Bear Mountain is hosting a snow industry appreciation weekend at the end of March in conjunction with the NEFF Beach Bash and Malakye's Office Booyz that will offer industry desk jockeys 3 free days of riding and much more.

"It's been a very challenging winter out here," stated Rio Tanbara, Director of Marketing at Bear Mountain. "We at Bear wanted to show our appreciation for all of the support we have received this season."

We interviewed Bear Mountain's Director of Marketing to get the scoop on what industry desk jockeys can expect from the weekend, including details on all the special events that will be happening and information on how attendees can get involved!

All are welcome to come out and enjoy the fun! Check out the requirements below to see if you qualify for a FREE lift ticket and register today. Also, bring your guests! But, keep in mind that guests of snow industry people will need to purchase lift tickets.
