Hey guys, let's go to Big Bear March 1-3! We'll drive up Fri, ski/ride Sat and Sun, and drive back Sunday evening. For Saturday night we'll eat dinner, play games like Catchphrase, and relax in the hot tub!

In addition to our condo, other costs for the weekend will include lift tickets, food, gas, and (if needed) gear rentals and lessons. Check out the Snow Summit trail map here ( Driving to Big Bear means 2.5 hours of awesome conversation and car games. :) I'll be helping organize carpools a week ahead of time as needed.

Along with Snow Summit Ski Resort there is also Bear Mountain, which doesn't have as many fast lifts and is designed more for snowboarders. Both resorts are owned by the same company so lift tickets for Snow Summit are good at Bear Mtn as well. A free shuttle runs between the two resorts.

Note: The cabin's address will go out a few days in advance to those who've paid. Payment covers both nights. Breakfast is included for Saturday & Sunday.

I can do refunds until Friday February 22th at 10pm. After this you'll need to find a replacement.

Our cabin will have a kitchen, living room, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, gas fireplace, tv, dvd player, free wifi, and an outdoor hot tub. The drive from our cabin to Snow Summit will be less than 10 minutes.

Lift tickets are $59/day at the mountain.

We'll be eating breakfast at our condo (included in the cost for the condo). For lunch we'll either purchase at the mountain or bring sack lunches. And we'll eat out for dinner Sat night.

Info about lessons at Snow Summit is here (

Rental info for Snow Summit can be found here ( I've found that prices are usually cheaper just down the street at Goldsmith's Board House (, plus they rent all the extra stuff like snow pants, gloves, goggles, hats, jackets, and even padding.

I'll be helping everyone find a carpool. In the meantime, feel free to post a comment with whether you'd like to ride or drive as well as how many spots you have open, where you'll be leaving from, and your earliest leave time and latest return time.
