Big Bear Mountain Resorts (BBMR) has announced that Snow Summit is set to open for the 2013-14 winter season on Friday, December 6 at 8:30 a.m.

At Snow Summit, Chairs 1 and 2 will be open from top to bottom. This includes Miracle Mile and Summit Run. These trails vary in difficulty from lower- intermediate to advanced. Chair 8, the beginner’s lift, will also be open. Full services will be available, including the Ski School, food service and rentals. As snowmaking continues, more lifts and runs will be available.

“We’re kicking off the winter season at Snow Summit with great conditions. The recent storms have resulted in generous snowfall in all the right spots,” said Chris Riddle, Vice President of Big Bear Mountain Resorts. “We’ve got plenty of powder and great conditions for skiers and snowboarders of all levels to enjoy.”

With plenty of snow covering the mountain from both natural snowfall and snowmaking, skiers and snowboarders can enjoy carving down wide open runs on picture-perfect slopes, all while taking in the beautifulviews of the San Gorgonio Mountains and Big Bear Lake.

Due to the limited number of runs currently open at Snow Summit, lift tickets will be offered at the early season rate of $40 for adults (ages 22+), $35 for young adults and seniors (ages 13-21 and 62+) and $16 for children (ages 7-12) on opening day. On Saturday, December 7, rates will increase to $48 for adults, $40 for young adults and seniors, and $20 for children. Children age six and under always ride free, with a paying adult. Season Passes, individual tickets and group tickets are on sale now.
