I echo those who suggest you head to Snow Summit as opposed to Bear Mountain. Snow Summit is by far more newbie friendly. If you do go I suggest you take classes as oppose to trying to figure things out on your own.

it is $69 for classes, that comes with a beginner's lift ticket. You can add $10 to change it to all mountain. The class also come with a continuation coupon, which is -$10 off your next class and free upgrade to all mountain. So it is actually cheaper than adult lift ticket on your second day/class.

The normal adult lift ticket is $69.

You still goin tues? Looks like my only free day for riding this week if you want to meet up.


As far as bear v. summit- I learned to ride at bear, had a great instructor, and picked things up pretty quick. But I do agree that there isn't much beginner terrain. I've never been to summit, but tryin to get there this season at some point.
