Baldy Mountain Resort Elevation

Baldy Mountain Resort has a summit elevation of 6,965 feet, or 2,123 meters. However, not all of that elevation is able to be skied. The base of the ski slope sits at 6,371 feet above sea level, creating a ski hill that is 594 feet (181 meters) high. This is referred to as the slope's vertical drop - or a measure of how high the skiable hill is.

Baldy Mountain Resort's summit elevation is higher than average. There are a lot of ski slopes that are much higher than this one (some stretch to 12,000 feet!), but it is not small by any stretch of the imagination.

Baldy Mountain Resort Difficulty Level

Difficulty Score
35.5out of 100
←  EasyHard  →
Baldy Mountain Resort can be beginner-friendly, but it depends on the ski trails you ride. While it ranks in the lower half of all North American ski areas in terms of overall difficulty, it still has 71% of its trails rated at or above intermediate ski level.


At Parks & Trips, we've created a proprietary Difficulty Score that attempts to show how difficult a particular ski slope is. We get to this number by combining a number of metrics for each resort and comparing them to its peers. Most of the score is based off the amount of easy-intermediate-expert slopes by acreage and the maximum vertical drop of the overall resort, but also includes a few lesser-used metrics as well.

Our algorithm compares each resort’s metrics with all others in North America, then assigns each a Difficulty Score, which we use to rank them accordingly. Resorts with a lower score are easier to ski than those with a higher one. However, a high score does not mean that the resort does not have any easy slopes, or vice versa. This is just an overall score given to the resort based on all its metrics grouped together.
