Big Bear 12/14 to 12/17!

by on Dec.23, 2009, under Random

Thought I’d put up a post and a few pictures of our recent trip up to Big Bear.   Hung, Ann and I carpooled up around 8:30 and arrived around 12ish.   We did a half day at Summit which was a good warmup for the rest of our stay.   East and All Mountain Xpress were litered with newbs and people so we ended up staying on Chair 7 all day.  No lift lines at all ! Woot!  Here’s a map of snow summit for those that aren’t familiar with it.   I believe Chair 3 and 9 were not running so we didn’t explore that side at all.


The cabin that Ann booked was a small little cottage which was a good fit for 3 people, but could probably fit 4 in a pinch.  We really can’t complain because we got an awesome deal!  I think it was somewhere around $50/night and we got hookups for lift tickets for $40 each day as well.

Tuesday was bear mountain day.   Bear is more known for their parks and more advanced runs.   The conditions didn’t seem as great as Summit but we found a tree-run off of Chair 3 that we had a blast on.   I  believe we spent most of our time on Chair 4 to stay away from the long lift lines again.   The last two days we ended up boarding at Summit since the conditions were a little better and we found a tree run we liked near chair 7.   All in all it was a fun trip.   We had some good eats Ribs, Pulled Pork, Fried Rice and discovered a new ice cream flavor “Tin Roof” which was great.  I only banged my knee a couple of times  and we weren’t too tired at the beginning of each day.  We topped it off with all-you can eat Sushi down in Corona which was a great ending for an awesome trip.   I’ll be back there again!  I think I need a Mammoth trip here pretty soon!  These local mountains are tooooo Tiny!
