Traditionally the West Resort is the first area to open in Southern California.

West is home to the resort's Children's Learning Center, the Bullwheel Bar and Grill and the Monster Music Stage where fashion shows, movie premieres and live performances are held on a regular basis. Night skiing is also available 7 nights-a-week peak season from 5:00pm to 10:00pm.
The East Resort offers the greatest vertical in Southern California serviced by a single high-speed quad. Its long, groomed, cruising trails make it perfect for carving, but it is also home to the Olympic Bowl, the longest, steepest bump run in the region.
