I goto Snow Valley to their "Back COuntry" area with slide peak and such for pure mountain riding. It is decent with lots of snow. Just today I was up there and they had fresh 12 inches on it. Powder everywhere.

I am going to Mt High on the 19th to check out their steeps. I hear good things about them but have never been up that far at High.

Never been to Bear or Summit.

For the drive Mammoth was amazing.... worth every minute of the 6 hours up there. Great snow and lots of steeps and such.


Just my .02

SV has lots of deals going on midweek and stuff.
Craigslist has a bunch of deals for the different resorts.
Mt High has great midweek deals and such also.
Albertsons has a midwek thing for Bear, spend 35 dollars and get a ticket.

I forgot about Mt Baldy, that one might be what your looking for, but I havent been up there so havent a clue how the conditions are.

Big Bear & Snow Summit are fun...and Mt.High has some great deals. Baldy sucks (imo).
But seriously, if you can make the trek up to Mammoth it's SO worth it (and spend the night in Bishop- close and WAY cheap).

Bear Mountain for some black diamond runs/and their famous park features. Within 2 miles is Snow Summit, which doesn't have many park features and is more of a place to just cruise down the hill. Then again, neither Bear or Snow Summit has many steeps. Relatively easy courses to go down the hill vs. Mammoth or Tahoe. Snow Summit is more popular with skiers. I also feel like the runs are longer there. If you are planning on just making a day trip from Socal, leave the resort by 3 p.m. or earlier (as in driving out of the parking lot) to avoid massive traffic going down the mountain. Takes about an hour to get down the mountain with little to no traffic. About 2 hours with heavy traffic.

bear mountain and snow summit are the best hands down.

snow valley is decent for what it costs (i've seen deals for $18-28ish). that back way up top (usually opens after 10am during certain months) will get you good backcountry runs.

i go to mountain high reluctantly sometimes. the plus side to mountain high is it's an easier drive.

never been to mount baldy.
