Old school Baldy lifts has been providing thrills and joy for generations. It's a classic local ski/board area like no other. Facilities are basic. Follow the ridgelines and you'll find yourself looking into some fantastic bowls that will force adrenaline through you veins. ... Full Review
I paid for everythinng (lift,tube,food,parking) and i only have fun tru lifting the top of the mountain...other than that food service takes forever just for a sandwich or nuggets! So we ended up wasting $400!!!!! ... Full Review

When there is snow nothing comes close to Mt Baldy as far as high level terrain. When there is enough snow to the parking lot it’s a nice finish to end the day but because it’s lower elevation quality of snow for the parking lot run is less then optimal. If you are an advanced skier who lives in SoCal and can’t drive to Mammoth for the weekend I suggest Mt Baldy. Thunder mountain has steeps, moguls, trees and even groomed run or two. I can literally stay on the chair all day. Easy to get to and not that expensive (lots of deals available) Mt Baldy is my SoCal favorite. ... Full Review
Have skied every mountain in SoCal with the exception of waterman. When Baldy gets snow, it is hands down the best there is. Pow days at baldy have literally brought me to tears before cause theyre that good. No lift lines if you go on a weekday, and even if you go on a weekend it isn't bad. Lift ops are awesome too. Ebveryones there just to have a good time. Runs off 3 are fun and steep but there are a couple mellow groomers off it if that's what youre into. Chair 4 is lots of fun as well and a little less steep. Tree skiing off of both is great though. Would not really recommend this mountain to a beginner.. youre better off learning somewhere like bear or mammoth where there is more beginners terrain. Keep in mind that baldy is old and somewhat outdated, so techinical issues happen sometimes. No big deal, it makes the days you get to ski baldy that much better, and baldy's old school no frills feel is why I love it. To everyone complaining about the chairs being too slow, get over yourself and enjoy the views baldy has to offer..or just don't come up haha. ... Full Review
Horrible road conditions. Stay away if you want to live! There are cars parked all the way up to the resort, to play in the snow on the side of the road. Drivig up there no matter what car you have is dangerous because of the amount of snow bunnies. Save your time and well being and stay away. Pure chaos. Little hell canyon. ... Full Review

Used to be wonderful, but has gone down the toilet since Robme Ellison has been in charge. Alienates locals. Real jerk. Greed prevails. Do not support this corrupt business. Concern of Forestry Environmental violations, OSHA and Health Department non compliance. ... Full Review
