Big Bear Mountain FREE rentals for Learn to Ski/Snowboard Program


January is National Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month! In partnership with the National Ski Areas Association (NSAA), Snow Summit and Bear Mountain will be offering FREE rentals to first time beginners, ages 8 and older, who register for a beginner lesson package throughout the month of January.

 “You are never too old to learn to ski or snowboard, and this program is the perfect way for those who have not yet had a chance to experience the excitement of snow sports to get a great deal,” said Chris Riddle, Vice President of Marketing for Big Bear Mountain Resorts.  “We are offering free rentals in January to encourage those that have yet to try skiing or snowboarding to get on the slopes.”

With lesson packages beginning at $49, learning to ski and snowboard has never been easier and more affordable with a variety of beginner lesson packages including:
