Bear Mountain is the only SoCal resort open today, and it’s offering spring savings to skiers and boarders who frequent the local competition.

An e-blast from Bear this morning said that everyone with a season pass for the current season to Mountain High, Mt. Baldy and Snow Valley can bring it to the Big Bear Lake resort today for 50 percent off the price of a lift ticket. The pass must be shown at the ticket window to score the savings.

Besides pointing out that the competition is closed today, the communication also was enthusiastic about the conditions at Bear, where the slopes are covered in 14 to 28 inches of snow: “Thanks to our incredible top of the line snowmaking system and nearly inexhaustible water supply from Big Bear Lake, we still have plenty of snow!”
