Big Bear Lake, CA — On Saturday, Bear Mountain unveiled Southern California’s only Superpipe. The 18-ft. high, 580-ft. long and 65-ft. wide competition-class pipe is officially open to all skiers and snowboarders at Big Bear Mountain Resorts.

“Now that SoCal’s only Superpipe is officially open, Bear mountain is the ultimate place to improve your skills – starting with the mini-pipe to the regular pipe and now the Superpipe – you have everything you need to learn the basics or go big like the pros,” said Chris Riddle, Director or Marketing for Big Bear Mountain Resorts. “A winter storm is expected this week with plenty of fresh snow, so it’s going to be a skier’s and snowboarder’s paradise and the ideal time to check out our new park features.”

With forecasters calling for a winter storm this week, conditions are expected to be excellent throughout the holiday weekend. Big Bear Mountain Resorts reminds guests to allow for a little extra time planning their trip up the mountain and be sure to carry chains with them in their vehicle. Guests can visit for the latest news on events, lift ticket deals, weather and snow conditions and road information.

There are still three ways to Big Bear, including Hwy 38 (through Redlands), Hwy 18 from Waterman through Lake Arrowhead and Hwy 18 (the back way through Lucerne Valley). All roads are currently open with no chains required. Hwy 330 is closed below Running Springs. For up-to-the-minute mobile reports, guests can sign up for BBMR’s Text Club:
