The drive up the mountain to get to the resort was was a bit heinous, but the views were spectacular! The ski season was winding down so there wasn't a whole lot of snow on the mountain. This, however, made for some great spring conditions. Was able to hit the hill in jeans and t-shirt. Black diamond runs were still... More

I went to Bear Mountain for opening day with my family (11/25/16). My husband and son snowboard and I ski. Only two lifts and runs open. I have never seen so many HORRIBLE snowboarders and skiers in my life. The runs weren't very wide and there were snowboarders wiping out all over the place and then staying in the middle... More

They have many beginner runs. There are two beginner runs that are accessible from the lodge and several others that you can get to from up there. EASY runs for first-timers. Snow Summit only has one run for first-time beginners, so go the Bear Mountain for beginners.

On a recent trip to the LA area we decided to take a day trip up to Big Bear and it did not disappoint! I'd absolutely recommend it for a change of pace! The terrain park was very fun and the black diamonds were well groomed. Also, the view from the top is incredible! Go check it out!

Beat Mountain, now owned by Mammoth resorts, distinguishes itself by the enormous number of terrain features on its runs. It is also distinguished by high prices, long lift lines, and snow boarders whose aspirations do not quite match their talent level. For the (at most) 25% of the skiers on the mountain, this is a little problematic. By early afternoon... More

If you live in the LA area and want to shred the snow park on your board or skis. Then Bear Mountain is the place for you. This So Cal locals favorite, breads trendsetters and Olympic athletes. One of the only snow resorts in Southern California. This mountain was just voted #1 terrain park in the USA.

Slow service at the rental - lessons booking area. Instructors were very good and had the kids and my wife up on the 2nd level lifts after a 2 hour lesson. The restaurant is very basic, crowded on the weekend and food was - hot and calorific!..

We had great fun, spending a couple of days ski-ing on the mountain with USARC and a party of people of varying abilities from the UK. I personally mono-ski-ed, in a sitski. Great fun. The beginner run (easy street and learning curve) are good for learning, but there is not really anything intermediate before you hit the bigger runs (pop... More
