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

12-18-14 BM

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 total to 30 jibs and 6 snow features!  Stay tuned for more as we get closer to the weekend!

Thirsty Thursday is just around the corner…

Bear Mountain Fresh Snow

What an amazing day of riding today! We hope everyone enjoyed the fresh powder as much as we did. With all the recent snowfall and the early season pricing (regular season pricing starts on Saturday), tomorrow is a GREAT day to come up.

Tomorrow’s forecast is looking bright and sunny with a high of 39 degrees. Be aware there are still some scheduled delays on Highway 18, so plan accordingly and as always, bring chains!

Bear has the best conditions of the year right now! We are planning to open up Easy Street tomorrow, making it even better for all ability levels to get some riding in.

Bloodys for breakfast? Sounds like the right way to start off a Thirsty Thursday of riding. The Beach Bar opens at 9:30 am and we look forward to seeing your smiling faces there!

We are in the final throes of early season pricing. On the 20th we go up to regular season pricing, so take advantage of the deal while you can.

BM 12-1714 SNOW BLOG

Snow is piling up quickly and since our early update we have had an additional 2-3 inches of natural snow totaling 5-7 inches of freshies! The forecast calls for continued snow throughout the day and temps to stay in the low 30’s!

We will continue to make snow as conditions allow. Skiers and riders may find snowmaking operations in effect on OPEN trails.

Bear Mountain is still offering pre-season rates in these fantastic conditions!
