in truth if the snow coverage is poor --which it often is-- then baldy is still FAR better than the other local alternatives. They make snow and groom a blue run and a black run and you can ski those perfectly happily for southern california.And when there is snow --which happens a few times a year... it's pretty crazy. The black and double black runs are legit and there's some 'off piste' to do among the trees where you kind of have to jump a fence because they don't want the general public in there but it's the real deal.
