Tis' the season to be riding, so come double up on good living on more trails, more lifts, and more snow than any resort in Southern California.

Enjoy base depths of 30-48 inches with 18 lifts (including moving carpets) and 24 trails. The Bear Mountain Learning Area, Learning Curve, Cruiser, Sundown, Lower Log Chute, Powder Bowl, and Park Face have just opened this weekend with more runs and chairs scheduled to open throughout the next couple of days.
