Whether you have already booked a cabin with us for the coming Valentines/President’s Day Weekend in Big Bear, or if you are still making plans (visit us at RSVacations.net for some great, last-minute deals on Big Bear Cabins!), you may be wondering what there is to do in February in the mountains when there is no snow on the ground. Don’t worry, there is more to do than you might think! Today I will talk about just some of the fun things to do here in beautiful Big Bear Lake-with or without snow!

Snow Summit boarderSkiing and Snowboarding

No matter what mood Mother Nature is in, Big Bear Ski Resorts take matters into their own hands. With a world-class snow-making system in place, you can hit the slopes even when the snow is not falling. As a bonus, it is much more fun to ski and board when temps are in the 50’s than when it is freezing!

Snow Tubingsnow tubing 1

Just like our Ski Resorts, Big Bear’s Snow Play Areas have the ability to make their own snow, and boy have they been busy at it! The coverage is great and with their “Magic Carpets”, you can enjoy an entire day of tubing fun without all the climbing!

Biking

Do you feel more comfortable on two wheels than on two planks of wood? Another positive of the mild weather is that you can take a bike ride – IN FEBRUARY! Choose a comfort bike and take a leisurely spin along the lake or rent a mountain bike and hit the trails.

Horseback Riding

Enjoy the beauty of the mountains and explore the back-country from horseback. You will have some terrific photo opportunities as well when you get to the top and see the gorgeous, panoramic views of Big Bear Valley.

Off-Road 4×4 Tours

Get off the beaten path and see and learn about Big Bear’s rich history when you take an Off-road Tour. Several different tours are available.

Helicopter Big Bear

See Big Bear Lake from a whole new perspective – the air! Enjoy the stunning scenery of our beautiful Valley, Lake and surrounding Forest. Bring your camera!

hiking-header.pngHiking

Another benefit of the spring-like weather we are experiencing is that the trails around our forest are clear and accessible for hiking. Grab a trail map from the Discovery Center and set out on a nature hike with the family. From beginner to expert trails, there is something for every level of hiker.

Ziplining

Experience the sensation of flight as you zip through the forest. A real adrenaline rush for the whole family!

The Big Bear Alpine Zoobaby-raccoon

View and learn about over 180 animals at our local zoo. Check out our Grizzly Bears, Wolves, Mountain Lion, Deer and more. Feeding tours and special presentations on most days.

Bowling, Laser-Tag, Arcade & Ice Skating

Head over to the Bowling Barn and Big Bear Funplex for hours of family fun. Go Ice Skating on real ice, get competitive at Laser Tag or just enjoy the arcade. Have a blast going Glow Bowling at night!

Scavenger Hunt Adventure

Have you ever wanted to be on ‘The Amazing Race’? Now is your chance – sort of! Set out on a 1.5 hour walking adventure in and around The Big Bear Village. Using your smartphone, you will solve clues and complete challenges while learning local history and fun-facts.

Shopping, Eating and Music

Stroll through the Big Bear Lake Village and enjoy the unique shops and quaint atmosphere. Catch a movie at the local Theater, dine at one of the many delicious restaurants, take a Horse-Drawn Carriage Ride around town or enjoy a live concert at The Cave. When the sun goes down, grab a cup of hot chocolate and sit by one of the fire-pits or check out one of the night clubs for some live music.

The Discovery Center

If you want to find out where to hike, bike or otherwise get in touch with nature, the Big Bear Discovery Center is the place to start. Get trail maps, learn how to be prepared and take an interpretive tour through the forest. Special presentations and celebrations are happening all the time.

 

As you can see, Big Bear Lake has so much more to offer than just snow! Come on up to our sparkling blue skies, crisp air and stunning forest. You will love it!! Do you need somewhere to stay? RS Vacations has cabins for every group and budget. Check out the “Our Homes” tab at the top of this page to see what we have to offer, then visit our website to book your perfect Big Bear Cabin.

  • “Youth Orchestras Unite” Pasadena Youth Orchestra and the All Mountain String Ensemble at the PAC

    Feb 08, 2014 | 02:00PM – 05:00PM

    The Arts Council of Big Bear Valley presents “Youth Orchestras Unite” a special collaboration between the Pasadena Youth String Orchestra and Wind Ensemble and the All Mountain String Ensemble conducted by Sharon Rizzo. The performance is FREE to all.

    The Pasadena Youth Symphony Orchestra has continually offered robust musical training and personal development for young musicians throughout the San Gabriel Valley for over 40 years.

    The PYSO String Orchestra is a separate and integral division of the Pasadena Youth Symphony Orchestra. This all-string ensemble, led by conductor Pin Chen, has steadily developed into a prestigious and important asset to PYSO. The String Orchestra provides a unique musical opportunity for string players, grades 6-9, to experience vital musical growth and perform orchestral arrangements within a string ensemble.

    The PYSO Wind Ensemble made its debut in 2007. Under the direction of long time conductor and music educator Gary Yearick, this ensemble includes woodwind, brass, and percussion players in grades 6-9 and provides a much-needed venue for wind players and percussionists to sharpen their skills. The Wind Ensemble will occasionally partner with the String Orchestra in performance, giving all musicians the opportunity to perform within a full symphony orchestra setting.

    The All Mountain String Ensemble is a combination of the top students in the Big Bear Lighthouse Youth Orchestras and the Arrowhead Arts Youth String Ensembles in the mountains of Southern California.   These programs have been solely developed through the tenacity and intense desire of their director, Sharon Rizzo. The students, grades 6-10, compete individually, as well as collectively, on their instruments and have become regionally recognized, winning top honors at music festivals and competitions.  They enjoy performing a variety of genres in many unique venues, on and off the mountain.
