surprise cold snap whipped through Big Bear Lake this week allowing
for unprecedented, early season snowmaking at Bear Mountain and Snow
Big Bear Mountain Resorts opened Bear Mountain today with Chair 5, Central Park Run and half a
dozen terrain features accessible to snowboarders and skiers.
“This is our earliest opening ever in the modern era. With this rare
shift in the weather, we opted to fire up the snowmaking guns a bit
early to give our visitors a sneak peek at the great season ahead,”
said Chris Riddle, Director of Marketing for Big Bear Mountain Resorts.
Special early season rates will apply with discounted lift tickets
available for only $25 for adults, $20 for young adults and $10 for
children. Season pass holders are encouraged to get a head start on the
season. Snowmaking has also begun at Snow Summit with an opening date
to be announced soon.
