The snowmaking hasn’t slowed down! - 12:11pm, 12/14/2014

Snow Summit snowmaking

Sunday is rounding out an excellent weekend here at Snow Summit. The 8-11″ of natural snow have given us the jumping off point we needed to start making snow all over the mountain. Skiers and riders today are no doubt noticing the snow machines going nonstop on both sides of the resort. The fresh snow is going right on top of our 10-20″ base of machine-groomed, hard packed powder and should be setting us up to open more runs this week!

Bear Mountain has taken advantage of the great conditions. Not only are they officially open for daily operations, but their ski and snowboard school is open, they’ve opened yet another run and have 21 “Bear Built” features today.

There’s even more good news on the horizon: more snow is expected next week! If you’re in the mood for a white Christmas, Snow Summit is the place to be.

Tomorrow expect to see Chairs 1 and 2 open servicing Miracle Mile and Summit Run, as well as Chair 8 and Magic Carpet #3 on the beginner’s slope.

Gearing Up for Tomorrow! - 5:57pm, 12/13/2014

12-13-14 Fresh Snow-6What a fantastic day here at Snow Summit! We can finally say that winter is here!

We started the day off operating Chairs 1 & 8 and were pleasantly surprised half way through the day when we were also able to open Chair 2 servicing the upper portion of Summit Run! This was made possible thanks to our world class snowmaking system and the chilly weather we are experiencing after all of yesterday’s natural snowfall! Yesterday we receive 8-11 inches of new snow and after making snow most of the night and into the morning, the skiing & riding today was on beyond the best we have experienced yet this season!

Tomorrow we hope to open more terrain as we have already kicked on the snow guns now that evening is upon us! It is our goal to get lower Summit Run open for your riding pleasure by tomorrow, and if this cold weather continues we expect to be opening more and more terrain as we lead up to Christmas! So if you’re dreaming of a white Christmas, make your plans to come up to Big Bear for the holidays!

Early Season Ticket Prices are still in effect, so get on the slopes before December 20th to save big!
