The 2017/18 winter season officially kicked off yesterday (Dec. 8) when we fired up the lifts to the delight of the the snow-starved masses. Huge thanks to everyone who came out to Bear Mountain and Snow Summit yesterday to make Opening Day 2017 one for the books.

As SoCal’s snow capital, BBMR opened with the most terrain, lifts, and runs in the Southland. Snow Summit opened up chairs 1, 2, and 8 with access to Miracle Mile, Summit Run, and the Beginner Area, while Bear Mountain opened up chairs 5, 7, and 9 with access to Park Run, Expressway, The Gulch, Central Park, and Inspiration, plus 26 jib/rail features and 6 snow features (see below for a list of features).
