Located in Southern California, Snow Summit is accessible on the same lift pass as neighboring Bear Mountain, although more popular amongst skiers and less focused on terrain parks. Its extensive snowmaking allows for some of the most consistent snow in the area and its night skiing isn't too bad either. Like Bear Mountain, they also offer a free lift ticket on your birthday!

Really mellow and good for beginners, family, and people trying to advance their skills. Good beginner jumps and terrain. Some steeper zones that can be fun after a dumper. Can get crowded on weekends.... More
