Mt Baldy Resort California and Escape2ski connect you to skiing, snowboarding, snow reports, trail maps, lift tickets, lodging and webcams. Mt Baldy Ski Lifts can be found in the San Gabriel Mountain Range of California. Mt Baldy Resort opened to the Southern California public as a winter playground in 1952 and has been delivering an authentic mountain experience ever since. The Mt Baldy Road serves as the only access into the ski area and is approximately a 30-minute drive from the base of the mountain range. As you make you way up the mountain, you will pass through several small mountain communities and after a few twists and turns you will arrive at the parking lot where a small base lodge is located. Access to the main area of the mountain is via Chair 1, which will bring you to the main day lodge where your day of skiing and snowboarding begins. Just a note, depending on the snow levels on the day of your visit you should be prepared to download on Chair 1 to return to the parking lot.
