Don't miss Southern California's premier winter kickoff event

September in SoCal usually means sunny skies and scorching temps, but the forecast at Bear Mountain on Saturday, Sept. 23, calls for 100 percent chance of snow, groomed to perfection for the 14th annual Hot Dawgz & Hand Rails.

One of the most influential and innovative events in the snowboarding industry, HDHR features some of the best riders in the world competing on a one-of-a-kind rail jam course designed and built by Bear Mountain's renowned park staff.

Toss in must-see music performances, exclusive film screenings, and a bunch of snow-starved fanatics ready to party like there’s no tomorrow, and it’s no wonder why HDHR is called “the largest winter kickoff party known to man.”
