    How about if it was your birthday every time you went skiing or snowboarding?

    The Mt Baldy Chamber of Commerce is giving away free season passes to the Mt Baldy Ski Area to encourage more visitors to the mountain.

    The Mt Baldy Chamber of Commerce is giving away free season passes to the Mt Baldy Ski Area on a first come, first served basis.

    This offer will expire October 31st 2009, when they open for skiing, or they we run out of passes whichever comes first.

    Where’s the catch? There isn’t one. The season pass has a few restrictions and there is a one-time $49.95 activation fee to cover administrative costs, but that’s it.

    A full season of skiing or snowboarding for less than a daily discount ski lift ticket to Mt High or Big Bear.

    Mt Baldy is immediately north of Upland and Claremont. Take the Mountain Avenue exit in Upland off the 210 Freeway and go north following signs to Mt Baldy Resorts. Alternatively take the Baseline exit in Claremont and go north on Padua and turn right on Mt Baldy Road. Mt Baldy Road dead ends in the Ski Area parking lot.

    To obtain a free season pass or get more information please go to a special Mt Baldy Chamber of Commerce website at

    Thank you

    I believe this has also changed at Belleayre Mountain, NY. Last year it was discounted and this year I see no mention at all….
