Big Bear Lake, CA — Our season on the slopes has come to a close—unless we get more snowfall. After nearly six months and over 12 feet of snow, Big Bear Mountain Resorts have wrapped this ski and snowboarding season as of yesterday’s final session at Snow Summit. However, given the possibility of additional snowfall later this week, Snow Summit may re-open for the weekend should we get another substantial snow. Though, should this be the end, Big Bear Mountain Resorts say that this winter season is going down as one of the best in Big Bear’s history. Season passes for next winter are on sale, and “screamin’ deal” discounts are in effect through the end of May; visit for more information.
Update as of April 28: It’s official, Snow Summit Resort is closed for the season and will not re-open for the weekend. The scenic sky chair at Summit will be open for the summer season, starting Friday, May 21 for the Amgen Tour of California which finishes at Snow Summit, and will remain open on weekends leading into the summer months. The Bear Mountain Golf Course is expected to open May 21 as well.

There was still plenty of coverage on the slopes in recent weeks--especially given another foot or so of snow last week--yet sunny skies for spring skiing on Summit's final day.
