We have boarded at Snow Summit and Bear Mountain for years and things do not really change much. They are both well maintained resorts. The conditions this past weekend were groomed hard pack with some icy spots which softened as the morning went on. All the runs were open and well covered. The resort was not crowded and the lines for the lift were manageable, it is always better in the early morning and later in the day. This is a good place for beginners to expert with a variety of run at both resorts. It is within easy travel of LA and San Diego, even for a day trip.
