SS BLOG 2-25-15

All good things must come to an end, but if there has to be an end we might as well go out with style, right? This coming weekend we’re inviting you to party with us and we’re offering some great discounts and free giveaways. Let’s celebrate a great season as we party on the deck at Slopeside with DJ Mondo on Sunday, March 29th, the final day of the 14/15 season.

Ride with us on Saturday and you will receive a free ticket to ride Sunday. Come with a buddy on Sunday and get “Buy One Get One Free” lift tickets. Either way you win. Slopeside Pub will feature $5 Draft Beer Specials on Sunday as well, plus $5 Wings & Pizza.

Looking ahead to next year and in need of some new equipment? Our rental shop is having a Blowout Sale on Used Demos with prices as low as $99. No set of skis would be complete without the accompanying snow gear, so swing by our Sport Shop and receive 40% on most retail items (not valid with other offers).

Our Spring Season Pass Sale has just started, this is the weekend to pick up your pass for the 15/16 Winter Season and party with us while you’re at it.

Get unlimited access to Mammoth Mountain, Bear Mountain, Snow Summit and June Mountain for just $689 with your Cali4nia Pass.  If you purchase your Cali4nia Pass prior to 6th of April you will also receive a $100 resort credit.

You’ll find all of the 2015/16 passes we sell at the lowest rates they will be offered, ever. So, we will still see you for our traditional kick-off to the season, Hot Dawgz and Hand Rails, but you’ll have an extra big smile on your face knowing you got the best deal possible on your pass.

Spring is a great time to give skiing or snowboarding a try- you can focus more on the lesson- not on the cold! We’ve moved all lessons to the largest beginner area in Southern California, our sister resort Bear Mountain. Our qualified instructors make learning easy and fun.

Here’s are reviews from Facebook from our guests:

Leonard Martinez — 5 star Always have a great time at Summit. Hats off to Alan Dosa, best ski instructor. He had my son carving turns in no time. Staff is very helpful, especially the rental shop folks. :-)

Shari Dunbar — 4 star Great place to learn, organized system, instructors work well with children. Could have spent more time, will go back for sure!

Our Season Pass Sale Is Underway… - 9:41am, 3/23/2015


Now is the time to take the next step toward unlocking the best snow in California for the 2015/16 Season. Get your Cali4nia Adult Pass for just $689* – that’s right, we’re holding the price to give you the same great low rate as last year.  Although this season we’re going to add a little something special to sweeten the deal for you: Purchase by April 6th and we’ll give you $100 in resort credit* for the 2015/16 season.  This pass unlocks unlimited access to California’s best snow at four mountains: Mammoth, Bear Mountain, June Mountain and here at Snow Summit.
Bear + Summit Anytime Adult Passes are $499 giving you unlimited access to Bear Mountain and Snow Summit.  For just an additional $190, the Cali4nia Pass gets you even more + $100 resort credit when you purchase by April 6th, so that means you’ll really only be spending an additional $90 to go to Mammoth as many times as you want next season.  Even if you just go to Mammoth once a year you’re getting a great deal!

We will not roll back prices at Hot Dawgz & Hand Rails in the fall, so be sure to buy now to lock in the lowest price on your pass.
