LAST CHAIR ALERT


Like all good things, the end of the 20/21 winter season is upon us. Closing day at Bear Mountain and Snow Summit is scheduled for Sunday, April 11.

It’s been an amazing season, with over 140 days of skiing and riding and 139 inches of snowfall, including the snowiest March in over two decades (32 inches). There's still time to take some late-season laps, so grab your gear and come send the season out in style at Southern California's home for alpine good times.

See below for more information about end-of-season operations at Bear Mountain and Snow Summit.
