Skiing, Snowboarding, Dining and Drinking Continuing At LA-Area Mountain Ski Resort
On a weekend of dream conditions with tons of snow falling, which normally would bring thousands of skiers and snowboarders to the area, Big Bear Mountain is instead having to combat a blizzard of activity stemming from the hunt for former LAPD officer Christopher Donner.
But Big Bear wants everyone to know it is open for skiing, snowboarding, as well as entertainment at its restaurants and bars. It has issued the following statement:
“Big Bear Lake Resort Association is pleased to know law enforcement authorities continue to search for multiple murder suspect Christopher Dorner in the Big Bear area. The announcement at the most recent press conference given by San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon announced that the two top priorities are to keep deputies and the community of Big Bear safe.
“The most recent press conference has given the Big Bear community more assurance to keep Big Bear open for business. Big Bear will remain open until law enforcement authorities can confirm Dorner is still in the area or not. At that time Big Bear Lake Resort Association will reassess the situation for business.”
Donner has left tracks all over Southern California from San Diego to Orange County to Los Angeles, and his burned-out truck was found in Big Bear on Thursday. That has caused the sheriff’s department to conduct house-to-house searches in Big Bear and it will continue to have a presence there until Donner is either found or evidence is presented that he is elsewhere.
And that presence is comforting to residents and is why Big Bear is still open for business.
Big Bear has some fun bars. I was up there not too long ago hit ’em all, and here’s my review on PubClub.com.
I’ll also be providing updates if the situation changes on this blog and on my Twitter account: @barblogger.
