    Bear mtn. is a great destination! Although, member a few important things, college $20 discount is only mon-fri, wear sunscreen, & Snow Summit is another option to ski next door (less park focused).

    Used to be a Summit-Head, but Bear has tightened-up it's game! Beware of lazy lifties atop chair 6--they don't like shoveling snow-- harass boarders not to drag their feet to slow down or turn!

    Options for ALL levels. Nice snow, even in march. Cool instructors who compliment my pants. A kid lost a tooth there. Def buying season passes next year.

    Bring snow chains--even if your vehicle has AWD + proper tires. If there are check points, they might ask to see your chains, even if you don't need to put them on

    It's a good idea to get to the mountain before 8am if you want to be able to park your car in the upper lot. Also the crowds are way down on the weekdays before Christmas.

    This place is like a scavenger hunt. Rent ski here. Rent helmets over there. 15 minute wait in help line. Long lines gift shop. Good luck at finding all the different flags for ski school.

    The Walmart at the bottom of the mountain sells chains, but the supply is limited. You're better off buying them at your local automotive store.

    If you want to beat the lunch crowd and try to get a decent table, get food before noon because that's when all the classes end.

    Check for cheap tix at Costco. Buying in store vs. Costco online might save you a few mins at the mtn

    Increíble vista en el atardecer. La luna es enorme. Caminar de noche sobre la nieve te hace sentir en película de terror. Trae equipo de nieve, de lo contrario no vas a disfrutar el lugar.
