Located in Southern California’s San Bernardino Mountains, Bear Mountain offers a 200-acre winter playground for skiers and snowboarders. Along with Snow Summit, Bear Mountain makes up the Big Bear Mountain Resort.
With 85% of Bear Mountain covered by over 200 freestyle features, the mountain features over 165 beginner to advanced rails, boxes, walls and other features and 4 pipes (8 foot, 13 foot, 18 foot and a Jib Pipe) that include Southern California’s only Superpipe, along with Bear Mountain’s Skill Builder Parks geared toward freestyle skiers with beginner skills.
The easiest way to get to the mountain is by car, either your own or a rental. It’s about two and a half hours from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) depending on traffic.
