Snow Valley is by far the best value lift ticket in the Southern California area. If you get a SnowJam card ($25 one-time cost), it gives you 50% off lift tickets and free lift tickets on your 2nd and 5th visits! If you don't want a SnowJam card, you can always go to Lifttopia.com for great deals as well. As of the time of this review, weekdays lift tickets on non-holiday weeks are as low as $21! So yeah, I'm a huge fan of Snow Valley and will continue to be for years to come as long the prices remain this low. On final note, the drive to Snow Valley is about 30 minutes closer, too. :)
