Going up chair 9 at Bear Mountain. Not a lot of lines yet, but pretty sure it will get busy. Note that only chair 7 and 9 are open.
Skiers and Snowboarders caught on avalanche
This video is pretty interesting of 2 snowboarders and 1 skier getting caught on an avalanche in the Pyrenees. The mountain is beautiful, the soft snow amazing and everyone survived. Check it out.

First Snow of the Season in Big Bear – California
Big Bear (California) just got its first snow of the season. It was just about an inch, but having the first snow in October is a great sign for the season. As the wise man says: some snow is better than no snow. That’s how Bear Mountain looked this morning.
