Bear Mountain has four peaks that feature a combination of packed powder and ungroomed terrain. For the riders to choose what they want from their experience.

Silver Mountain has three advanced runs to choose from, with access to Deer and Goldmine canyons, while Bear Peak features the highest, steepest, most challenging lift-served peak in Southern California (8,805’) and access to Bow Canyon.

WARNING: Going off designated runs can be dangerous. These areas are not patrolled or maintained. Go at your own risk.

Snow Summit is a mountain built for all skill levels. It has over 240 acres of skiable terrain and 27 trails. Snow Summit boasts 18+ skiable miles.

Check out the terrain park, which is basically a skateboarding park with snow. You can try your jibs, jumps, and pipes. This can be as intense as you want it to be. Snow Summit is a great place to test the variety of your skills, like a gym with all the equipment you will ever need.
