For more than 20 years, the Freedom Snow Riders—aka FSR—have been on a mission to introduce kids, teens and their families to the skiing and snowboarding experience. Why not take advantage of the gift of living in Southern California, where we can access great winter sports a two-hour drive away?

Whether you’re sending your kid/s with us, or bringing the entire family, the Freedom Riders are all about building a sense of togetherness by spreading the feeling of being stoked on the mountain with our riders, no matter what age or level!

The Freedom Snow Riders have been part of the Bear Mountain family for the last 16 years.

There is so much to say about our amazing local mountain spot, Bear Mountain. Located in the San Bernardino Mountains, only two hours from LA, Bear Mountain is the perfect snow resort destination for skiing and snowboarding for the whole family. Whether it’s your first day on the snow, or you are training for the next X-Games—you will find the greatest, most advanced terrains built and designed to meet your current riding level.


Each rider is responsible to be 100% ready ON the bus with his/her equipment. The rider has a few options for renting the gear:

We think the best way to go is to buy the equipment at LTD Sport. You can return it after using it (season or two) and get half of the price back toward buying the next size up.
