Bald Mountain Ski Area


Bald Mountain Ski Area Overview

Bald Mountain is a small community run ski area in the Clearwater Mountains of Idaho. This “throwback” ski area is managed by the Clearwater Ski Club. One T-bar lift and one rope tow service a variety of terrain. General Manger Chris Allen says that at Bald Mountain you get all the terrain of bigger mountains, just smaller.

Community is what it’s all about at Bald Mountain. A free shuttle runs from nearby Orofino and 5th graders ski free all season, 6th graders ski free three times a season with an Idaho Ski Areas Association Ski Passport of just $15. The ski hill is open on weekends only, biscuits and gravy are served in the lodge in the mornings and the Board President can be found skiing every weekend.

Affectionately known as the “Best Little Ski Hill in Idaho”, Bald Mountain is family skiing the way it used to be.

Bald Mountain relies on many volunteers, fund raising and donations to operate. Support this community run gem by visiting and shelling out $20 for a lift ticket and the grinniest (yep, that’s a lot of smiles people) day of skiing you’ve had in a while. Also consider visiting the link on their homepage to donate to help keep this community gem around for future generations.
