Our Christmas wishes were answered with 8-12" of new snow overnight, bringing our snow total to 82" for the season. IT'S STILL DUMPING. With new snow this week, plus prime snowmaking conditions, our mountain operations team have been putting in the hours to get both properties 100% open. This weekend we have 127 features, 56 trails, and 27 lifts to enjoy, including Geronimo, aka SoCal’s highest lift-served peak (8,805 feet). Plus, Southern California’s only halfpipe (13ft) is open to the public. Get stoked and watch more snowmaking on closed runs on our live web cams.

We're open daily with lift hours at Snow Summit extended for the holidays. Ski or ride from 8:30AM-8:30PM thru Jan. 4. Night Session ticket* required after 6PM.

A friendly reminder to passholders that there are NO BLACKOUTS this holiday period at Big Bear Mountain Resort. This includes Ikon Pass, Ikon Base Pass, Bear + Summit Anytime Pass, and Bear Mountain Only Pass. Blackouts for the Bear + Summit Mid-Week Pass are 12/26/19-12/27/19; 12/30/19-1/3/20.
*Night Sessions are FREE to all passholders. No redemption needed, just scan your pass.
DRIVE SAFELY: Snow chains are in effect. View road conditions and learn more about snow chains and cables.
