Bear Opens Friday But You Can Ride Summit Before Friday


Bear opens this Friday, November 28th! The weather has been perfect for making real snow and we’ve set up some features. If you wanna ride before Friday, come to our other resort as Snow Summit opens tomorrow, November 26th. What!? You have the Bear Only season pass? That’s cool, your pass is good for Summit tomorrow and turkey day. So your plan for this week will go like this…

Summit – Wednesday
Summit – Thursday
Bear – Friday
Bear – Saturday
Bear – Sunday

Lift Hours of Operation: Fri Nov 28 – Sun Nov 30: 8:30-4:00

After this weekend, Bear will close weekdays to prep more features and more snow, then reopen on weekends. Good news is, starting tomorrow, your Bear Only passes will be good at Snow Summit while Bear is not open, this offer stays until Bear opens full-time.

It’s cool as ever at Bear Mountain

Bear Mountain Opening Friday

Those strong, hot winds you might be feeling? Not here! Bear Mountain has been downright frigid.

Before the Santa Ana winds heat up the LA and Orange County areas, they start as cold air in the mountains. The cool dry air is perfect for snowmaking and we’re busy taking advantage of these great conditions.

We’ve been grinding out fresh snow since last night and we are still planning to open Chair 1 on Friday. What better way to beat the turkey hangover than a weekend of snowboarding?

Since you’re so stoked about all our fresh snow, we have special discounted rates just for you early boarders and skiers:

Early Season Day Half-Day
Adult (22+) $45 $38
Young Adult (13-21) $38 $31
Child $18 $14

Have warmer plans in mind for your holiday weekend? Come visit us at SnowJam in Las Vegas! Saturday and Sunday (the 29th and 30th) we’ll be selling season passes.

Have you heard? Friday is the word……OPENING DAY AT BEAR MOUNTAIN!

Bear Open C

It’s Go Time! Bear Mountains OPENING DAY is scheduled for next weekend.

Bear plans to spin the lifts for the public starting at 8:30 am,

Friday the 28th of November!

As long as we have great snowmaking conditions we can open as planned on Friday! We will be offering early season pricing which will be announced next week…so stay tuned. We will operate from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm Friday, Saturday and Sunday! Just can’t wait until Friday? Snow Summit has plans to be open for the season on Wednesday, November 26th with top to bottom skiing and riding as well as terrain for all ability levels including terrain features.SS PAINT INSTA

While Snow Summit Resort will stay open through the week,  Bear Mountain will re-open again Saturday and Sunday the 6th and 7th of December and will then open for daily operation on Friday, December 12th.

For our much anticipated opening on Friday, we will be operating Chair 1 with hopes to also operate Chair 9 to allow access to the summit. We will have only Intermediate and Advanced Terrain open which will offer small features- the more snow we can make between now and then the greater the number and scope! Ski and Snowboard School will not be offered this weekend at Bear Mountain.

So….don’t eat so much Turkey on Thanksgiving that you nap through opening day on Friday! See you there!
