Hopefully everyone has recovered from NYE and is ready for more good times at Bear Mountain. The first snow of 2011 is forecasted for today into tomorrow. With 80+ features, a chance of fresh snow and excellent mid-winter conditions Bear is the spot to kick off your new year the right way…..with some shredding!
We recommend using Hwy 38- (through Redlands) or Hwy 18 (the back way through Lucerne Valley). Hwy 18 thru Lucerne and Hwy 38 thru Redlands are OPEN with CHAINS required on all vehicles except 4WD and AWD vehicles with snow tires.
Hwy 330 is closed below Running Springs. There is a detour through Lake Arrowhead with chains required however this route is much longer and not recommended.
All vehicles must always carry chains when traveling in the mountains during winter months.
