Big Bear Lake Resort Association (BBLRA) announced that for one day only, Nov. 11, 2011, they will sell $11 lift tickets to Big Bear Mountain Resorts ([R43R, Bear Mountain] and [R400R, Snow Summit]) with the purchase of a night of lodging. That’s an 80 percent discount off the normal rate.

“Groupon and Living Social can’t even come close to this deal!” Big Bear Lake Resort Association President & CEO Rick Shoup said. “I think the last time Big Bear skiers had the opportunity to purchase tickets this cheap was in the 1950’s. This marks the largest discount in Big Bear’s history.”

The tickets can be purchased between 12:01 a.m. and 11:50 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 11, 2011, and guests must book at least one night of lodging accommodations for this winter season (between Nov. 14 and April 13, 2012). The ticket is good for midweek overnight stays Sunday through Thursday, non-holiday, and skiing or riding Monday through Friday, non-holiday.

Two lift tickets can be purchased for $11 each, and additional tickets can be purchased at 25 percent off the regular rate. In addition to the $11 lift tickets, BBLRA will offer 11 percent discounts on all lodging reservations and a reduced processing fee from $20 to $11.

Lift ticket vouchers and lodging discounts are not valid during holiday periods: Nov. 24–27, 2011; Dec. 17–31, 2011; Jan. 1–8, 2012; Jan. 14–16, 2012; and Feb. 18–20, 2012.

The 11-11-11 Special Package is available online at or by phone at 800-424-4232 (9 a.m. to 5 p.m.).
