The recent storms have finally passed, but they’ve left behind some great ski conditions in the Big Bear area. If you’ve been waiting for an excuse to pack up for your ski getaway, wait no longer! Check ahead when you come, but the roads are clear with no chains required, so it’s an easy drive to an amazing getaway. Here’s the current report from Bear Mountain:
There are lots of beginner jumps and rails at chair 6, while chair 5 is lined with intermediate jumps, hips, jibs, the halfpipes, and a new wall ride. Over on chair 9 there are more intermediate features as well as lots of advanced and some expert features. Chair 9 has lots of skate style down bars, wall-rides, boxes, and tubes of all sorts. We are definitely enjoying the finest park set-up of the 2012-2013 season. Freestyle camp is a great way to comfortable improve with friendly and talented instructors. We are out of the cold front which allowed for some great snowmaking, and back into classic Southern California sun shine …
And here’s the report from Snow Summit:
Park Staff has also made a few new changes to Westridge, including two skill builder boxes and a mini bank halfpipe at the top of Chair 2. After hitting the new features, you have your choice of lapping Summit Run or continuing through the park, which has a new feature count of 32 jibs and 41 snow features! The snow coverage is excellent and we’re expecting sunny skies all weekend long. Be sure to make reservations if you’re headed up for the holiday to guarantee your spot on the snow.
Snow Summit and Bear Mountain limit the number of lift tickets sold each day to reduce crowding both on the slopes and the lifts. Your tickets will work for either location, and there’ s a free shuttle bus that runs every half hour between the two. They’ve made every provision to make sure you’re able to get in the maximum amount of skiing on your getaway. Be sure to buy your lift tickets ahead of time to make sure they’re not sold out.
