Winter Finally Comes to Southern California

IT IS OFFICIAL… It is winter in Southern California! Today marks the day when all 3 mountains are open in the area, and that means its winter to me! Big Bear Mountain and sister resort Snow Summit both celebrated their opening days today, joining Mountain High to complete the trinity of snow parks in down here in SoCal. Ah, I can already feel the icicles forming.

Even though some may say its not real until it ACTUALLY snows, but there is snow on the ground and they will continue blowing new snow every day until the stars align, clouds form, and we are blessed with a snow shower. Rain is in the forecast for this weekend, so it only looks better and better for great start to an awesome winter season. I will now stop complaining how cold it is in the morning when I walk to my car.

Here are the conditions I pulled off the Big Bear site to give you an idea of what they have in store. Its not much, but its something.

Current Conditions
New Snow : No – snowmaking will continue as conditions permit
Snow Coverage : Generally good on the open runs
Snow Surface : Machine groomed packed powder, with some hard spots that may soften
Snow Depth : 8 to 12 inches on the open runs

Central Park is open, and Inspiration currently has 13 jibs and 2 snow features for your jibbing pleasure. Snow Summit is now open! Miracle Mile is open top-to-bottom, and Bear Bottom is open for beginners. Snow Summit and Bear Mountain have 4 chairlifts and terrain available for beginner to advanced skiers and snowboarders.

Check out both resorts, www.bearmountain.com and www.snowsummit.com.

You can also preview the conditions before you go from you cell by texting SNOW to 52406 to receive powder alerts and regular updates form the resorts. Check out extended details on their site.

Happy Shredding!
