Ari Novak & Daniel Pendley Living The Dream
The largest and steepest resort in Southern California, with 26 runs spanning 3 mountains featuring a peak elevation of 8,600 feet (2,600 m). Baldy spans 800 acres (3.2 km2) with an impressive 2,100 feet (640 m) vertical drop, and is located just 45 miles (72 km) from Los Angeles, making it the closest resort to the city. When Baldy has good coverage it often compares well with better known ski resorts in the Sierra Nevada, and the steep Alpine terrain provides a locally unique, big mountain experience. Because so many people divert to other mountains with faster lifts and more groomed runs, Mount Baldy is typically dominated by experienced snowriders who enjoy the steep and technical challenges available there.
