Enjoy the Fresh Snow This Holiday Weekend!

Big Bear, Ca, February 17, 2012, 4:00pm – The recent snowfall the Big Bear Valley received has created great conditions for this holiday weekend.  With 14-16 inches of fresh snow on the slopes and surrounding mountainside, skiers, snowboarders and snowshoers are in for a great weekend.  Nearly all the runs are open at both Snow Summit and Bear Mountain, and Big Bear Mountain Resorts is Southern California’s “Learn to Ski & Ride Headquarters,” so those needing lessons or a refresher will find excellent classes and instructors.  Outdoor enthusiasts who are interested in going snowshoeing, can stop by the Discovery Center for guided tours, or they can go to Goldsmith’s Boardhouse, North Shore Trading Company or Bear Valley Bikes to rent snowshoes.  Motorists are advised to drive with care as roads may be icy or slippery, and are reminded that there are three routes in and out of the valley for your driving needs.  Highway 38 is on the east side of the valley and often is an easier route to take when departing on holiday weekends, as there is less traffic.  Highway 18 down through Lucerne Valley is also another way down the mountain, and is ideal for those traveling back to the desert communities, Arizona, or Nevada.  And as always carry chains in your vehicle as it is the law that you have them in your car when...

Best Snow Anywhere!

Snow– we have plenty of it here at Snow Summit and Bear Mountain! Despite the lack of snow in other California regions, Big Bear  Mountain Resorts has been fortunate with snowmaking and early season snowfalls providing snow depths of 1-3 feet, very good snow coverage and nearly 100% open runs- that’s almost 438 skiable acres! While the weather has been relatively mild in the valleys and beaches, we have been making snow the past couple of nights up here at Snow Summit and Bear Mountain and the snow conditions are better than you might think. Enjoy the wide open runs and the most terrain park features in So Cal. Visit www.bigbearmountainresorts.com for...
