All Lit Up For Night Session

It’s Friday night, also our first night session. This is exciting news, because we normally shut down the chair lifts at 4 pm, but not today. Today, our lifts are operating until 9:30 pm. We’ll do the same tomorrow and night sessions are scheduled for December 25, 2014 all the way through Jan 3, 2015. We’ve also expanded our hours of operation. That means more time to play for the whole family. If you take a family photo or any photo here, try using our hashtag #SnowSummit when you post your pictures. Saturday is looking great with nice weather, open roads with no restrictions, and more chairs opening. Our Beginner Area got bigger, serviced by Chair 4. Chairs 7, 9, and Magic Carpet 1 are now open to give you access to Ego Trip, Cruiser, Skyline, Sundown, Upper Log Chute, and Timber. That should keep the whole family busy all day and into […]

The snowmaking hasn’t slowed down!

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 […]

We are open and in full swing

Happy Thanksgiving from Snow Summit! We are having a great turkey day. The warm weather should soften our base of machine-groomed, hard-packed snow. Don’t let yourself fall into a turkey coma; come by for a quick run down Miracle Mile! Check out this video from opening day yesterday:     Our Scenic Sky Chair opens today on Chair 2 from 10am – 3:30pm (and will run with those same hours through the weekend). The round-trip ride gives you the best view of Big Bear Lake as you ride to the summit and back. If you can’t make it today, don’t worry: Bear Mountain’s season opening party is tomorrow! Chair 1 will be open with more than 20 terrain features to ride. DJ Slipmatt is coming back to provide the music. Stay tuned to the Bear Facebook page for updates about games and activities. Our early season rates are still in effect: […]
