    When does snow start in Big Bear?

    Does anybody know when snow usually starts to fall in Big Bear? I'm trying to figure out when the mountain will be too covered to ride.

    The lifts will stop the weekend after the fall classic.

    Actually, if the weather permits it usually stays open until the last weekend in October. They closed early last year because of the fires.

    But in reality, it's really at the managements whim. After the Fall Classic, all bets are off.
    Best to check each weekend before heading up.

    Pretty much when they turn on their snowmaking machines...
    I know in my heart that Ellsworth bikes are more durable by as much as double. AND they are all lighter...Tony Ellsworth

    For the last couple of seasons, they opened up in early december. If it gets cold and starts raining soon, they might be able to open as soon as Thanksgiving. We haven't had a great winter season in a long time.
