Am i missing any?

Mt. Baldy but its only natural snow and not opened often and I hear is bad unless they get dumped on which isnt often. I bought tickets last year for like $20 from some early season deal but the season was so bad it wasn't opened often and when it was I never ended up going

Last year was bad no doubt about it, but the year before was definitely ride-able.

Season passes were only like $120 and you can just book the tickets online so it worth to have if you want to make a quick day trip

Mt waterman
I dont think they have a web page but if there is snow they will open. They have 2 or maybe 3 lifts. I've never boarded there but I've hiked and biked past it countless times. If you drive up Angeles crest highway you can't miss it as the parking lot is just a turn out and the chairlift is about fifty feet off the side of the road. I believe they operated two seasons ago?

Go to Mammoth. By far the best mountain in Socal (or near socal). It's a legit big mountain - 11,000 feet at the peak.

Last year was a bad year not only for Mammoth but in the midwest in general, but I still managed to get there on a March weekend when it dumped 3 feet in 24 hrs. That morning was EPIC - see pic. Mammoth gets ALOT Of snow - at one point in 2010, it had the most snow of ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD.

From what i've read, Mammoth should have a good year this year.

Mind you, it's a solid 5 hr drive from Los Angeles. But IMHO, it's worth it. I love that mountain.

Actually that's a good idea, i just saw i can get a pass for 300 bucks if i get it soon
Are there cheap places to stay at? I'm like 5-6 hours away so day trip is out of the question.

Season passes are $199 if you're a student:laugh: but what is this non sense about day trips out of the question. Wake up at 0200 and make the drive, have a totally awesome shred day that was completely worth it and get home by 12. Bam

where are you talking about getting a pass for $300? the only place that cheap is Mtn High. I love me some Mtn High!!! I don't know about cheap lodging in wrightwood, I live about an hourish from there.

I know there's cheap motels in both Big Bear and Mammoth tho. Condos can be had on the cheap if you have a group. Couches can be found for even cheaper :laugh:


Wangta, I remember that weekend myself. Looks like a lot of chair 10, 3 and 5..ahhhhhh..... This year will be better, it simply has to!

jml22 10-30-2012 06:31 PM

Web site says 300.
Aw man that's psycho insane status lol. Take 3 hour shifts on driving? lol
I'd rather spend 50-100 with 3-4 friends for the night, board 2 days and then drive home.
It's not the drive up i worry about it's driving home in the dark
