Magic Mountain Ski Resort Elevation

Magic Mountain Ski Resort has a summit elevation of 2,850 feet, or 869 meters. However, not all of that elevation is able to be skied. The base of the ski slope sits at 1,350 feet above sea level, creating a ski hill that is 1,500 feet (457 meters) high. This is referred to as the slope's vertical drop - or a measure of how high the skiable hill is.

Magic Mountain's summit elevation is about average. There are a lot of ski slopes that are quite a bit higher, but also many that are much, much smaller.

Magic Mountain Ski Resort Difficulty Level

Difficulty Score
52.3out of 100
←  EasyHard  →
Magic Mountain 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 76% 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.
