Resort Guide 2018: BEAR MOUNTAIN

Excuse us for flexin' but Bear Mountain is the home of Terrain Parks. Home of legends, firsts and everything snowboarding. Take a lap up chair 9 and drop into a skatepark on snow. With 200+ jibs, jumps and endless tranny you'll nd something for everyone. Keep your eyes peeled and take notes on hidden lines as local legends rip around. Once you're beat call 2-1 and hit up Layback's Bar while scoping some talent hiking The Scene. Whether it's taking endless park laps or lounging on the sun deck with a famous Bear Bloody Mary you'll ride it here first.
