One of the best snow making systems in the US. Its being (or has been this year) replaced with fewer jets but more powerful and environmentally friendly.

Wonderful groomed runs or black diamond moguls Bald Mountain has it all for the experienced skier and snow boarder. Eat fabulous lunches in one of 5 or so restaurants on the mountain or at the base. Buses and free past king right at the base.

You can't beat the views from the top of the mountain. The short hike to the very top is well worth the small amount of effort. Feeling brave? Try the bike ride down. It is not for the faint of heart.

Well worth while during non-snow season to take the combination gondola, ski lift ride up Bald Mountain. It is then a short trek up to an overlook to take in the surrounding mountains vistas.

we skied Bald Mountain from March 16-21. I was really impressed with the work they do to keep as much of the mountain open as possible. Clearly their reputation for outstanding snow making and grooming is well-earned. That said, I was surprised by how little...More
