Hey Good People! Entire Upper Mountain Open & Best Early Season Conditions in 15 Years! ~ Mattly Trent

Posted by: thepinetree on 12/08/2018 10:25 AM
Bear Valley, CA...Hey Good People! The short wave trough heads East today so we’ll see clear skies and temps around 42F for the high. Light and variable winds will in order today and should not exceed 6mph or so. The next low pressure trough will arrive Sunday afternoon/evening so the weekend will be in great shape for sunshine and good times. Monday through Tuesday we could pick up another few inches of new snow but timing is still different between the models so we’ll give it another day before I nail that down. We are opening the backside this morning with the Pooh Chair coming online for a bit then we’ll switch over the Polar Express. We will also be running the Moke Express 6 pack on the front side. If you’re on the fence about coming up get off of it as early conditions have never been this good in 15 years! The Christmas Holiday is shaping up to be stellar so don’t miss out and make plans to enjoy Be ar Valley for the coming Holidays. As always we’re about “Pure Mtn Fun”.
