California
Big Bear Lake 

At Big Bear Mountain Resorts, conditions are way better than you may expect with more terrain open than you realize! Two of the world's largest snowmaking systems plus a nearly inexhaustible supply of water from Big Bear Lake have allowed our snowmaking crews to make a tremendous amount of snow. Forecasts are calling for cold dry Santa Ana conditions over the next few days enabling the resorts to continue to make snow around-the-clock! Coverage is excellent on all open runs with a machine groomed packed powder surface. One lift ticket gives you access to more open terrain and more lifts operating than any other Southern California resort.

Mammoth Mountain

Ski and ride on the deepest snow base in the U.S.: 12 to 14 feet. We've already received almost 300 inches this season and we're just getting started. Conditions are epic for a mid-season trip to Mammoth. Mammoth is an area rich in history and evolution, springing from the hope and vision of founder Dave McCoy. From meager beginnings to a world-class resort, Dave's passionate dreams have produced epic memories for all who have experienced the Mammoth.
