Vacations are for making memories. Holidays are for making memories. Why not combine the two and have an amazing Big Bear experience this winter? One of the truly great things about Big Bear is the variety of activities available. Whether you are a couple, a family with kids or a large group, there is something for you! What does Big Bear have to offer? Here are just some of the fun, winter activities to take part in.

Big-Bear-Lake-Cross-Country-Skiing_33_656x420Looking for some action? Try your legs at skiing or snowboarding at one of our world-class resorts. You can get private or group lessons, rent equipment or get a package that includes everything you’ll need for a day of winter fun. The view from the top is spectacular!

Do you want to experience the view at a slower pace? Well then, cross-country skiing or snowshoeing is the way to go. There are several different trails and difficulties to suit your needs. Experience the forests of Big Bear under sparkling blue skies!

Maybe you want to experience the snow without all the work? Then tubing is where it’s at. We have two snow play resorts that feature ‘magic carpets’ to get you up the hill so that you can spend more time enjoying getting down. Race your family members down one of the longest runs in Southern California.

How about seeing Big Bear from a different perspective? Take a Helicopter tour of the snow-covered Valley, a Segway tour through town or a Jeep Tour into the forest that finishes with an exhilarating zip-lining experience through the treetops.

We also have, ice skating, horseback riding, bowling, laser tag, movie theaters, spas, a museum, a zoo and so much more. There are restaurants and bars for every taste, live music, and the Village is packed full of charming shops. We really do have it all!

If you are lucky enough to spend the Holidays with us, you can take part in Santa’s Grand Entrance and Village Tree Lighting Ceremony, Christmas in the Village, the New Year’s Eve Torchlight Parade or New Year’s Eve parties at Bear Mountain, Snow Summit or several other places in the Valley.

cedarfrontwinterAfter you’ve spent the day experiencing all of the action Big Bear has to offer, you’ll want to wind down in a cozy cabin, with a roaring fire, a soak in the spa and maybe a friendly game of pool, foosball or air hockey.

“The English Beat” at the Cave

Nov 25, 2016 | 06:30PM – 11:30PM

The English Beat is a band with an energetic mix of musical styles and a sound like no other. The band’s unique sound has allowed it to endure for nearly three decades and appeal to fans, young and old, all over the world.

When The English Beat (known simply as The Beat in their native England) rushed on to the music scene in 1979, it was a time of massive social and political unrest and economic and musical upheaval. This set the stage for a period of unbridled musical creativity, and thanks in large part to the Punk movement and it’s DIY approach to making music, artists like The Beat were able to speak out and speak their mind on the news of the day, as in “Stand Down Margaret”, things that mattered to them and the youth culture, as in “Get A Job”, and universal matters of the heart and soul, as in their classic hits “I Confess” and “Save It For Later”.

The Cave is a new, intimate music venue in Big Bear that promises to bring you up close and personal with its performers. Doors open at 6:30 pm Concert starts at 7:30 pm. Call or visit website for ticket information.

Location: The Cave at 40789 Village Drive, Big Bear Lake, CA 92315

“Los Lobos” at the Cave

Dec 30, 2016 | 06:30PM – 11:30PM

More than three decades have passed since Los Lobos released their debut album, Just Another Band from East L.A. Since then they’ve repeatedly disproven that title—Los Lobos isn’t “just another” anything, but rather a band that has consistently evolved artistically while never losing sight of their humble roots.

Los Lobos were already East L.A. neighborhood legends, Sunset Strip regulars and a Grammy Award winning band (Best Mexican-American/Tejano Music Performance) by the time they recorded their major label debut How Will The Wolf Survive? in 1984.Although the album’s name and title song were inspired by a National Geographic article about real life wolves in the wild, the band—David Hidalgo, Louie Perez, Cesar Rosas, Conrad Lozano and Steve Berlin—saw parallels with their struggle to gain mainstream rock success while maintaining their Mexican roots.

Perez, the band’s drummer, once called their powerhouse mix of rock, Tex-Mex, country, folk, R&B, blues and traditional Spanish and Mexican music “the soundtrack of the barrio.” Three decades, two more Grammys, a worldwide smash single (“La Bamba”) and thousands of rollicking performances across the globe later, Los Lobos is surviving quite well — and still jamming with the same raw intensity as they had when they began in that garage in 1973.

The Cave is a new, intimate music venue in Big Bear that promises to bring you up close and personal with its performers. Doors open at 6:30 pm Concert starts at 8:30 pm. Call or visit website for ticket information.
