One of the most in­flu­en­tial and in­no­va­tive des­ti­na­tions in the in­dus­try, Big Bear Moun­tain Re­sort has great snow con­di­tions, large begin­ner ar­eas, and the high­est lift-served peak (8,805 feet) in South­ern Cal­i­for­nia. Lo­cated just two hours from Los An­ge­les, in the San Bernardino Moun­tains, Big Bear Moun­tain Re­sort is South­ern Cal­i­for­nia’s home for year-round out­door fun, with two all-in­clu­sive prop­er­ties—Bear Moun­tain and Snow Sum­mit—renowned for their ski­ing and snow­board­ing in the win­ter and moun­tain bik­ing, hik­ing, and golf in the sum­mer.


Big Bear Moun­tain Re­sort has made $3.6 mil­lion in cap­i­tal im­prove­ments for the 2018/19 sea­son, in­clud­ing the grand open­ing of a new 6,000 square-foot learn­ing cen­ter in the Bear Moun­tain base area that will serve as a one-stop shop for fam­ily and kids rentals, lift tick­ets, and sports school reg­is­tra­tion so fam­i­lies can spend more time en­joy­ing the slopes. The fa­cil­ity is sched­uled to open in mid-De­cem­ber and in­cludes a din­ing venue serv­ing ar­ti­san piz­zas, full-ser­vice cof­fee bar, and spir­its.


Home to the first ter­rain park in North Amer­ica (Outlaw, 1992), Big Bear Moun­tain Re­sort’s award-win­ning parks are heav­ily in­flu­enced by South­ern Cal­i­for­nia’s iconic surf and skate scenes, with 200+ fea­tures and the only half­pipes in SoCal.
