Opening Day Update

Posted On: Nov 11, 2020

The wait is over. Alpine good times are here and we're ready to kickoff the 20/21 winter season at Big Bear Mountain Resort.

Bear Mountain and Snow Summit will open daily to the public on Friday, Nov. 20. View hours of operations.

Single-day lift tickets, rentals, and parking will be available for advance purchase beginning Nov. 16*. Daily lift ticket sales may be limited during this winter, so be sure to book in advance, or grab a 20/21 season pass to get early access at Snow Summit, Nov. 18-19**, and Bear Mountain on Nov. 19**, plus tons of passholder perks all season.

Mother Nature delivered 12-18" of freshies last weekend and snowmaking conditions are prime. Get ready to experience a new kind of winter by reviewing our updated operations guidelines, then grab your gear and come take your first laps of the season.

*Valid season pass, lift ticket, or advance purchase reservation required for gated entry access to Bear Mountain and Snow Summit.
**Valid 20/21 BBMR and Ikon passes only. Passholders who have not received their 20/21 pass by Nov. 17 may pick up their pass at the Snow Summit ticket and Bear Mountain windows. Friends & Family tickets may not be redeemed Nov. 18-19.
