Big Bear Lake is home to Southern California’s two premier ski resorts. Snow Summit is the place for everyday skiers and riders in search of a friendly laid back winter playground. “The Park” at Bear Mountain, known as an “All Mountain Terrain Freestyle Park”, attracts every level from first-time snowboarders and skiers to freestyle enthusiasts. It is the only mountain resort in the United States devoted almost entirely to a freestyle terrain. Both resorts set themselves apart from other Southern California’s ski areas because of their quality snowmaking and slope grooming.
Children who visit Big Bear Lake can experience the thrill of inner tubing down snow packed slopes, which are specifically designed for good times. Parents, too, can relive their youthful days and glide down the smooth vertical incline for a fun-filled ride. Inner tubing in the winter wonderland is the ultimate outdoor family outing that creates memories that last a lifetime. Many families have made sliding down the slopes of Big Bear Lake an annual tradition.
