I had always heard shit about it, but had never been until this season. Going in with very low expectations, I was pleasantly surprised when all the runs were open, and the most I had to wait in line all day was around 40 seconds. The parking situation is pretty good, the snow itself was decent, packed with a few pockets of powder on the day I went.
Lift 2 allll the way on the right side draws hardly any attention and will take you half way up the mountain.
Also, using the code "PH2" my buddies and I got half off lift tickets, which turned out to be about $22.
For a day of riding, I'd say it was a pretty good deal for southern California.
Does it's terrain compare to Bear Mtn's? No.
If your strapped and looking for a cheap, easy day of boarding, I'd say it's most def. worth it.
