EXPERIENCE A NEW KIND OF WINTER


This winter, operations at BBMR will differ from previous seasons. All guests must have a valid lift ticket, season pass, or advance purchase confirmation to receive gated entry access to the Bear Mountain or Snow Summit base areas this winter. BBMR products and services* (including lift tickets, Grizzly Ridge Tube Park tickets, and day parking), equipment rentals, and lessons will be available for advance purchase beginning Monday, Nov. 16. Daily lift ticket sales may be limited this season due to reduced operating capacities, therefore we highly recommend purchasing lift tickets, lessons, and equipment rentals in advance to guarantee resort access during your visit. Check out our updated Health & Safety Guide before planning a trip.

SEASON PASSHOLDERS


20/21 passholders who don't receive their pass yet before Opening Day will still be able to ski or ride when the chairs start turning. Just stop by the Bear Mountain or Snow Summit or ticket windows to pick up your pass.

If you have not received your 20/21 season pass by Dec. 19, it was most likely due to an unfinished passholder profile on IkonPass.com, missing photo, or incomplete Release of Liability form. Please go to IkonPass.com or stop by the ticket windows during your next visit to complete your passholder registration.
