The Mount Baldy Ski Lifts, or "Baldy", is a ski resort located on Mount San Antonio—Mount Baldy in the San Gabriel Mountains. It is in San Bernardino County, Southern California. Located 45 miles or just about an hour northeast of Los Angeles, California, Mt. Baldy Ski Lifts is part of the Angeles National Forest.
Baldy is a fabulous ski resort for folks who are new to skiing since it has with its dedicated Flow Zone area, a terrain-based learning setup designed to focus on progression with rollers and banked turns. Staff is standing by at the Mt. Baldy Flow Zone to give tips, assist with the basics and familiarize gear. 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.
I highly recommend coming up the backbone trail though it has many inclines, looking at people coming up the bowl/ski hut trail, that looked even more challenging and steep. Technically the bowl/ski hut trail is shorter but with all those hills I don't know if it's any faster on the way up. Also you can use the lift. The ski lift ride up (and down) the mountain was so nice, very peaceful and beautiful. The view from the top of the mountain was priceless. Almost worth the hassle to get up here. The ski lift closes at 4:30 pm and they charge $25 per/person but it's worth!
Baldy is approximately 40 miles northwest of the San Bernardino International Airport, but the closest airport is Ontario International Airport (ONT), about 30 minutes south of the ski resort.
