About the Ski Resort

The Club is a backcountry/off trail resort for downhill skiers, snowboarders, and cross-country skiers. Our dwelling is a frozen in time 1950's ski lodge that's run along the lines of a co-op. The lodge is a two story rustic hut that sleeps up to 40 people with full kitchen facilities. Buckhorn has a gripper tow that gives you access to over 40 acres. Low cost memberships are available. Once members learn the open & close up procedure, they have year round use of the lodge. We have pool parties, beach parties, canoe trips on the Colorado River, hikes to a 60' Kodak moment waterfall, low cost trips to Mammoth, a yearly weeklong trip to a resort out of state, and whitewater rafting on the Kern River. The rafting equipment is supplied by members, so members only pay for camping and meals (contact us for more details). To try out our resort costs $5 per adult and $2 per child, and you must sign a waiver of liability. This cost includes your lodging & lift-ticket.

Ski Resort directions

Travel north on the 5 freeway. You will pass the junction of the 5, 101, and 10 freeways, but stay on the 5. Next you will pass the Harbor freeway 110. At this point, start looking for Route 2 to La Canada. Go north on the 2, which eventually goes to an off ramp. Turn left onto the Angeles Crest Highway. The Lodge is about 37 miles from this point. When you pass the Newcomb Ranch restaurant/bar you have got about 7.6 miles to go. Next, watch for the sign marking Cloud Burst Summit, elevation 7018 feet and you'll be 1.3 miles away. Start looking for the Buckhorn Campground sign. At this point, you're mile away. Now look for the Buckhorn Ski Club sign on your right. If it's summer, drive through the gate. If there's a fair amount of snow on the ground, park across the street in the parking strip. REMEMBER WE'RE BETWEEN WATERMAN & SNOWCREST SKI RESORTS. Just some more help: Look at the small white highway signs, placed every couple of hundred feet on both sides of the road-- the ones with the little reflectors. The Lodge is just past the 58.33 mile marker. If you get to any sign higher than 58.45 you have passed it. If you're coming from the Riverside area, please note that the road from Mountain High is closed when the snow gets too deep.
