It’s cool as ever at Bear Mountain

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 []


Completely Rebuilding Our Park

With over 6 days of snowmaking and a few natural snowfalls including 1 to 2 new inches overnight our conditions have drastically improved! All this new snow means we can rebuild our park. Expect big changes top-to-bottom throughout the week including a new double jump line on lower Park Run that is already open. Other new features include an up box to tank tap, an all new massive quarterpipe wall, and new jibs everywhere. Basically, the People’s Park is the best it has been all year! Make plans to check out Dos Equis’ Air Bag they have got set up []


It’s About Time!

It’s hard to believe the first storm of the season hit us yesterday and only brought us 2 inches! We have been lucky in many ways and have remained nearly unaffected by the snow drought. Sure we’d lovvveeee more snow (pow turns and tree riding? Yes, please) but our snowmaking and park crew have been killing it when it comes to keeping the coverage in the park good and the features on point. This recent snowstorm brought us only a few inches but it sure has been enough to really amp up the coverage to midwinter conditions and brought with []


Snowmaking Gods

All hail our snowmaking system and snowmakers! Here’s some midweek news your ears want to hear. Our Snowmaking crew deserves some recognition for all their hard work lately. They’ve been killin’ it with making snow the last few days. This snow drought is not stopping us from making snow and keeping the best snow conditions around. Mother Nature has been quite stingy lately but at least she has been giving us the perfect temperatures and humidity to make snow, which will make awesome conditions this holiday weekend. Not only is Snow Summit bringing back night riding sessions this Friday but they have []


Storm System Rolling Through

Cold weather has hit Big Bear and we are taking full advantage of these great snowmaking conditions. Our system has been making snow for over 24 hours now and we plan to continue as long as conditions permit. Snowmaking plus the 3-4 inches of fresh snow we received yesterday means more runs and features! At this time all roads are open, for chain restriction information visit our snow report or Caltrans website.   We now have Chair 4 open accessing Exhibition and next on our list is the Halfpipe and Showtime. If you haven’t seen the park lately there has []
