The Mt. Baldy Ski Lifts, located in Southern California’s San Bernardino County, is the closest ski and snowboard area to Los Angeles, just 45 miles from the city. Mt. Baldy boasts the steepest vertical drop, 2,100’, in Southern California thanks to its 8,600’ summit. Mt. Baldy is merely a nickname, as the ski area actually resides on Mt. San Antonio, which with an elevation of 10,069’ is the highest peak in the San Gabriel Mountain Range. The ski area also provides affordable ski and snowboard lessons and equipment rental and their Top of the Notch restaurant provides wonderful views from 7800’ and spectacular meal options for skiers and snowboarders visiting Mt. Baldy.
