Big Bear Mountain Resorts have rolled back prices to make for the perfect Sunday Funday in the Park. Guests are encouraged to act fast on the Super Sunday Deal, which offers $13 savings when purchasing a lift ticket online only for use this Sunday, March 13, 2011. These savings come at a perfect time with both Bear Mountain and Snow Summit open 100 percent with a deep snowpack and excellent conditions.

“Now is the time to take advantage of last-minute weekend savings,” said Chris Riddle, Marketing and Sales Director for Big Bear Mountain Resorts, “With clear, sunny skies and all roads open with no restrictions, the substantial snowpack will make for great skiing for the rest of March and well into April.”

The park is ready for big-time action with the Trans-AM finals this weekend! Riders looking to make a short trip to the mountain can check out the sixth and final stop of the 2011 TransAm Series taking place this Saturday, March 12 at Bear Mountain. The six stop amateur tour series, which kicked off in January and touches down at the most progressive park resorts from coast to coast, will bring together the top riders and SoCal locals to compete for bragging rights and the championship title.

The Trans-Am Series will kick-off at Bear Mountain at 11 a.m. with Traffic Jam, where all riders hike and ride the slope style mini-park course together. A panel of judges will then select 40 riders to advance to the Ultimate Jam, where they will show off their skills in three 10-minute jam sessions. The overall TransAM champion will be able to take their snowboarding to the next level when they walk away with an automatic qualification and a trip to the RIDE Shakedown finals at the Summit at Snoqualmie in Washington.

In addition, TransWorld SNOWboarding and Big Bear Mountain Resorts have teamed up to include a subscription to the magazine for everyone who buys a lift ticket the day of the event. Guests are encouraged to check out the competition and hit the slopes themselves to take advantage of excellent winter conditions. For more information on the TransAM series, visit:
