The Right Place Is Here, The Right Time Is Now

It’s not just about being in the right place at the right time, but knowing what to do when you find yourself there. We are experiencing some great conditions this season, meaning that this is the right place and the right time is now… We have the best snow in all of California. Last night was the fourth night in-a-row we were able to make real snow.

Tomorrow you can expect freshly groomed packed powder. We are so stoked when we hear from professional riders that have been all over the world and when they get here, they tell us that we’re “crushin’ it”. We’ve set up “Bear Built” features all over the place with a total count of 140. It’s like a jib and snow feature buffet.

TRANSWORLD Snowboarding says, “Bear Mountain, one of the best snowboard parks in the world.” ¹

The Winter X Games bring a higher level of excitement when you get to ride the best snow. Just one look at The Scene and you can feel the energy. The two-time Olympic gold medalist, Shaun White started where many young riders get their start, the USASA. The X Games have these local kids all amped up for their competition in the USASA Slopestyle happening tomorrow on Hidden Valley trail. The event will be done by noon and these same features used for the competition will be open for you to ride. In fact, some of the features in The Red Bull Plaza were once used for Hot Dawgz & Hand Rails.

Slopestyle events will have riders hit rails, jumps and other features in the terrain park. Scoring is based on originality, amplitude, and quality of tricks.

If watching isn’t your thing, you can stomp on the best snow in Cali until we close at 4:30pm. Just because we close doesn’t mean you have to stop. Your day session lift ticket is good until 6:00 pm at our sister resort Snow Summit. The night session goes until 9:30pm and your day session ticket can be upgraded for just $15.
