Exclamation Snow Valley, Big Bear (Running Springs)?

So i was searching the forums and couldnt find anything solid on Snow Valley. Ive been there before and it was fun but it was a long time ago and I dont remember it all that well (i had fun, i was younger and didnt care about anything else). Did some google searchin and found out that Mountain High and Snow Valley are both 43.9 miles away from my home. Which park would you vote I get my season pass to in the future (for next season, possibly)?

How does Snow Valley compare to Mtn.High?

Snow Valley has it's pros and cons, one of the most concernable is it's sice, or lack of it rather.
However, it is usually not that crowded, as most of the snowboarding crowd will take their riding the extra 20 minutes to Bear Mtn or Summit.
I'd say go for Mtn. High.

it is fairly small, pretty much only 3 ways down that all meet at the same bunny slope.

i have never seen the back part of it open before.

but it is a great place to learn, cause the short lines and pretty nice long bunny slope, good family place that isn't too big so that you can keep track of everyone from the balcony.

i think it is a great place really, but it is just small thats all.

feels much more relaxed there than summit or bear if you know what i mean.

generally empty, especially in spring time conditons.

but if you are getting a pass i sugest you go for bear/summit cause its not that much further and you get many many many more runs. pretty much 2 mtns for one pass compared to 1/5 of a mtn for one pass. I think i would jsut get bored at valley after going there time after time.

i do have a soft spot for it though cause i did learn there =)
Too Fast!
