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.
WHAT'S NEW FOR 2018
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.
TERRAIN PARK BREAKDOWN
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.
