Bear Mountain is officially open for business. The playground of shredders who refuse to give up the sun for the snow opened yesterday, Wednesday, November 9 to the elation of thousands of southern California kids. They started the season off in true Big Bear fashion too, with their infamous People’s Park placing features from top to bottom underneath service by Chair 9, the park chair.

First hand reports tell us that the snow is as good as it gets, which is a likely assessment from anyone who’s just taken their first laps of the season. But Bear has bolstered the claims with an assortment of jibs, wallrides, and typically unique features from Clayton Shoemaker and his team.

A bunch of pros were on hand for the festivities, which were set to the beats of DJ Slip Matt at the end of each hot lap. Scotty Vine is a Bear regular, and he was there getting nuts. To see more of the action, head on over to Bear Mountain’s Facebook page for more pictures.

Early season lift ticket prices have been slashed down to a reasonable $40, with discounts for kids under 21, over 65 and the rest of the standard demographics that get deals. Since tomorrow is Veteran’s Day, they’re letting the boys in blue ski and ride for free, so if you’re one of those brave souls, go celebrate at Bear.

Bear opens at 8:30am and runs until 4:00pm each and every day, and with the way things usually go at Bear, there will be new features sneaking their way onto the slopes every night.
