Based on Yahoo, it looks like Baldy has 48-96" base and all lifts(4) open whereas Mt. High is spring condition and only 4 out of 13 lifts open.
1. Don't believe Baldys web sight. If you can call before you go do it. Chair 4 is in direct sun light all day long. Chair 1 is basically a parking lift to the main lodge area, and everything under it is only skiable after a major dump. Last I heard the lower portion was creeking up so no skiing towards the bottom. #2 is a small chair that lifts you from the #3 loading area back to the lodge. Chair #3 has some excellant runs, icy in the morning in the trees but loosens up as the sun hits it.
2. If your into serious skiing go to Baldy, if you want to hang with the crowd go to MT. High.
Read the Mt. High forum to get an idea what is going on there. Also Mammoth Mt.forum has several threads going on right now regarding conditions at Baldy.
