How much longer can you ski, snowboard or sled at local resorts?

The weather is warming and snow season is coming to a close.

But just how much longer do you have for a quick getaway up to the slopes at local mountain resorts?

Big Bear Resort, which includes both Bear Mountain and Snow Summit, announced on Friday, April 2, that the end of the season is near, with closing day scheduled for April 11.

According to the resort, the mountains were open for 140 days, with 139 inches of snowfall, including the snowiest March in more than two decades.

Spring slope enthusiasts can get a few end-of-season perks, including free parking in all lots.

If you are heading up to Bear Mountain, be warned there’s a private photo shoot happening March 30 to April 8 with chair 4 closed to the public.

Mountain High in Wrightwood is also stopping lifts as of April 11.

No word yet on when Snow Valley will cease operations, but if you want some holiday fun, the resort plans an Easter egg hunt at 8:30 a.m. on Sunday, with prize eggs hidden in the base and beginner areas and all over the slopes.

Because of COVID-19 restrictions, the Easter Bunny will be a no-show this year.

Mammoth Mountain recently announced it is expected to stay open until at least Memorial Day.
