|LA Forever||Big Bear is done for the season, it ends tomorrow, the 7th. The winter for Southern California started out well, but ended way too soon.|

|Dim Mak 1470||I still haven't gone to this resort but I really want to. I fell really hard on my lower back yesterday at Mt. High & was hoping that Bear would still have a bit more coverage. I've only gone once this season without hearing a scraping sound when carving or slowing down =/|

|wernersl||I go pretty much whenever I get the chance. Nice thing about having a pass this season...Just go for even a few hours on the weekends before the crowds roll in. Mid-week...A bad day on the mountain is far better than a good day at work! Thats how I look at Bear/Summit. That said...my tailbone is still wrecked from an early season blowout at bear. Also...they could stand to take grooming lessons from Heavenly and Mammoth.|

That's going a bit far. Indoor? Hah.
When it hits 40-50F, which it does a lot. It's pretty nice. If it stays below that with no new snow it's an ice cube. If it gets above that then you do get slurpee conditions later.
I go maybe 3-5 times a year. Since I'm self-employed I just wait for the good days and go. Last time I went it was snowing (6 inches or so) while we were there.
The rest of the year I just plan big trips.

Bear is rarely a good experience for me. I've had more fun at indoor skiing areas than @ Bear with no recent pow

I don't even go unless it's a dump.
But warm weather does soften things up a little. I won't go if it hasn't snowed and it's cold.
I went and it was soft packed groomers and powder on the sides. Typical 2nd day conditions.

I pretty much refuse to ride Bear unless there's been at least an 1" of snow overnight. Place is just pure hardpack and ice otherwise and poorly groomed.
I can ride Mammoth for weeks without snowfall and leave tired, I ride Bear for 2 days without snow and I leave with deep bruises, a headache, and sprained wrists.
Just assume it blows unless there's been snow lately.

Heading up in the AM. Couldn't go today. Wish I did.
Oh well. Still hope to find some stashes.
