Make Snow Summit Yours! - 11:46am, 3/10/2014

This Monday when everyone you know is sitting in their offices or classrooms YOU could be skiing or snowboarding! Think about how jealous you’ll make them when you post a selfie from the chair lift or Miracle Mile. Midweek riding is the BEST. There are no lines standing between you and unlimited laps on the snow. Better yet… you can ski for the rest of the season for FREE. When you purchase a season pass for next winter you can ride the rest of this season for free. For more information on our biggest season pass sale in 20 years and how you can get a free lift ticket for a friend click HERE.

New Midweek Hours: Beginning tomorrow Tuesday March 11th, both Snow Summit and Bear Mountain will be open from 9am-4pm Monday-Fridays and 8:30am-4pm on weekends. We are also lowering our prices for this upcoming weekend to the mid-week rate! That’s a savings of up to $15!

Perfect Spring Time Weather - 5:09am, 3/9/2014

Come spend your Sunday with us on the slopes! We still have the best snow conditions in Southern California. Don’t let the weather keep you from the slopes because it is perfect Spring time riding right now. The early bird gets the worm. Come up early and see if you can be the first one on the chair for what could be the best lap of the day! First chair, groomers, and less people on the run make it all worth it to wake up early. End your weekend right.

Best Spring Skiing Around! - 5:15am, 3/8/2014

Come up and take advantage of some of the most fun (and best) snow conditions in So Cal! We’ve got classic spring skiing (who needs the beach when you can ski/ snowboard in a t-shirt!) plus no lift lines and great deals on season passes. Did you know if you purchase your season pass for next year you can ride for the rest of this season for free and lets be honest… based on the laws of probability we can pretty much bet next year’s snow will be better than this year’s!

Stop by the Bear Bottom Lodge today and support the Snow Summit Race team in their annual Victor Alvarez Silent Auction. The bidding is open from 10am to 3pm and they’ve got tons of great items to bid on including:

  • Surfboards
  • Wakeboards
  • Skateboards
  • Getaways to destinations such as: Desert Hot Springs, Palm Desert, Lake Tahoe, San Diego, Anaheim (with Disneyland tickets included!)
  • Snowboard gear including boots and bindings
  • Outerwear from brands such as: Roxy, Liquid Force, Volcom and 686
  • Sporting event tickets (Clippers, etc.)

Remember: the last night session of the season is TONIGHT from 3-9:30pm so grab your friends and ski/ ride under the light for the last time this season!




Spring Time Skiing Is Prime Time - 5:05am, 3/7/2014

The spring time skiing is prime right now! Cruise on up today before the weekend crowds and get some laps in and have the place to yourself. Snow Summit and Bear Mountain are still on top with SoCal’s snow conditions right now. So ditch the beach for a day and come hang out with us on the slopes. If you have a season pass to Big Bear Mountain Resorts, bring a friend and they will receive 50% off of a lift ticket. All you have to do is bring yourself, your season pass, your friend and good vibes to Guest Services and your friend will get their ticket. It’s as easy as that! Start your weekend off right with friends, sun, snowbunnies and the slopes!
