A powder day at Mt. Baldy is heaven--steep slopes with trees, dropoffs, and if you add powder, to the mixture--it's amazing. The beginner gulch can get a bit slow and sometimes rocky, but once you get up chair 3 and chair 4, it's amazing again. At times, you will get moguls, namely under the liftline runs. For any freestylers, there aren't too many jumps and rails, but there are a few, which is good enough for me. The parking lot runs are usually open in the middle of the season, along with the incredible holcumuc and eric's error runs, which are very isolated and steep. To go with those, there's three runs coming off the traverse on the parking lot runs, if you go all the way you're going to hit Bentley's Dream, which will take you to the base of Chair 1. On a good day, it's always fresh and soft.
One of my personal favorites is called Turkey Shoot on Chair 4. If you're a regular on a snowboard, it's great because there's a bowl on the right the whole way down the run, which you can do frontside or backside 360s on with ease. Turkey Shoot is also how you get to eric's error and holcumuc. I'm waiting for this season now. I very highly recommend Mt. Baldy to anyone thinking of coming up this '05-'06 season.

As a beginner, I found it much easier and pleasant gliding down the slopes in all that powder. Even falling was gentle on my old bones. More advanced skiers seem ecstatic over the new snow, as several times I heard them say that they could not remember better conditions at Baldy.
