The winter chill gripping Los Angeles and southern California is a perfect way to kick off the 2013-2014 ski season with Big Bear’s opening on Friday, December 6 and Mountain High opening the day before.
At Mt. Baldy, snow tubing opens Sunday, December 8. Lift number 2 has 90 percent coverage with plans to open December 14. The resort above Upland has been making snow with nighttime temperatures falling into the teens.
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.
Visit the Big Bear Mountain Resorts website for current conditions.
Operating hours are 8:30am to 4:00pm. Night skiing will not take place this weekend but is expected to begin next Friday, December 13th, and continue 7 days a week through the end of the season. The North Pole Tubing Park is also scheduled to open Saturday, December 14th as well.
