Buckhorn Ski Lodge
What is Buckhorn?
Buckhorn Ski Lodge is a private remote cabin located in the San Gabriel National Monument in the Angeles National Forest. The lodge is managed and maintained by a cooperative community of members and has been around since the 1940's! A perfect secluded getaway year round, yet only 40 miles north of Los Angeles.
The Buckhorn Ski Lodge is truly off the grid. There is no main electricity, no cellphone signal and no flush toilets. However, it has a huge sleeping area, fresh water fed by a spring, a propane gas tank to power hot water and the stove, and a fireplace. Lighting comes from LED bulbs powered by batteries, which get recharged by solar power, and when we need more, there's a generator. It's not a 5-star resort but should more than meet the needs of most.
Things to Do
Buckhorn is made for the outdoor enthusiast! In the winter, skin up and backcountry ski the slopes, snowshoe, cross country ski, hit the chairlift at nearby Mt. Waterman or sled down the bunny hill. In the rest of the year there's no shortage of recreational activities from hiking, biking and fishing to rock climbing and frisbee golf. Looking to relax instead? We still have you covered! Warm your bones by the fireplace or just sit on the porch with a beverage and a book while the sun sets.
