went... More

Mt Baldy is no joke; it get's cold up there. Lot's to do, play in snow, hike, snowboard, ski, it's all available. Amazing snow play place in southern California! Go!

If you go in Jan, make sure you take layers of clothes, including snow boots, gloves or mittens, and a good jacket with a vinnie or hat!

Although snow season is short in Southern California, it is very convenient to drive to Mount Baldy ski lifts. Buy a lift ticket, it takes about 20 minutes to reach Top of The Notch. If weather is permitted, a good place to play snow.

As this was the 1st opening day in a few years we were soooo excited to ski. Powder day, sun and just cold enough. Really good early season conditions and nice to see friendly faces from the past. I met the legendary "Snowy" Joey O'Brian and some of the new staff. Mt Baldy will prevail and we must go there.... More

Went for an event that I had recently discovered called, "The Battle Of The Brews." It started in the Spring, but, I found out about it for the last of the Semi-Finals. The most recent visit was for the finals. The 20 minute ride to the Notch, the restaurant and bar at the top of the main lift, offers a... More
