5 am Friday Freshie Alert! - 5:09am, 1/30/2015

Friends don’t let friends miss freshies- especially on Fridays! That’s why you get this very quick post to let you know as of 5 am we have between 1-2 inches of fresh snow on the summit with the forecast calling for a chance of 3-4 more throughout the day. Get rolling!

The Calm Before the Storm - 4:56pm, 1/29/2015


We are expecting a storm to roll in for the weekend and it just started to flurry up top. Let’s all “think snow”. We already have the best conditions in SoCal this will only make it better.

Plan ahead for the weekend and purchase your tickets today. If you purchase at least 48 hours in advance you can save money. Call 909-866-5766 or on our website by clicking the “buy tickets now” button at the bottom of the page. Some restrictions apply.

If you have never tried skiing or snowboarding here are some tips to make your first time a little smoother:
– Gather your things the night before: Rushing in the morning to head for the mountains can be disastrous when you have to get to the Ski & Snowboard School. In a hurry, you might forget some things at home, so make a list and check it off as you pack the night before.
– Get plenty of rest the night before: Even though the lesson is on the next day, you’ll get the most out of your lesson by preparing the night before.
– Eat breakfast: You’ve heard the saying, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” well get here early and swing by the Summit Inn.
– Dress appropriately for weather: It’s better to have more clothes than you need. That way, you can peel off the layers as it gets warmer. You’ll want an outer layer that is water resistant.
– Make sure the equipment is sized and fitted properly: When renting equipment, our rental staff are trained to provide the proper gear with the proper size and adjustment. You can even pick up your rentals the night before so on lesson day you have one less thing to do before your lesson.

Always check our activities report for current information on road conditions and snowfall.
