There’s no business like snow business, and sometimes that business involves being patient as Mother Nature makes her way to the mountains. Some years she shows up early. Other years she decides to take the scenic route. With that in mind, Big Bear Mountain Resort has tentatively moved opening day at Snow Summit for Thursday, Nov. 28*, with Bear Mountain scheduled to open the following day, Friday, Nov. 29. When the chairs do start spinning Snow Summit will be open daily while Bear Mountain will operate on weekends-only (Friday-Sunday) until Dec. 20.

Guests with lift ticket, lesson, and/or rental equipment reservations prior to Nov. 28 may reschedule by calling 844.GO2.BEAR**. Learn more.

In the meantime, we’re working hard to get both mountains ready for the season and breaking out our best snow dances to let Mama Nature know we’re ready for her arrival. Keep the stoke going by checking out the latest updates on the Bear Mountain base area renovations, or visit the BBMR online store to score the latest branded apparel.

Get on the hill with 20% savings on all lift tickets when you purchase at least 72 hours in advance.


*Subject to change based on snow and weather conditions.
**Price adjustments may apply based on rescheduled reservation date.
