With a summit elevation of 8,600 feet, Mt. Baldy, California boasts 2,100 feet of vertical. The Southern California mountain also features 26 trails serviced by 4 ski lifts. The mountain offers a seven-lane tubing park located at the top of the Sugar Pine Chairlift 1 as an alternative or addition to your ski day. Also located at the top of that 15-minute lift ride is the Top of the Notch Restaurant, a scenic dining experience for breakfast, lunch and dinner at 7,800 feet that overlooks Southern California.

Baldy is a great ski resort for those new to skiing or riding with its dedicated Flow Zone area, a terrain-based learning setup designed to focus on progression with rollers and banked turns.

Advanced and expert skiers and riders, and those who manage to progress their skills to that level will find plenty of challenge at Baldy with a healthy percentage of steeps on the trail map.
