Thanks to Big Bear Lake, Ski On!

Big Bear, Ca, March 23, 2016 – Many resorts were hopeful for a longer ski season thanks to El Niño this year, but officials at Mountain High Ski Resort said a dry March has led to an early end to the season.

Big Bear, CA, February 13th, 2016 – Did you know that Big Bear is one of the most important and amazing ski and snowboard destinations in the country?  According to a new article in Ski Magazine, it just might be. Big Bear Mountain Resorts is a fantastic winter sports location, and it’s not just because of the beautiful snow and stunning scenery… it’s because of the wide variety of people it attracts.  Just in lining up for the lift or grabbing a bite at the Beach Bar your’re apt to see a vast array of our world’s different cultures and lifestyles, and they’re all about just having a great time.

Big Bear Winter Festival, February 27th 

Big Bear, CA, January 23rd, 2016 – The first-ever Big Bear Winter Festival means so much more than traditional play in the snow! Winter sports have ordinarily been of the ski or snowboard or ice skate or luge variety, and while we wouldn’t want to see those snowy standards going away, it’s always interesting to see what kind of new winter fun people are getting up to.
