About Us:

1924:
 - Jack Northrop, world-renowned aviation designer, builds the first "sling lift" in San Bernardino Mountains.
 - Prior to its construction, people were forced to hike up the hill in order to ski down.
 - Skis weighed nearly 20 pounds and were roughly eight feet long.
 - Originally named "Fish Camp" for the pond located nearby (located at the top of Chair 5); the hill quickly became a favorite among the few locals who knew how to ski.

1937:
 - Norwegian ski jumper, Sverre Engen, opens "Fish Camp" as a commercial ski area complete with food concession and ski rentals.
 - Under a "Ski Permit" granted by the U.S. Forest Service, Engen constructed a small lodge and remodeled the sling lift for the increasing number of visitors.

2000:
 - Snow Valley installs the latest technology snowmaking fan guns, which replace compressed air type snowmaking guns.
