Mammoth Mountain Ski Area, owner of Mammoth Mountain and June Mountain, announced it has entered into an agreement to acquire Bear Mountain, a popular Southern California resort.

The deal, for which there are no financials, is subject to certain conditions, including Big Bear Mountain Resort shareholder approval and transfer of the U.S. Forest Service Permit that permits operations on nearly 1, 500 acres of the San Bernardino National Forest.

Bear Mountain, a relatively small resort popular with day trippers from L.A., will now join forces with Mammoth, one of the biggest areas in the country. Big Bear Mountain Resorts includes both Bear Mountain and Snow Summit, “the largest and most popular of southern California’s ski and snowboard resorts that host nearly 800, 000 winter visits annually, ” according to a press release heralding the deal.

“We couldn’t be more excited to enter into this agreement with Big Bear Mountain Resorts. These two uniquely southern California resorts have been providing great skiing, riding and biking experiences to visitors from California and beyond. Millions have enjoyed their first mountain resort experience on the slopes of Bear Mountain and Snow Summit, and we look forward to expanding upon the legacy that Dick Kun and his people have created over the past six decades, ” said Rusty Gregory, Chairman and CEO of Mammoth Mountain. “This acquisition represents the beginning of a renaissance for both Mammoth and Big Bear and is the first step in the next era of skiing and riding in California. In the coming months we will be announcing exciting new development and expansion plans for each of our four resorts designed to attract visitors from down the street, across the country, and around the world, ” added Gregory.

Along with the acquisition, Mammoth announced a new season pass that includes unrestricted access to all four mountains at the discounted rate of $689 for adults. The new Cali4nia Pass will go on sale at Bear Mountain this Saturday, Sept. 27 and will then be available online for a limited time only at or

“The Cali4nia Pass will cut through the clutter in the market by providing the most diverse set of resort options available in California by allowing you to ski where you want, when you want and as often as you want, ” said Gregory.

The merger of Mammoth and Bear will create one of the nation’s larger ski companies with over 2 million visitors per year. Dick Kun, the long-time CEO of Big Bear Mountain Resorts, said, “Mammoth has always been the natural long-term fit for the Big Bear family and we are thrilled to enter this agreement. I am deeply grateful to the employees, shareholders, and the Big Bear community for their work and support during the 63 years of our operations. Mammoth’s experience and leadership will ensure that southern Californians will continue to enjoy recreating in the local mountains and will undoubtedly bring in a new era of experiences and opportunities for all of our constituents, ” continued Kun.
