There is Always Something Happening at BBMR - 5:47pm, 1/29/2015

01-29-15SSSummerWe’ve been experiencing bluebird days this past week and it’s been really nice on the slopes. When you feel the warmth of the sunshine while you take turns on some of the best snow, you know this is why we do this in Southern California.

We move into this week preparing for another competition about to land at Bear Mountain. Peanut Butter and Rail Jam (PBRJ) makes a stop as they tour North America looking for amateur snowboarders to take to the finals in April with a purse of $15,000. If you plan on entering, you can pre-register here, but you’ll need to practice.

Practicing at Bear Mountain might give you a slight home court advantage. Carry on with the practice sessions and good luck to all the riders.

The National Weather Service predicting some precipitation heading our way. This is good news if the temperatures are low enough, we could get new snow. It’s already started to flurry at the top. This will make our conditions even better. They are already the best in SoCal.
