Winter is over. It’s bittersweet for some, but we know that you mountain bikers have been itching to get back to ripping the bike park.
On May 8th we will open the Snow Summit Mountain Bike Park for the 2015 Riding Season. 2015 Mountain Bike Season Passes are available now, and yes we have added a Mammoth/Snow Summit Bike Pass. We will operate weekends (Fri, Sat & Sun) through June 19th when we will begin daily operation. As always there will be hiking, biking (Downhill & Cross-country) and our Scenic Sky Chair that will take you up to the most scenic BBQ in Big Bear: the View Haus.
Stay tuned for more details as we prep our mountain for Summer.
It has been a fun winter and we are saying good bye with a party this weekend before we prep the dirt and open up the Mountain Bike Park for the 2015 Season. There will be FREE lift tickets*, food and drink specials, music, blowout sales in the Sport Shop, a Demo Gear Sale at the Learning Center and of course a bunch of Spring skiing and riding. We will say so long to winter with a party, but the fun doesn’t stop there- it just shifts gears!

This past week we were visited by two storm systems that brought us 16-20 inches of natural snow. During the storm and after, the conditions allowed us to put our state of the art snow making system to good use and winter is back in Big Bear.
As the storm moved on, we have had the best conditions of the season. Lots of snow, sunny skies, perfect temperatures; this is what we live for. When you come to our resorts, you can be confident that you are sliding on the best conditions in Southern California.
Our day session lift tickets give you access to both mountains to offer more terrain, features, lifts, and trails to give you the best value for your money. Get more value and better quality; come to Big Bear Mountain Resorts while the choice conditions are here.
Perhaps it is destiny that we have scheduled some events and activities after the recent storm. Transworld Snowboarding Magazine will hold the TransAm Snowboarding Tour 2015 Finals at Bear Mountain on March 14th. To prepare for this competition, some riders are already practicing to get a leg up on other riders. As we get closer to the TransAm finals, High Cascade Snowboarding Camp from Mt. Hood will hold a 2-day camp this weekend, March 7th and 8th. Participants will receive coaching to improve on their current skills and progress to a higher level. This camp is the place to get serious coaching to get ready for the finals.
Also happening this Sunday the 8th is multi-platinum selling band The Offspring and The Orwells. Your plan for Sunday is to enjoy a morning session followed by the free show with The Offspring as part of KROQ storms Bear Mountain.

We’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 bit.ly/VolcomPBRJ, 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.
