If you want to ride park, Bear Mountain is the place. There's not a lot of steep terrain but the entire mountain is a terrain park and is snowboarder-heavy. It was even ranked number 2 in Transworld Snowboarding 2017 Park Poll. Nearby Big Bear Lake and Big Bear City offer an array of lodging, restaurants, and nightlife. Best of all, you can ski nearby Snow Summit on the same pass and you'd be hoping were born in winter because they give you a free lift ticket on your birthday!

Great place to go when conditions are right! Cold crisp sunny days that are perfect for active Southern Californians. You can ski this mountain but it caters to Snowboarders...I love this place! Great for the beginner to advanced skier or snowboarder.... More

Alright listen, Bear Mountain is like that mountain from OutCold the movie. It's an absolutely amazing mountain. Listen, enjoyment and fun fall from the heavens and clouds open and like it just snows Skittles and Snickers bars and alcohol is free. Listen, I'm desperate to win that Epic pass. I need this bad and I realize I keep saying listen and I... More

Easy access from l.A.. Great mountain to practice you're park skills. And if you just want to cruise and throw down some high speed "S" turns head up to Jeronimo. You won't be disappointed. ... More

Great place for Southern California skier/snowboarders to go as they do not have to fly or drive far for decent slopes. Also the town has several local restaurants and bars that can suffice for many different tastes.... More

Great place for beginner to intermediate skiers. No slopes that are extremely difficult. We went right after they had gotten a huge storm, so the snow was good. The town has a good deal of restaurants and a nice Main Street area. Great for the Southern California skier/snowboarder to go without having to fly or drive a long way!... More

Way too over crowded but it's the closest and easiest resort to get to from San Diego and Los Angeles which means everyone in SoCal goes there making lift lines ridiculously long and very crowded trails from lack of available terrain... More

The place was a great stay. For the most part everything was smoothly run, the staff was friendly and the mountain was in good shape. We were fortunate to have some snow fall and it was nicely prepared each day of riding. Would definitely go back for sure great stay... More
