Bear Mountain offers the largest beginner area and the most innovative and progressive terrain parks in Southern California.

Your ski or snowboard instructors will guide you on a self-paced progression to make learning fun and easy. Professional instructors will work with you until you progress to the next level.

At any level of proficiency, your instructor will show you how to blend your personal capabilities with the requirements of navigating the mountain and its many conditions and personalities.

Skiing and snowboarding creates unforgettable experiences. We encourage beginner skiers and snowboarders to take a series of lessons from our ski and snowboard schools and continue to progress in the sport to build wonderful memories.

All adult lesson packages offer discounted rate for ski or snowboard rental for only $20.
