Red Bull Plaza at Bear Mountain is an urban-styled snowboarding park that includes a Hot Dawgs and Hand Rails offering this year.
Freestyle Park offers more jumps, jibs and transition offerings than any snowboarding park in Southern California. The park has more than 200 acres of winter fun for snowboarders, including four pipes (8’, 13’, 18’ and a jib pipe) and more than 100 snow features and jibs that will keep you busy for hours. Enjoy the in-ground superpipe and standard halfpipe too.
Need some practice and some confidence before you head out with your snowboard? Head to Skill Builder Park to get some confidence before you master the pipes with your snowboard.
