A weekend program for riders and skiers with a freestyle influence.

Big Bear Mountain Resort offers programs for skiers and snowboarders ages 6 and up. Whether you’re looking for a part-time program to develop your skills or aspire to join a U.S. or National Team, Team Bear has everything you’ll need to reach your goals. 



Designed for any ability level rider/skier that wants to have a fun, structured, coaching based experience. The coaching and riding will consist of fundamental skills, all the way up to advanced and expert skills. There will be equal amounts of freeriding/freestyle.

This program is great for someone wanting to gain skills in the overall riding/skiing, with an influence in freestyle, and is not looking to compete.


Designed for the rider/skier that aspires to compete in USASA and comparable events in one or more events, such as boarder/skier cross, halfpipe, slopestyle, rail jams, snowboard slalom, and snowboard GS. The coaching will cover fundamentals, up to expert skills, with a heavy influence in competition level coaching tailored to each athlete for specific events, including mind and body on-hill training.

Additional costs will apply for USASA events. Event fees and travel costs will be the parent’s responsibility during competitions. This will be for any competitive event, including regional events, along with USASA Nationals held in Copper, Colorado. During such events, the daily wage for the coach will be covered under the program price. Coaches will not be responsible for transportation of any participants at any time.
