Full review

Bear mountain was really not my first choice, but over all it turned out alright. We got there right after a big snow storm so there was great powder and the lift lines were short. It also wasn't a bad drive from LA. The snowboarders, however, go very fast which makes it difficult for some people. Also, as a skier, I found that it was a basically snowboard mountain. It is a very laid back Southern Cali type of place. Over all it was pretty good, but fairly easy as compared to places in the Tahoe area or Utah or Colorado. If you live in LA it is good to come for a short trip because it is only about two 1/2 hours. Because of this though, it does get extremely crowded on weekends and holidays.
