VALID LIFT TICKET, SEASON PASS, OR RESERVATION REQUIRED


This winter, all guests must have a valid lift ticket, season pass, or reservation to receive gated entry access to the Bear Mountain or Snow Summit base areas. To reduce guest wait times and congestion in the base areas, Big Bear Mountain Resort (BBMR) will offer direct-to-lift access for tickets purchased in advance.

Check our How to Access Your Reservation Barcode for details on retrieving your advance purchase reservation, then see below for info on how to properly access the Bear Mountain and Snow Summit base areas.

SEASON PASSES & LIFT TICKETS

Guests with 20/21 BBMR and Ikon Pass season passes or advance purchase lift ticket reservations must check in at designated entry points prior to entering the Bear Mountain and Snow Summit base areas. To minimize crowding and promote social distancing, we recommend checking in at the access points near the Adventure Academy at Snow Summit and the staircase between the Silver Mountain Eatery and Big Bear Sports at Bear Mountain.
