Whether you have already booked a cabin with us for the coming weeks in Big Bear, or if you are still making plans (visit us at RSVacations.net for some great cabins!), you may be wondering what there is to do in December 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! STAY TUNED FOR OPENING DAY INFORMATION!!

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 DECEMBER! 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

Another benefit of the fall-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?

“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.

Snow in SpringWe have had some pretty wild weather the last couple of weeks here in Big Bear Lake, but that is pretty normal for this time of the year. Springtime in the mountains is both beautiful and unpredictable. Our unsettled weather is not over yet, with showers expected this weekend and possibly next weekend as well. Do not let that deter you from planning a visit, though! The storms this time of year generally pass through pretty quickly and leave behind fresh, clean air and a forest renewed!

This spring, be sure to visit the Big Bear Discovery Center for several FREE activities that the whole family will enjoy. This weekend, be sure to catch Big Bear High School’s production of Tarzan onstage at the Performing Arts Center. The show is getting fantastic reviews and they even have a live band performing the music! Check out the flyer below for more on these activities and other things to do in Big Bear this weekend.

  • “Jumping Jack Flash” Stones Tribute at the Cave

Apr 16, 2016 | 06:30PM – 11:30PM

It began for them the way it always has–in a dimly lit, smoky nightclub. But who that was present at those long-ago performances by the Rolling Stones would have guessed that they’d become icons, and perhaps the most revered and enduring act of all-time? Imagine walking into a nearby historic theater and happening upon a performance by the youthful Stones!

They’re all there; Mick is prancing and gyrating, Keith is ripping licks and prowling the stage with his trusty beat-up Fender guitar. Charlie and Bill are intense as they lay down the back-beat, and Brian Jones looks regal as he lords over his stage.

But there’s something amiss; although this incredible scenario has most certainly taken place, this isn’t swinging London circa 1964 but rather, your town today.

Put down that pint, mate… take a closer look–it’s Jumping Jack Flash, the world’s greatest tribute to the Rolling Stones!

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.

The Young Eagles program is held at the Airport and flys on the second Saturday of each month from 9:00 a.m. to noon, May through September. This is a wonderful experience for young flyers. The Young Eagles program was started by the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) in an effort to stimulate interest in aviation for young people.

Children between the ages of 8 and 17 are offered a free airplane ride around the Big Bear area by pilots from the Pilot’s Association. Pilots must be a member of the Pilot’s Association and the EAA in order to participate in this program. We have run this program for five years and have flown thousands of children. Each child will be given a pre-flight review of the basics of flight and the main parts of an airplane prior to the flight.

No appointments are necessary, but each child must be accompanied by a parent or adult who must sign a release of liability for the child and can then take pictures of the happy flyer after their flight.

Due to inclement weather at times in Big Bear, Young Eagles flights may be cancelled at short notice.

For further information on this program call Roger Schmidt at (909)547-0832. For additional background information and activity suggestions log on to the Young Eagles web site at www.youngeagles.org.
