Santa’s awesome video at Bear Mountain

The Santa Sighting video from Bear Mountain Ski Resort is a real hoot! I don’t know who the boarder is, but he does a great job. Very Merry! I can’t even ride the rails and this guy is catching Xmas packages while doing stunts. Amazing!

Maybe Santa brought you those new boards, bindings or boots. Whatever, it’s a great time to hit the local resorts to try out your new stuff. 

Bear Mountain is reporting mostly sunny skies with a high of 42; cool enough to keep those packed powder runs and that light, fluffy snow in the trees.

Sister resort, Snow Summit also reports an amazing blue bird day with excellent snow conditions and mostly sunny skies.  Nearly every run is open at both resorts. Night session is every night through Jan. 1 from 3 to 9:30pm. 

Mountain High reports that all THREE resorts are now open with plenty of terrain for every level of skier and snowboarder. Thanks to recent snowfalls and good snowmaking temps, the mid-winter conditions are great and all roads are open and clear.

Wrightwood was expecting mostly sunny skies with cool temps in the mid 30s and dry North breezes. Anyone trying to avoid the crowds should head over to the North resort where they will find 70 acres of lower-level terrain perfect for kids and families. Your single lift ticket is good at all three areas.

Bluebird days at Bear Mountain, Snow Summit and Mountain High

Bear Mountain says skiing today is going to be amazing. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies, freshly groomed packed
powder runs and features.

Yesterday’s storm gave them up to two feet of new snow. Holiday rates are now in effect.

Snow  Summit reopened today with 1 to 2 feet of fresh powder. Nearly the entire mountain is open with plenty of wide open runs for beginner to advanced skiers and snowboarders.

it’s hours today and Friday are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Night sessions are
every night beginning Saturday through New Year’s Day. Holiday rates are also in effect.

Hwy 330/18 the front
way to Big Bear is going to be closed for a while, but there are still two more ways to Big Bear. Take Hwy 38 through Redlands, chains are required on all vehicles except 4WD and AWD with snow tires, or go Hwy 18 the back way through Lucerne Valley, no chains required however chains are currently required in Big Bear.

Mountain High in Wrightwood has received two feet of new snow. The entire West Resort will be open today with the exception of Woodworth Gulch.

Tickets are still at regular season rates but will go to Holiday Rates on Dec 25th.

Night Sessions will take place tonight from 5 to 10 p.m. Off tomorrow.
Then back on Christmas Day through the remainder of the holidays.

The resort is evaluating the East and North resorts for a possible
opening. There is a very good chance the North Resort will open for
skiing and snowboarding in the next several days.

The East Resort is
great from the top down to about half way. The bottom portion still
needs quite a bit of work.
