Mt. Baldy is a really good local Southern California ski area. I have been going here religiously for the past 11 years ever since a friend recommended it. I actually prefer it over any of the ski areas in nearby Big Bear. The only major gripe I have is the slow, decrepit lift system. When I first started going here in 1999, full day lift tickets cost $20. They now charge $54 for a full day and $64 on the weekends. This is ridiculous given the fact they have made no improvements on the mountain since that time. If they updated even just a couple of the main lifts, this would be a great place.
