Day care at 8,300 feet? Kind of, at the Mt Baldy Ski Hut
t was kiddie time at the Sierra Club Ski Hut on Mt. Baldy on Sunday, Nov. 17.
William Dolphin of Ontario, Calif., (below) presided over children who had spent the night. He estimated about 20 to 25 people stayed over at the ski hut that was built in 1937. The parents, he said, were off to bag the peak -- and he stayed behind to watch the little ones and greet visitors who were day hiking.
The hut, officially known as the San Antonio Ski Hut, is accessed via a steep 3-mile hike with 2,200 feet of gain. It costs $15 to stay overnight for Sierra Club members, $20 for non-members.
And along with the hut comes what has to be the highest outhouse (with the best view!) in L.A. County.
