Bear Mountain Ski Getaways

ski getaways

Nestled in the beautiful Big Bear Valley in the San Bernardino National Forest, Big Bear Mountain Resorts (BBMR) is only one tank of gas away (round trip) from nearly anywhere in Southern California. The resort includes 435 developed acres and about 550 acres of backcountry on two distinctly different mountains. Snow Summit, with wide-open perfectly groomed runs, is the place for mainstream skiers and snowboarders and families with children. Bear Mountain, the nation's first all-mountain terrain park, is designed specifically with freestyle enthusiasts in mind.

The terrain at Bear Mountain is geared toward freestyle on almost every run. From beginner rollers to huge booters, a rail garden, a halfpipe and Superpipe, Bear has it all with about 150 jumps and 80 jibs in all. In addition, Bear Mountain has the largest beginner's area in SoCal and the most challenging steeps for experts, such as Geronimo and Rip's Run. On powder days, three canyons are available for freeriding.
