After last weekend's dump of 2-3 feet, the sun's out and the surface conditions are all-time at Bear Mountain and Snow Summit. Base depths are up to 38-54 inches and the clouds are rolling in for the weekend, with a chance for fresh snow in the forecast. This Saturday join us for the Power 106 Party on the Mountain at Bear Mountain. The event will be hosted by on-air personality Bryhana and feature a performance by Kid Ink. Admission is FREE (all ages). PARENTAL DISCRETION ADVISED. 

Bear Mountain and Snow Summit are sporting 100% open terrain and stellar surface conditions, so come enjoy the best skiing and riding in SoCal.

Park Updates 
Southern California’s only halfpipes are open to the public. Check out the 4-foot pipe, accessible from off Chair 6, near Learning Curve, or the 13- and 18-foot pipes, accessible from chairs 2, 5, and 9, near Pipeline.

Road Conditions 
Remember to check road conditions before you head out to see if snow chains are required as conditions can change rapidly. There are 3 ways up and 3 ways home, so plan ahead and be sure to check our road conditions page with real-time updates provided by Caltrans. 

Your Season to Learn 
Big Bear Mountain Resort is also home to the largest beginner areas and best learning programs in Southern California, with lessons for all ability levels (ages 4+). Whether you prefer a private lesson or learning in a group setting, we’ve got you covered. Lessons can fill up fast, so book yours in advance online to make sure you get the day, time, and instructor you want. 

If you’re headed to Bear Mountain, check out the all-new Adventure Academy. The facility, which opened in December, pairs with the Snow Summit Adventure Academy that opened in 2017 to help families with kids ages 4-12 get on the slopes faster. Grab a hand-crafted coffee or signature cocktail from Shred, Shaken & Stirred while your little one learns from the best instructors in the business, or swing by at lunchtime for an artisan wood fire pizza from Flatbottom Dough.
