More Spring Skiing and Riding Strategy- The Window

Photographers refer to the first and last hour of daylight as the “Golden Hour”.  Spring Skiers and Riders who have been around for a season or two know we have our equivalent- The Window. The Window is that period during the day when things soften up to a near perfect surface but have’t crossed over to late afternoon conditions. Timing is key and The Window may vary from day to day due to sun, temperature, cloud cover- but those who are on it know it’s worth catching. After The Window it’s usually off to the steeps for the rest of the afternoon or down to the deck at the Slopeside Pub to join the crew. Here is a quick re-cap of the important dates we have recently released- We will operate Snow Summit daily from 9 am to 3 pm through Sunday March 29th. Saturday the 21st lifts will spin until 4 pm. Bear […]

March Madness, Spring Skiing and Riding Through At Least April 5th and MTB Season Opens Friday, May 8th…

We have another weekend coming up and that means another BIG event at our resorts. This week it’s the Neff Beach Bash in The Scene at Bear Mountain. The Bear Park Staff is currently building another amazing contest venue in The Scene that will feature hits, jibs, pond skimming and features you have never and may never see again. How can we do this when other Southern California resorts have closed or are just hanging on to a trail or two? We make snow: a lot of snow. Last month we had a great window of snowmaking and completely resurfaced the resorts and brought them back up to speed in a night or two. We could have stopped there saving time and money. We did not, we fired the system up to maximum capacity and made snow in massive amounts: for days. That is why we are more than just […]
