Big Bear Lake, Calif., March 10, 2003 — Prior to the 2002/2003 season the merger of Bear Mountain Resort (Bear Mountain) and Snow Summit Mountain Resort (Snow Summit) was completed after the best season pass prices of season were already long gone. Now that the two resorts are operating together as Big Bear Mountain Resorts (BBMR), this is the first opportunity for skiers and snowboarders to take advantage of the “Screamin’ Deal pass prices including dual mountain passes and Bear Mountain only passes.

Dual mountain passes are valid at Snow Summit and Bear Mountain now through the end of the season, all summer for mountain biking and sky chair rides and the entire 03/04 winter season. Passes are available for $199 Midweek, $299 Midweek Plus Sunday and $549 Anytime.

Bear Mountain only passes are valid now through the end of the season and the entire 03/04 winter season. As an additional bonus Bear Mountain only passes are valid for specified night sessions at Snow Summit. The Bear Mountain only passes are set at a price that should be very affordable for the young freestyle enthusiasts that are looking to spend their days riding the All-Mountain Freestyle Terrain Park. Passes are available for $169 Midweek, $199 Midweek Plus Sunday, $399 Anytime and $299 Anytime Non-Holiday.

With all of the recent natural snow and excellent snowmaking conditions over the past couple of weeks, BBMR now have a mid-winter snowpack and both resorts are 100% open offering the best skiing and snowboarding of the season.
