Easy Drive Up the Mountain

Expect sunny skies today as you make that easy drive up the mountain. If you left the house early, there’s less traffic and you might have caught the sunrise. All roads to Big Bear are open with no restrictions and the surface is freshly machine groomed. Our Performance/Demo Ski and Board Sale starts today at 9 am. This is a great opportunity to upgrade your skis or snowboard for a fraction of the price. The Learning Center will be ready to show you a variety of used snowboards and skis. Prices on skis and snowboards start as low as $99. Bring your March Madness Special and enjoy another day of fun in the sun. Remember to bring your sun block if a goggle tan is not a part of your spring look. The $99 from your March Madness Special will be applied towards any 2015/2016 winter season pass starting Monday the 23rd. […]

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.

Spring Skiing and Riding Strategy

There is a reason Spring skiing and riding holds such a mystique among our guests both young and old. Warm, sunny days and the chance to pull out some vintage ski wear and costumes (we have seen teletubbies, pokemon, cows and kangaroos just to name a few) add an extra air of fun and things take on a very social atmosphere. Afternoons on the deck with a beverage or two become the standard closer to a day of good times. When it comes to snow, Spring can be epic but it requires some attention to your equipment to get the most from the slopes. It is very important to have the “right wax” and texture on your board or skis. Wax is pretty simple- it helps the ski/board glide, in the Spring you glide on a film of water. The texture is very important because it guides the drops and […]
