Night Skiing at Summit and Bear Mountain

It is kind of cool.  The air gets colder, the day crowds subside, the lights come on, and the music seems to echo through the trees.   Most Friday, Saturday and holiday evenings, Snow Summit offers an evening adventure on the slopes.  Starting at 3:00 PM till 9:30 PM you can cruise the mountains with the lights turned on. 
There is not much more to be said, but it is an experience you will want to do.  It is a totally different mountain at night.  The groomers will be out making and fine tuning the snow, but that doesn't stop the runs from being in top shape and the night progresses. If you're up for a weekend, plan on it.  Fridays are a popular night as you can check into your lodging and come right over and start skiing.  On holiday weekends, you can even get a mini ticket from just 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM.  

Night Skiing at Snow Summit
The runs light up at both Snow Summit and Bear Mountain for night skiing.
The rates are different depending on the weekend. They usually are about $20 less than the regular adult day rate for that day. Not bad for 6.5 hours of fun. Night skiing at Snow Summit is somewhat contingent on weather conditions so hours may vary.  Be smart, call them ahead just to make sure 1-888-Summit-1.
For those of you with tough thighs and just want to make the most of your vacation in Big Bear, a little known secret is that you can get a $10.00 upgrades on your lift ticket. So if you buy a day pass, you can night ski for just $10 bucks more.  But you got to upgrade before the customer service windows close. :-)
