All You Need to Know as a Pass holder

Explore Seasonal & Year-Round Perks
Your season pass takes the winter fun to a whole new level on and off the mountain. Big Bear Mountain Resort offers 3 pass types: Ski & Snowboard Season Passes (including Ikon Passes), Summit Bike Park Season Passes, and Bear Mountain Golf Course Season Passes. Each pass offers unique seasonal and/or year-round perks and benefits.

Scroll the page to find out all the perks your pass gets you at Big Bear Mountain Resort, including discounts on retail, rentals, dining, special events, activities, and more.
Season passes are different from single- or multi-day lift tickets because they give the owner (pass holder) access to a resort for the duration of the season. Most season passes include a defined level of resort access and/or pass holder benefits that are unavailable to guests that only purchase lift tickets. To accommodate guests of all ages and abilities, the following season passes are valid at Bear Mountain and Snow Summit for the 2022/23 winter season:
  • Bear + Summit Anytime Pass (winter access to Bear Mountain and Snow Summit with no blackout dates)
  • Bear + Summit Midweek Pass (Monday-Friday winter access to Bear Mountain and Snow Summit with limited blackout dates)
  • Dual Season Pass (unlimited access at Bear Mountain and Snow Summit all winter and Summit Bike Park all summer with no blackout dates)
  • Ikon Pass (access to 50 destinations worldwide with no blackout dates)
  • Ikon Base Pass (access to 44 destinations worldwide with no blackout dates at Bear Mountain and Snow Summit)
  • Ikon Sessions Pass (choose from select destinations with a 4, 3, or 2-day customizable pass)


All season passes listed above include night session access at Snow Summit on select dates.

The Ikon Pass offers the opportunity to traverse unique terrain, join a like-minded community, and experience the most iconic mountains with access to over 50 destinations worldwide. For pricing and more information, visit the Ikon Pass page.
