Mt. Baldy

  (...) While the staff is great, and the locals are tremendous, this is a very advanced mountain with extremely challenging conditions that are nothing like anything else in Southern California. You cannot compare a slope like, say, Vertigo at Mountain High West, rated as a double-black diamond, with any double-black diamond at Baldy, where the slopes are far steeper and have numerous obstacles. While I found some really sweet powder their last week, the area
    is prone to very high winds, sheets of glassy ice where you would never expect them, and even after a big snowfall, there are stretches of mud, dirt, and rocks. If you take training seriously, and are experienced, and you pay attention
every single second, and you don't mind having the living crap scared out of you, you can have a great time on this mountain. If you are lazy, drunk or inexperienced, be prepared to go home in a cast-- or a helicopter. --Ma Says Matthew.
