    The snowmaking cut-off was reached last week, so it is irrelevant what the temperature will be next week... I have been there almost everyday the past week and a half and we have barely had enough attendance to fill the first upper gravel lot on weekends let alone weekdays, even though I do not want it to end I can understand why the mountain chooses to shut down when COSTS > Income There is a large snowmobile race next weeked which has been planned since last fall, despite the hopes of many, it is not really a viable option to stay open to skiers and riders when there are snowmobiles doing 80+ mph racing around the mountain. This is supposed to be a big event so I didnt expect to stay open. Even yesterday while working, there are huge stretches on cascade in front of some of the boxes which are turning to complete mud. Black bear is the only run which has ALOT of snow. I agree the jumps could be pushed out and extend the season slightly with a hike park or something similar, but that is yet to be determined. ( and I highly doubt it due to liabilty and costs of still employing people to work it) All these reasons aside, I agree it sucks bear is closing because it also means I am temporarily unemployed... but this is something people need to come to terms with because we live in PA and Bear is not a mountain that operates solely on the ski business. They will ultimately make the decisions that are most financially beneficial to the resort. I hope everyone had as good a season as I did and I hope to see some wicked outfits for GAPER DAY this weekend!!!!!

    Not completely true, I still know of one house that can fit 100+ in the basement and has its own operating bar down there... as well as a few other smaller party houses

    the new features are the 38' rail seen in the picture above, arbor rail, flat-down-flat, small cannon rail, slanted 420 box so its hit-able multiple ways, and the donkey d rail on a down.

    Park setup is awesome, and not just saying that because I work there, added about 5-6 new features last night. Really fun, that 24 hours of snowmaking helped a ton.

    I'm on park crew, and yes there may be enough snow to open black bear and put a few rails on it, but if you have gone down it you would realize it is not flat across its width and does not yet have the "tiers" or different levels that it did last year where we can put features side by side. So at this point it would be a really sporadic setup if we were trying to put rails in random places because much of the trail is still very uneven and would likely pose an issue with groomers trying to properly set up the trails grade . Alot of snowmaking still has to occur before a jump line and other larger features can be built. Not trying to start a fight, just trying to convey my thoughts

    With what snow would you like more features to be added?? There will be more features added in time, the mountain has literally been open for 4 days... its going to require more snowmaking and a night of re-grading the trail to accomodate more rails.
