Bear Mountain

I have had some super fun days up at Bear Mountain this year, even though its one of the worst snow winters in California,  This is actually the 3rd meager snow winter in a row.  Bear Mountain is incredible at making the most out of nothing.  The Park Crew headed up by Clayton Shoemaker is 1st class and the amount of effort they put into making super fun terrain is second to none.  The way they make their park is so different than most ski resorts that put everything in a line,  Bear Mountain is more like a Skatepark, with banks and trannies all over the place.  I love it, and am proud to say I've had a pass there for 23 years.   Burton had a "party in your park" event there and my kids entered it, that was super classic.  I hope they take after my wife in the competitive department.   I also had a incredible reunion day with Mike Parillo (first ever park builder) and Brian Thien.  Both of these guys were at Bear the first year i started riding, and have been a huge influence for me over the years.
Thanks Big Bear Mountain Resorts. :-)
