Full review

After attending Mt baldy for a few years i have come to a conclusion that the only time that this mountain is worth a one hour drive is when it gets a dump. But the problem i see is that it only gets a dump of snow 2 to 4 times a year. Therefore it leaves baldy with only 5 days of OK skiing. When you do go there it is a fun little experience if there is a lot of snow of course. When there is snow they have fun little tree lines with a fair bit of vertical. There also is a couple of good little hucks. But when there is no snow which is most days out of the season there is a high likability that you will scratch and ruin your skies and be disappointed. So be ware and do not expect much from this hill.
