Getting here takes a little more effort than other destinations but well worth it. Very long runs, very few lift lines and when the snow is not perfect, absolutely the best snowmaking in the country. Dining on Baldy is as good as it gets and...More

Beautiful area with nice hotels and conference rooms. In the summer they have: they have ice skating, hiking, river rafting, golf courses, shops, restaurants, an amphitheater, gun shooting, pools, tennis, etc. It is an amazing place for conferences in the summer. I highly recommend it.

Best kept secret--the restaurants, stores, ice-skating, pool, spa, bowling, theater, skiing, and ambience are all fantastic. The service and care given to the visitors are impeccable. Great place to stay anytime! The food, activities, etc. fits all members of the family. We'll be back soon.
