Had the best day skiing yesterday with my daughter! Easily drove up to this fun, charming ski resort from one of the beach cities in Orange County in less than two hours. Beautiful sunny warm day. Slopes were well groomed, staff very friendly and organized at the ski rental. (Mountain is actually bigger than it looks in the picture as... More

Snow Valley is a family fun place. They offer sledding on one side of the mountain along with an area where little kids can build snowmen and just play in the snow that is completely safe from the ski and snowboarding traffic. The runs are not that challenging and the mountain itself is much smaller than the other two resorts... More

Love this place! It's the same size (Ski-able acreage) as Snow Summit, 30-45 minutes closer, and much less corporate. Slide Peak is amazing, as is the back country. The front of the mountain also has nice solid runs for everybody - boarders and skiers of all levels. Everyone is always smiling, friendly and helpful. Lines can get long on popular... More

I like snow valley, its good if you have smaller kids. The resort is smaller than all others I've been to, like Snow Summit, Mt. High or Baldy, but they have a great little snow play area for sleds. It was a bit expensive when I went, maybe I was there during peak weekend, Im not sure.

I don't ski, but the lines to pick up online tickets, then rentals and then to start the children's lessons easily took two hours on MLK weekend, even with the help of hosts trying to make everything work. That said all of the employees were very nice and seemed to be trying hard. The beginner classes for kids did seem... More

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2016

Have taken our kids here a couple of times. Because the elevation is lower than other resorts, the snow is more often made than natural and not all the lanes are always open. However, because there are more popular and (honestly) better ski resorts close by in Big Bear the hot dogs and experienced ski/snowboarders go else where. This leaves... More

On the Snow Valley website, it sells 4 lift tickets for $99. That promotion only runs before snow season starts. Look out for the same deal next year in December.

Bwatufull view and cabins. Wondering family vacation with kosher food and lots of entertainment. Can wait to go there for snow season.

This place is fun for a few hours but don't pay the full price, use any discount you can. They do have security scanning the parking lot quite often. It's an ok place.
