4 Mountains, 4x the Fun

4 Mountains, 4x the Fun

From a full-blown Mammoth getaway to a day trip to Big Bear, your Cali4nia Pass gives you the options to get the best of it all at 4 extraordinary California mountain resorts. 

Mammoth Mountain 

At 11,053 feet, Mammoth boasts the highest lift-served summit of any California resort, making for deeper, higher quality snow, beautiful views and a season that can last until July. With 3,500 skiable acres, 400 inches of snowfall and an average of 300 days of sunshine per year, we offer an awesome big mountain skiing/riding experience each and every season.

June Mountain

With 1,500 acres of uncrowded slopes, breathtaking views of June Lake and the surrounding mountains, a family-friendly atmosphere and industry-leading lesson programming, June Mountain is a true gem of the Eastern Sierra.

Bear Mountain

Home to Southern California's highest lift-served peak sitting at 8,805 feet, Bear Mountain was voted Transworld Snowboarding Magazine's #1 Terrain Park, which includes the only halfpipes in So Cal.

Snow Summit

Drop in from 8,200 ft and experience all of what Snow Summit has to offer, including expanded beginner area, redesigned rental shops, themed restaurants, a concert venue, and the Grizzly Ridge Tune Park.
