As we have been enjoying spectacular, spring weather the last several days, I got to thinking how very much I love springtime in Big Bear. It brought to mind a post of mine from last year at this time and I decided to share it once again. Yes, Big Bear is a beautiful wintertime destination (the slopes are still open so come on up!), but it is not only a wintertime destination. Enjoy!
As winter (if you want to call it that this year :( ) in Big Bear Lake winds down, I can’t help but look forward to springtime in the mountains. I love the warming days and cool nights, the flowers and trees blooming, the blue skies….truly beautiful.
One of the most surprising things to me is that most people believe that Big Bear is strictly a winter destination – no more than a ski town. I can’t even count how many guests this year asked me what we do up here the rest of the year. Or, when I suggested that they visit us in spring or summer, they asked “but what is there to do?”
I guess I take it all for granted because I’ve lived here since I was 7, but truly, winter is my least favorite season in Big Bear. Don’t get me wrong, the snow is beautiful and I do enjoy skiing, but there is just so much more to do in the other months. Lake activities such as kayaking, fishing, boating and more, golfing, mountain biking, hiking, horseback riding, the zoo, the alpine slide and waterslide. The list goes on. Not to mention the shopping and restaurants in The Village, art shows, wine walks, car shows, music events, theater offerings and the Independence Day fireworks show.
While ‘June gloom’ gets you down, we are enjoying sparkling blue skies! When you are sweating it out in July, we are putting on a light sweater for our evening walks. Seriously people, it is GORGEOUS up here in the spring, summer and fall!! And guess what? It is less expensive to enjoy Big Bear in the “off” seasons as well. Do yourself a favor and come up to explore Big Bear Lake in the warmer months. You will be amazed at our perfect weather and how much there is to do up here.
