Date / Time
Mar 31 / 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM


Grab some friends, break out your best retro gear, and make your way to Bear Mountain on Saturday, March 31, for BEAR BREAK 2018.

We’re bringing Bear Mountain’s signature “send it” style to spring break with a modified mogul race, tug-of-war competition, 40-foot pond skim, and Best Dressed contest, plus tons of prize giveaways and live music.

If you’re all about the après, come play some big kid backyard games – colossal cornhole, larger-than-life ladder golf, and big boy beer pong – on the sundeck and enjoy live performances by the Wheeland Brothers and Tomorrows Bad Seeds.
