Big Bear Lake’s Winter Weather Activities

Big Bear Cabins

Big Bear Lake is famous for small cozy cabins with fireplaces and beautiful winter scenery. This year, most of the snow is at the Resorts. If you’re not a skier or snowboarder, there are still plenty of things to do in the valley. We suggest you give the Alpine Slide a try, or go hiking or horseback riding.

For the Boarders and Skiers, both Bear Mountain and Snow Summit have a base of one to two feet of snow with lots of features. Bear Mountain will sponsor a Rail Jam on Sunday, January 19th. Registration begins at 8:00 AM. Snow Summit will be sponsoring the Goldsmith Races Series on the same day. If you plan to spend the day on the slopes, drink plenty of water and wear sunscreen!

The Alpine Slide has two locations. One is just west of the Village and the other is Big Bear City adjacent, at Division. The Slide is family friendly with plenty of entertainment for the kids. We like the east Big Bear location because it doesn’t get as crowded. Most of the kids will slide for a half day and then get tired in this altitude. Be sure to dress warm if you plan to play on the snow. (909) 866-4626

We’ve been enjoying beautiful southern California winter weather this year. Our high temperatures have been in the mid fifties with lows in the twenties. Most of the hiking trails are accessible and snow free. We were out on the Pacific Crest Trail this week, out in Baldwin Lake. The views are magnificent.

Baldwin Lake Stables are located in the east Valley. You can schedule a group ride or a private ride. Give them a call for reservations. The conditions are great! (909) 585-6482
