Let's do some discount skiing / snowboarding at Mt. Baldy! Lift tickets are normally $69 so we're getting a great deal. In addition to spending the day together it would be fun to play some games on the slopes like leap frog and follow the leader! At lunch time we'll get food together at the Top of the Notch restaurant. Big 5 has some good deals on gloves and hats if needed. Mt. Baldy is an hour and fifteen minutes away from West LA.
