Mt. Baldy Ski Lifts, or “Baldy” for short, is a family owned and operated ski resort located in Mt. Baldy, California, on Mount San Antonio (aka Mt Baldy). The resort features traditional runs, chutes, and tree runs, and claims to be the “largest and steepest resort in Southern California”.
Biking, On-road & Off
Mt. Baldy is extremely popular with the biking community, considered one of the hardest – if not the hardest – climbs in all of Southern California. There are opportunities for mountain bikers as well, with an extensive system of bike-able trails and fire roads. Also the home of the anual Amgen bike tour.
Hiking Trails Galore
Perhaps the most popular draw to the Mt. Baldy area, is the hike to the summit of – the officially named – Mount San Antonio. Hiking trails access the summit from three sides of the mountain and one route is assisted on summer weekends by the availability of a running ski-area chair lift.
