Opening Day at Bear Mountain!

Today is opening day at Bear Mountain! Chair 9 will be open top to bottom with 4 snow features and 23 jibs. The trails will include Upper¬†Park Run, Expressway, The Gulch, and Lower Park Run. Be aware that the runs off Chair 9 provide intermediate to advanced terrain and features. There will be NO beginner trails or lifts available on opening day as Chair 9 will be the only chair open. Early Season rates are in effect and ticket sales will be limited due to limited terrain. For more information on opening day festivities visit Bear Mountain’s Website.

Ticket windows open at 8am and first chair is 8:30am.

We still do not have an opening date for Snow Summit. We are super close to having the snow coverage we need for skiing and snowboarding but just need a few more nights of snowmaking before we have the quality terrain you expect from Snow Summit. As soon as temperatures are low enough we will be able to continue to make snow and we will announce an opening day. Please continue to check back frequently for more information about snowmaking and opening day.
