Is it just me, or does this slope look insanely steep?

David,

It's a very, very steep slope. You wouldn't want to fall there and not immediately self arrest.

North face of West Baldy. West Baldy is maybe a quarter of a mile along a connecting ridge from the more well known peak Mt. Baldy (offically Mt. San Antonio)(10,064'). These two peaks are at the east end of southern California's San Gabriel Mountains and are about 35-40 miles from downtown L.A.

Ryan,

That was Jan. 2006. The coverage on that slope was solid and hard. Be interested to hear what it's like to go to W. Baldy from that canyon bottom.

Not unless your sled had some amazing brakes on it! Happy Holidays Tanya.

This looks like something I would ski. How many months out of the year does it hold snow? I have inlaws in LA and could fit this into my plan.

Just during the winter. Melts pretty fast once the snow stops falling.

Yes. With that hard pack surface you really have to be careful. Thanks for commenting.
