Bear Mountain Season Pass

I was thinking about getting a season pass this year. I primarily only ride at Snow Summit because it's less crowded and I'm not really interested in park. I'm wondering if it's worth it to get the dual mountain season pass because I can't get a Snow Summit only season pass or should I just try somewhere else.

Have you thought about getting a Mammoth season pass? I think you can get it for $300(?) if you are a student. If not, it should be about the same price as an Anytime Bear/Snow Summit pass.

Trust me I would do mammoth if I could. I would love to have a pass to Mammoth but it is just to far to go as much as I would like to. I can't really take time off to go boarding for a month either because my job won't allow. I'm on the central coast right in the middle of Big Bear and China Peak. The closest resort time wise is Mt High. I really don't want to get a pass there though.

Big bear is al ot of park, but it's worth it for the canyons the 1-5 times a year there's enough snow. Keep in mind bring a board you can beat up because there are a lot of rocks. It's still a lot of fun there

As a former SoCal rider, I would recommend both. I wasn't into park either, but there is some super fun pow terrain around the higher lifts that makes having access to both worth it. It's not hard to avoid the packs at Bear. Just stick to the south side of the resort.

Smart decision. Avoid the LA crowds.

But the duel pass is so expensive. What do you know about Snow Valley?

It gets two thirds of the snow bear gets, gets soft quicker as it's lower in elevation and much less terrain. My parents own a house 5min from valley. If your gonna spend the money, at least get a bear or summit pass. Summit is fun, lots of terrain. If your really strapped, just go summit and avoid the crowds like you said. After your first year of a season pass,you'll know whether or not to get a combo the next year.

It looks like you can't just get a summit only pass though.
