What You'll Get
The call of the wild is like a call from an elderly grandparent: though you can’t quite make out what’s being said, you feel better about yourself when you answer. Pick up nature's phone with today's Groupon: for $28, you get a scenic ride for two at Mt. Baldy Ski Lifts (a $60 value). This Groupon also includes two $10 vouchers to Top of the Notch restaurant, located at the top of Mt. Baldy. Mt. Baldy's ski lift operates Friday from 11:00 a.m. to sunset, and from 7:00 a.m. to sunset on Saturday, Sunday, and holidays.
Mt. Baldy's ski lifts gently propel patrons through the San Gabriel Mountains over the 26 slopes and 2,100 square feet that cover Mt. Baldy's expansive terrain. Ski lifts and hiking trails blaze through mountainsides, affording glimpses of historical mining facilities and natural wonders, such as canyons and Mother Nature's secret collection of acre-long coffee spoons. While en route, keep retinas peeled for glimpses of wildlife in the form of bighorn sheep, rattlesnakes, and body luging sasquatches.
With the included meal vouchers to Top of the Notch, Groupon carriers can enjoy mountainous views while noshing on breakfast spreads—including breakfast burritos ($9.45+) and powdered-sugar-draped pancakes ($7.95)—or one of the handheld eats populating the dinner menu, such as the bacon blue burger ($10.95). Like historical Civil War sites on the moon, there are no gas stations in Mt. Baldy, so please plan accordingly.

About Mt. Baldy
From this high up, the world seems small and compact, framing the ocean, mountains, and desert in the same field of vision. Though Mt. Baldy's soaring peaks seem to shrink the globe to the size of a globe, they also grant access to nature's majesty throughout the year. Four chairlifts gently propel skiers through the San Gabriel Mountains over the trails and 600 acres of skiable earth ranging from gentle slopes to natural quarter pipes. In the warmer months, hiking trails blaze through mountainsides, affording glimpses of historical mining facilities and natural wonders, such as canyons, fauna such as bighorn sheep, and Mother Nature's secret collection of acre-long coffee spoons.
