Mt Hood Snowboard Camp is Coming to Bear

After 9 inches of new snow from the recent storm, there’s a renewed energy and attitude in the mountains. Whether you started doing the snow dance correctly or you finally washed the car in the hopes to bring snow, something worked. Keep doing what you’re doing, because another storm is brining snow as soon as Friday night. Your mid-week riding should be great, then the snow storm this weekend and that should make for another great week of sliding followed by High Cascade Snowboard Camp (HCSC) on March 7th and 8th. The camp is open to riders aged 9 to 18 []


It’s Different in Big Bear

  “And another one gone, and another one gone, another one bites the dust.” – Queen We heard that another resort outside of Big Bear closed recently.

Still the Best Conditions in Southern California

We don’t miss an opportunity to make real snow. Last night was one of those opportunities and we’re hoping to blast the snow guns again tonight and tomorrow night.

When we atomize water with high pressure compressed air while the temperature is low and the air is dry, it turns to snow. Natural or man made, it’s real snow. Just like the real snow that will be used to blanket the 16 story ramp and giant kicker for []

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.
