Whether you spend the day, weekend, or week you will find tremendous value by visiting one or both of Big Bear Mountain Resorts. What you really get is two mountains in one – at a single rate. One interchangeable lift ticket is valid at both Snow Summit and Bear Mountain. Together, the two resorts offer more than 436 developed acres, 26 lifts, four high-speed chairs, 1,800 vertical feet, and more than 200 park features packed with thrilling jumps, rails and funboxes. A free ground shuttle links the two resorts.
At Big Bear Mountain Resorts, consistent quality conditions are the result of advanced snowmaking technology at work and a reliable water supply. Big Bear features two of the largest snowmaking systems in the world. Of course, Mother Nature comes through with natural snow, creating perfect powder days for excellent skiing and riding.
Skiers, snowboarders and families choose Snow Summit for a traditional alpine experience. There’s plenty of room to roam from the popular face of the mountain to peaceful, isolated trails with ideal ski conditions away from the pack. Remember the earlier you arrive in the morning, the more runs you’ll enjoy. Arrive early enough, and you may find the east side of the mountain all to yourself. On the other side of the resort is Snow Summit’s Family Park carved with easy-does-it jumps, bumps and rollers.
