Big Bear, Blanketed in Snow, Opens Friday

    A blanket of snow and tempting ski slopes greeted fans of winter athletics as Bear Mountain opened its ski lifts for the first time this season. Kate Larsen reports for the NBC4 News at 5 on Friday, Nov. 25, 2016. (Published Saturday, Nov. 26, 2016)

    The slopes are primed for opening season at Big Bear on Friday.

    A November blanketed the resort with snow just in time for the beginning of the ski and snowboarding season. Two chairs, No. 7 and 9, will be running on opening day.

    The ski lifts will run from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

    Officials say the roads to the Big Bear resort have been cleared by snow plows for drivers to make their way up to the mountain.
