NWS Summary: 

Today as the low pressure presses further over the forecast area we will see a possible 8-12″ of new snow fall today with some impressive numbers following daily into Sunday. A high of 32F may be felt in the early morning hours of operations as warm air in front of the system  presses through. Colder air tonight will bring snowfall levels down to the 4000′ range with winds creating whiteout conditions at times. So…….here are the current snowfall predictions for the next few days: tonight- 17-23″, Friday 13-19″, Friday night 22-28″, Saturday 20-26″, Saturday night 14-20″, Sunday 5-9″ before the system winds down and heads East. 99-137″ is some impressive snowfall in the short duration. Check Caltrans for road conditions, check our social media sites for the current and updated information regarding Daily Lift Operations, current conditions as well as the daily weather and avalanche information surrounding the upper and lower mountain. Prepare for travel  & operational delays due to heavy snowfall, winds and avalanche mitigation work as well as snow removal around the resort. We prepare well in advance for these type of storms and plan to operate as much as we can with the weather challenges NOAA has put forth in their forecast for the coming days.  

In comparison, the last time we saw an event with high snowfall totals in short duration was March 2020. Check back in as the week progresses and I will update information as this event may be the biggest of the season….so far. Don’t forget to come ride with us and enjoy some Pure Mountain Fun! 

The Vibe is high here at Bear Valley with a high stoke level across the board and great terrain to enjoy!
