19/20 Season off to Record-Setting Start
2019 IS SNOWIEST NOVEMBER IN BBMR HISTORY
Big Bear Mountain Resort (BBMR) kicked off the 2019/20 ski and snowboard season with 54” of natural snowfall, making it the snowiest November in resort history. The new November mark eclipses the previous record of 38” set in 1964 and is roughly half of BBMR’s average winter snowfall of 100-110”.
The first snowfall of the season arrived Nov. 20, with 4-6” of freshies at Bear Mountain
and Snow Summit
, followed by a week of prime snowmaking conditions at both mountains. The flakes really started flying on Thanksgiving day, with a 2-day record 48” of snowfall Nov. 28-29 before giving way to clear skies and bluebird conditions for the weekend.
As we head into December, there’s more snow in the forecast, so remember to carry tire chains
and always check snow and road conditions
before heading to the mountains
