Join MAA for a one-day winter ascent of Mt. San Antonio (Baldy). We will hike from 6,000' to 8,200', take a break at the ski hut and climb one of the more technical west chutes in Baldy Bowl on our way to the summit at 10,000'. There are many chutes to choose from and with the recent snowfall it should be a blast! Prior experience climbing steep snow is required.

SCREENED EVENT: Please join the waitlist. Attendees will be selected based on skill proficiency and experience. Those registered will be notified. Thank you! 


  • What's happening: Hike from Manker Flats (6,000') via the Baldy Bowl trail to the ski hut (8,200'), then climb one of the chutes in Baldy Bowl (1000' - 1600' of snow climbing on slopes up to 40-45 degrees) on our way to the summit (10,064'). The total mileage & elevation gain one-way: 4.5mi/4,000'. This is a moderate to strenuous climb and should take most of the day depending on weather and strength of the team.
