Fresh Snow Spurs

Full-Service Seasonal Schedule‚Äč


 Big Bear Lake’s Winter officially arrived this week, but recent snowfall means the start of daily Winter season activities at Bear Mountain. Fresh powder from Mother Nature a few days ago, along with more expected to fall this week, means that skiers and snowboarders can hit the slopes with excitement.

“We are so stoked that we received more snow than expected from the last storm,” said Rio Tanbara, Bear Mountain Marketing Director. “With our world class snow-making and storms scheduled to hit the area this week, Big Bear Mountain should be your Southern California winter destination.”

The terrain is in very good shape thanks to the recent flurry of snow in the Big Bear Lake area. “Our guests will be extremely pleased with what they see and experience here,” said Chris Riddle, Big Bear Mountain Resorts Vice President of Marketing. “Our team has worked hard to create and maintain more of what skiers and snowboarders are looking for – more jumps, more jibs, more snow and more fun.”

Bear Mountain hours of operation will be from 9:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M.  Monday through Friday and 8:30 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. on weekends and holidays. 

Chairs 1, 6, 7 and 9 will be operating for beginner, intermediate and advanced riders with plenty of terrain features available. Five trail runs are currently available with more expected to open soon.

Lessons, rentals, retail and food service are open and available for Bear Mountain guests during regular hours of park operation.

 Snow-making efforts will continue this week to keep Bear Mountain in peak condition for skiers and snowboarders.

 Season passes, individual tickets, group tickets and lift tickets are available now. Guests should plan on arriving early, as ticket sales may be limited. For more information or to purchase passes, call 909-866-5766 or visit: For the 24-hour snow report, call 800-BEARMTN (800-232-7686).
