NON PEAK/PEAK PARKING BEAR MOUNTAIN

Once the Main lot is filled, the Golf Club House lot is then parked. Lower Club View is used at a relief valve. Guests usually self-park this area. On days designated NON PEAK PARKING and when Golf Club House is approximately 70% at capacity, traffic control personnel are put on stand-by and are in the position to begin parking the lower areas beginning with the Moonridge lot. This should be more than enough capacity for a NON PEAK PARKING day, most NON PEAK days do not require remote lots and shuttling operations. This procedure will minimize the impact to the businesses and residents located in the Moonridge Corridor.

NON PEAK/PEAK PARKING SNOW SUMMIT

Once the Main Base Lot is filled Summit Blvd (Side of the street parking) is used as a relief valve prior to the parking control getting in position to accept guests at Brownie Lane Lot. Once Summit Blvd. is 70% filled parking control is dispatched and ready to receive cars at Brownie Lane Lot and they begin parking Brownie Lane when Summit Blvd. has reached capacity. ADA, Drop offs and Select parking is allowed to continue up Summit Blvd. and Radio communication is used to notify parking staff at the Main Base Lot to receive these specific guests.

SUMMARY PEAK/MAXIMUM PARKING BOTH RESORTS (COMINGLED)

The Main Base lots are normally Paid Parking on PEAK/MAXIMUM DAYS so they are open and parking sellers are available as early as 6:30 am. Free parking is started as early as 6:30 am and guests are directed to Summit Blvd. at Summit or Cedar Club Lot at Bear Mtn. Shuttles start running as soon as the first cars are parked in these lots some as early as 7am. After these 2 lots are filled any guests who do not want to pay for parking are SIMULTANEOUSLY parked in lower or remote lots (IE Brownie Lane Lot and Moonridge Lot) with shuttle operations starting as soon as guests arrive in the morning (as early as 7 am) Traffic control is placed in the Main Base Lots and the first remote lots to be parked as early as 7am. When the Main Base Lots and Golf Clubhouse Lot reach capacity, ALL guests are directed to remote lots that are currently being parked, with some guests being parked in the Brownie Lane Lot and some guests being directed to the Moonridge Lot. When the Brownie Lane Lot is at capacity ALL guests are directed to park in the Moonridge Lot. When the Moonridge Lot reaches approximately 80% capacity guests are directed to Fox Farm Rd.and Big Bear Blvd. instead of turning on Moonridge Rd. This “flipping of the switch” and changing of the CMS signage along the Blvd. directs guests to the Fox Farm Lot. There are normally enough cars queued on Moonridge Rd. and Rathbun Ct. to fill the remainder of the Moonridge Lot without having to redirect guests from the Moonridge Lot to the Fox Farm lot. The parking control staff toggles between the remote lots as they fill to make sure there are always adequate parking control staff when a lot begins to be parked. It should also be noted that lots NOT being parked are gated to prevent guests and non BBMR resort guests from self parking.

Snow Conditions

SNOW PLOWING

Our crews plow each street twice and usually more during a large storm. Our main goal is to ensure that City streets are cleared of snow in order to allow Fire, Paramedic, Sheriff and Utility response vehicles access. Please be patient during snow removal, as our crews are working as quickly as they can during inclement weather. Usually the streets are plowed straight through in the early morning leaving a berm along side of every driveway. Several hours after snow fall has ceased, the berm is reduced by a separate contractor with a specialized vehicle and snow blade.

BERM REDUCTION

In order for residents to receive berm reduction service, driveway openings must be clearly marked with brightlypainted orange snow poles (3/4” in diameter). Berm reduction begins only after all streets are cleared and passableand snow fall has ceased. When 3-10 inches of snow has fallen, you can expect a berm reduction. As well as when 10-16 inches of snow has fallen, you can expect a berm reduction. However in very severe weather conditions (16”+inches), this service may not be provided until 24-72 hours after the snow fall has ceased.

DRIVEWAY SHOVELING

If possible, wait until the second snow plow passing to start shoveling your driveway. It is recommended to shovel snow to the right side of the driveway (facing the street).

GARBAGE CANS

Place garbage cans behind the property line & berm when setting out for pick-up. When garbage cans are left too close to the roadway, snowplows may have to go around them leaving some areas unplowed.

PROPERTY IMPROVEMENTS NEAR ROADWAYS

Sprinkler systems, block walls and expensive shrubs are not visible as the snow gets deeper. Snow removal crews cannot always see these obstacles near the roadway. Snow plowing usually occurs before daylight. To help our crews, mark fences and obstacles with 6’ x 2” x 2” stakes, painted red at the top.

REGULATIONS, FINES AND CITATIONS

The City of Big Bear Lake’s Code states that any vehicle interfering with snow removal operations may be towed and subjected to a fine of $150, plus any additional applicable fines for any towing and impound charges and illegal street parking fees. Every effort will be made to avoid towing, but in the event the vehicle needs to be towed, for example when dangerously parked, towing shall be enforced.

ADDITIONAL ASSISTANCE

When snow conditions are in effect, free overnight parking is available at two City parking lots located at 39707 Big Bear Blvd., known as the West Civic Center Parking Lot, and at the Alden Parking Lot located at 547 Alden Road,east of Sandy’s Sports Bar.

IF PROPERTY DAMAGE OCCURS

If your property is damaged during snow removal or cinder spreading operations, it will be in your best interest to obtain the date of occurrence, time and exact location, vehicle description, driver’s name (if possible) and pictures ofthe damage.

Claim forms can be found on the City Clerk page of the City’s website at www.citybigbearlake.com. Be sure to includecopies of written estimates of damage and photographs, if possible. Mail to the City Clerk’s Office at P.O. Box 10000,Big Bear Lake, CA 92315.
