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. Something that’s been growing for awhile now is the bike-to-snow trend, as in fat bikes, those cycles ready-made for snowy terrain, and Big Bear is all about this here-to-stay trend.
Saturday February 27th is the date of the fest, and people participating in the Big Bear event, which is
billed as “the only organized fat bike ride in California,” will have four different courses to roll down, from six miles to 18, and all tracks are groomed.
The Snow Summit party continues into Sunday with a snowshoe showdown, with live music and other mountain-style fun, either soaked-in-the-sun, or the snowy skies of our pristine winter sports wonderland!
