After Yesterday’s Snow We Had A Great Night For Snowmaking!!!

Riders this morning will find the best conditions of the season as we open at 9 am! Bear Mountain Resort received 5-7″ of natural snow in the last 36 hours and we had a great window of snowmaking conditions last night! All of this translates to a fantastic surface of machine groomed, packed powder and powder conditions! The graphic above shows which trails and lifts are slated to open next as conditions allow. All of this natural and man made snow means new features and trails opening- in fact we added another bunch of park elements last night bringing our []

The Fun Continues Tomorrow…

We had a blast today making some turns!  We were able to reopen Chair 9 for top to bottom terrain due to the almost foot of the fresh natural snow we received yesterday and also thanks to our world class snowmaking system! Tomorrow is on point to open more terrain as we have already kicked on the snow guns now that the temperatures are dropping! Tomorrow we will have beginner terrain as we plan to open Chair 7 and that also means that we will be starting to host lessons here at our resort! It’s looking like this cold weather []
