Two lifts running at Baldy Mountain Resort this weekend

Baldy Mountain Resort plans to open as scheduled

Baldy Mountain Resort said they will have the Sugarlump chair and the magic carpet operating on Friday, Dec. 8.

“After the early November snowfall we had some mid-November rain and have had little snow afterwards. Meaning we are not in a position to open the Eagle chair just yet. The Eagle chair accesses very rocky high alpine terrain and many of the big rocks don’t have enough coverage to make the terrain safe to navigate,” said general manager Andy Foster.

It was an absolutely stunning weekend at @baldymountainresort!! Who's ready to enjoy bluebird powder days like this?? We open December 8.
