I moved to LA a few years ago from Colorado. I skied a lot in CO and did a bit of backcountry skiing there at Berthoud Pass and also a couple of hut trips.
However, since moving here, I have only managed to get out to go skiing for the very first time this year at Mt. Baldy about a month ago. I went again a week or two ago, and now I really want to find some places to go backcountry skiing.
I got a couple of guidebooks from the library and I will be planning to re-certify with a level one Avalanche class that is offered at Mt. Baldy next year.
I also joined a MeetUp group for backcountry skiing in California.
Curious to know if people in Southern California have any great recommendations for:
*Places to ski? Tours or day trips?
*Groups or clubs?
I've been reading the Sierra Descents blog which has a lot of great info.
Any recommendations or advice for a newcomer (kind of) to California would be fantastic.
Thanks all for your time.
