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 […]

Spring Ain’t Got Nothing On Us

The calendar says that Spring is right around the corner, but our winter season is still going strong.  While other SoCal resorts are closing up shop, we along with our sister resort, Bear Mountain, still have plenty of terrain open and we intend to keep you riding as far into Spring as possible.  How do we keep having the most consistent skiing and riding conditions in the region?  The answer is simple: thanks to our snowmaking system and crew we are able to back up our commitment to providing the most reliable and consistent on snow experience to you, our guest.

The Storm Has Arrived

Mother Nature adheres to her own schedule. Luckily our snowmakers stick to theirs. We turned the snowmaking system on at about 2 pm yesterday and it ran through this morning. We will fire it up again tonight to supplement the natural snowfall. That is how we will make sure you’ll find the best conditions for skiing and riding in Southern California at our resorts. There is a saying about not liking Mondays, but from the way tomorrow is shaping up- what’s not to like? Mid-week powder days are the topic of conversation when looking back at a season and this one’s sure to come up later. Forecasters are sticking to their earlier predictions and talking about total accumulations of 10-12 inches by the time things wrap up. Sounds like Monday might be taking the title of Funday this week… Don’t forget you can save money on lift tickets when you […]
