Big Pines is an unincorporated community in Los Angeles County, California, United States. It is in the Angeles National Forest, San Gabriel Mountains, and is the highest elevation on the San Andreas Fault. Located in the Swarthout Valley, which was itself first settled in 1851, Big Pines began as a year-round recreation area built by Los Angeles County in 1924.[1] It is a popular ski area close to Los Angeles, as it has a history of significant snowfall, even as late as May.[2][3] It also hosts Mountain High Ski Resorts. Big Pines is bordered on the east by Wrightwood, California.
