Last week, Bear Mountain saw flurries of snow almost every day, but did not pick up the accumulation we were hoping for. The cloudy skies and blowing winds kept the snow fluffy and light however, with endless refills on leeward slopes and in the trees.

After a relatively calm, clear Wednesday and Thursday, low pressure moves back in for the weekend with chances of snow Friday – Sunday. With the active weather pattern will come consistent westerly winds, gusting up to 30mph at times. Daytime highs will be in the mid 20s, with nights dropping into the single digits.

Thanks to our Ski Patrol, Operations Team, and recent snowfall, look for new terrain openings on The Far Side this weekend!
