Close to LA, Long, steep runs, ski anywhere on the Mt.
slow lifts, only good if there's natural snow
When theres snow, it's the best area in So. Cal. Long steep runs, friendly staff. You can ski the entire Mt. even a long run to the parking lot. Old fashioned mom & pop feeling, nice tasty cafeteria.
All runs empty to the same lift. Rarely crowded.
Why go to Big Bear, very crowded, short runs, not very challenging.
It's the best kept ski secret in L.A.
