WHAT YOU WANT TO KNOW
FOR BALDY Mt
Mount Baldy, in the Okanagan, BC, transports you into the high alpine with views of Canada’s only natural desert and largest wine country. With minimal to no lift lines, some of the best prices in BC, amazing gladed terrain and light fluffy powder, this hidden gem should be on your bucket list. Here are some of our top statistics about the resort.
Baldy Mt is among the highest ski resort elevations in Canada and is the ninth highest in BC. Baldy’s day lodge rests at 5,665 feet/1,726 meters above sea level, the ski area is lift serviced to 6,965ft/2,123m, and the summit is 2,310 meters/7,580 ft. Baldy boasts 80% beginner to intermediate terrain, world-class grooming, and long lasting fresh powder after a snowfall.
With 35 alpine runs, 360 acres of trails, and 240 acres of glades for tree skiing/boarding, practically the entire mountain can be explored. The variety of terrain at Baldy Mountain Resort offers many green, blue or black options off each lift, and all trails return to the day lodge, making the mountain easy to navigate. In addition to our ski and snowboard trails, Baldy Mt has 5 km of groomed cross-country skiing trails for beginners to intermediates. Baldy also offers 5 km of snowshoe trails for explorers of varying abilities.
Baldy Mt receives around 25ft feet of natural snow per year, and is blanketed in fresh powder from around November to April. Our high elevation means amazing snow quality, and we’re very proud of our dry Okanagan, interior, BC powder! At Baldy Mountain Resort we keep you informed with up-to-the-minute live conditions via our webcam, grooming reports, trail and lift status updates, and the latest mountain weather forecast.
Baldy Mt has two main chairlifts, Eagle and Sugarlump, as well as a magic carpet. Our two-seater Eagle chairlift has a maximum elevation of 2,123m, and our four-seater, Sugarlump, has a maximum elevation of 1,942m. These lifts provide access to all varieties of terrain, from green to black.
The Baldy lodge sits at the center of the resort and is easily accessible from the entire mountain. Our much-loved lodge has been renovated for the 2017/2018 season and features a complete remodel of the Baldy Bar, and updates to the Corduroy Cafe and washrooms. The lodge can seat 215 people at any one time.
