{running springs} ski free snow valley

February 24, 2016


For my birthday last month, I wanted to do something a little different, so I looked up all the places where you could get free things on your birthday, and Snow Valley Ski Resort came up as one of them! Complimentary lift ticket if you go on the day of your birthday!

So my dad, little sister, mom and I got up early and headed to Snow Valley.They couldn’t get free lift tickets, but with a coupon code I found online, each of their tickets were under $30, which is a pretty good deal anyway!

Snow Valley is a little over 2 hours from San Diego (without traffic.) It’s on the same route towards Big Bear, but with about 45 min less driving on windy mountain roads.

As you can see from this picture of the ski lifts I took while riding, the equipment at Snow Valley isn’t the most up-to-date.

I only went to the very top of the mountain once since you need to go on a system of 3 separate lifts to summit, but the view was definitely nice!

Looking up from the bottom of the mountain. The peaks weren’t very high and there weren’t particularly difficult runs at this ski resort, but it was definitely the right price, there were no wait line for any of the lifts, and it made for a perfect free/cheap skiing day-trip getaway and birthday celebration!
