Learning Center

The Terrain Based Learning Center at the Top of the Notch Recreation Area is the perfect introduction to sliding on snow. By shaping the snow into gentle banks, berms, and rollers entry-level skiers & snowboards are able to easily keep their speed under control. Learning in this type of controlled environment promotes more focus on technique and progression by removing the fear factor. After getting a feeling for the basics in the Learning Center the next step is to take on Beginners Gulch and Chair Lift #2 where you will find a degree more of challenging terrain.

Once you are on your way to learning and progressing at sliding on snow we are confident that you will soon discover that Mt Baldy is the place to be if you are serious about making skiing or snowboarding a part of your life. Mt Baldy is the only resort in Southern California with the terrain to prepare you to take on any mountain in the world.
