While You Get Rain, We Get Snow

IMG_9892

Head for the mountains because what you can’t see from the flatlands is the snow storm in the mountains. Lots of snow came down today, big flakes, little flakes, fluffy flakes, slow falling flakes, we are getting all kinds of flakes and it’s still snowing.

As we get into the mid-week sessions, pow days are just ahead. This is the opportunity to get on the lift again and again because lift lines are shorter during mid-week which calculates to more laps per hour and your day session lift ticket is also good at our sister resort Snow Summit. Your ticket value gets even better with discounts if purchased at least 24 hours in advance, up to $15 in savings. Call 909-866-5766 or click the button below and save.

You can learn to ski or ride at the biggest beginner area in SoCal. Our instructors are trained to make learning easy and fun for all levels from beginner to advanced. On the other hand, if you’re looking to learn in a snowboard camp program or maybe work on polishing up for the Transworld TransAm contest, you’re at the right place and the right time is this weekend, March 7th and 8th.

High Cascade Snowboard Camp (HCSC) is open to riders aged 9 to 18 years. The camp includes the following:
Two (2) lift tickets (For participant only)
Access to the HCSC Private Park
Authorized Awesome™ HCSC Coaches and Counselors
Activities, Workshops & Clinics
Daily resort lunch vouchers and dinner
Visits from local Signature Session™ pros
GoPro video review with coach
Session closing pizza party
All that and you don’t have to travel to Mt. Hood? Camp space is limited, so sign up early at bit.ly/1z9oIfn.

It Snowed All Day And Still Going

IMG_9917

It’s been coming down since 9 am and it looks great up here. It looks like much of the same for Monday. This current storm will move along to be replaced by another system hitting our mountains by Monday night. Best case, glass is half full scenario, up to 2 feet of snow in some parts. More terrain, more open trails, more features than any other resort in SoCal and now more snow, Bear is definitely the place to be. It’s the place Boy Scouts of America (BSA) chose to have their Scout Day.

BSA is one of the largest values-based youth development organizations in the country. It’s a program for our young people to build character, experience responsibilities of participating, citizenship, and personal fitness. When an activity lesson is completed, the Scout is awarded a “merit badges,” often times decorated on the sash of a Scout’s uniform. Earning merit badges gives Scouts the chance to get involved in activities and learn things that prepare them for life. The number of snow sport merit badges earned is just 10% of badges like camping or cooking. Those activities are much more accessible to Scouts everywhere in comparison to snow sports. Lucky for BSA of SoCal, they have our support.

Saturday, March 7th is The 11th Annual Scout Day at Bear. This is a chance for Scouts to earn their Snow Sport merit badge. Scouts and family members can enjoy a day of learning, earning merit badges, and discounted lift tickets. Reservations are required. For more information on how you can register your troop call Group Sales at 909-584-0220 or email us at sales@bearmtn.com. Thank you BSA for choosing the resorts that offer the most terrain in SoCal.

Not a Scout but you still want a break on lift tickets? Discounts for all lift tickets purchased at least 24 hours in advance. Call 909-866-5766 or click the button below and save.

One, Two, and a Third Storm to Hit Our Mountains

BM BLOG 2-28-15 PM

It snowed a bit last night and it is coming down this morning. We are expecting more snow all day as the low pressure travels closer to our mountains. It looks like more snow showers on Monday with periodic breaks. After the two storm systems have left us snowed and done, we’ve heard a prediction of up to 2 feet of snow accumulation in some areas. Building our inventory of snow only helps to keep the season going.

One storm after another, then another? KROQ storms the mountains with performances by The Orwells (toured with Arctic Monkeys) and The Offspring (sold over 36 million albums worldwide). Come Monday after the show, you don’t want to be the guy that’s not part of the conversation while everyone else raves about the party with The Offspring. Make plans now for Sunday, March 8th, ride in the morning then at noon, grab an ice cold tall can and it’s showtime! Discounts for all lift tickets purchased at least 24 hours in advance. Call 909-866-5766 or click the button below and save.
