Socal ski paradise, Mt. Baldy, returns with cheap ‘virtual’ season passes

Posted By: The Ski Channel on August 16, 2010 9:01 am

The Mt Baldy Chamber of Commerce has announced that they are again offering special virtual season passes to ski or snowboard for only $99 with no blackout dates.

“For less than the price of 2 regular all day lift tickets you can ski or snowboard at Mt Baldy the entire season. That means after a couple of uses you are, in effect, skiing or snowboarding for free,” states Keith Hunt, President of the Mt Baldy Chamber of Commerce.
“Mt Baldy is the closest ski resort to most of Southern California so less time is spent driving, and more time skiing or snowboarding while saving money. That’s two benefits that are important to our guests and probably the best deal at any ski resort anywhere!”

As these are virtual passes a physical pass will not be issued. Instead skier and snowboarder information is maintained in a Ski Area database at the Ticket Office. Advance online reservations are required, based on availability, at least by midnight the day prior. Skier need only present valid picture ID at Ticket Office on each visit.

Hunt continues, “These special virtual season passes were extremely popular last season and encouraged a lot of skiers and snowboarders to try Mt Baldy.”

“Although these passes are only available exclusively through the Mt Baldy Chamber of Commerce and not from the Ski Area directly, the offer may be withdrawn at any time by the Ski Area. We are also advised that the price will increase monthly until we open for skiing at which time the passes will no longer be available.”

“Passes are available in unlimited quantities while offer lasts. Grab yours now, and then send link to all of your friends and relatives so they can take advantage too,” concludes Hunt.

Virtual season passes can be purchased through the Chamber website at

Mt Baldy is located just minutes north of Upland and Claremont off the 210 Freeway making it the closest ski resort to most of Los Angeles County and the Inland Empire and all of Orange and San Diego Counties.
