The big business news is the purchase: http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-mammoth-big-bear-20140924-story.html
Lots of talk about more development in Big Bear in that article and that seems to be where the money is.
But the big ski news is that their MVP pass is now the Cali4nia Pass and good for unlimited skiing at 4 mountains: Mammoth, June, Big Bear, and Snow Summit.
I live in LA and I am definitely considering this now.
