Latest Snowfall Brings Seasonal Total to Nearly Double Big Bear’s Average; Chain Requirements Lifted

We received nearly two feet of snow in February, and more is expected in this, March's first week.

Big Bear Valley, CA — This weekend’s storm brought another five inches or so of snow to the Big Bear Valley, and up to eight to 10 inches to the higher elevations at the resorts. This latest snowfall brings our seasonal total (for the Valley floor at 6,750’) to about 110 inches; average totals tend to be about 62 inches for the entire season.
Since Saturday’s flurries, all chain requirements have been lifted on our mountain roads (as of Sunday afternoon), so at this time chains are not required on any roads to, from or within the Big Bear Valley. However, as of Saturday, the City of Big Bear Lake reinstated Snow Conditions, so no parking on city streets or risk having your vehicle towed or ticketed. For updated road conditions for our area, visit the KBHR Big Bear Road Conditions page.
