Snow Summit’s Rich History


NBC’s Olympic Coverage dug into the history of snowboarding and found themselves in Big Bear.

Always the pioneers of the industry; we were one, if not the first, resort in the nation to welcome snowboarders onto the slopes. In the first years snowboarders were only allowed to ride midweek.   In 1997, we hosted the first winter X games  from (January 30 – February 2, 1997) with 38,000 people in attendance.

Watch the video to find out more about how Snow Summit and Bear Mountain fit in with Shaun White, Todd Richards and snowboarding.
