Vacations are for making memories. Holidays are for making memories. Why not combine the two and have an amazing Big Bear experience this winter?

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.

Snow Summit’s annual torchlight parade is Big Bear’s signature New Year’s Eve event, a holiday attraction not seen anywhere else in Southern California! The mountain resort is only a two hour drive from most Southern California communities and is a great escape from the norm. Monday, December 31 at 7 p.m. 250 skiers and snowboarders, some dressed in eccentric holiday costumes, will descend down snow capped mountains with lit torches to create a spectacular display of illumination.

The free event can be seen from a range of vantage points throughout Big Bear. Besides the torchlight parade, Big Bear has a variety of recreational activities happening after the sun goes down including night-session skiing at Snow Summit and inner tubing under-the-lights at Alpine Slide at Magic Mountain. Festive celebrations happening throughout the valley include distinctive holiday menus, special musical guests, and reasonable admission charges. Wyatt’s at the Big Bear Lake Convention Center and Nottinghams Restaurant all plan to bring down the house this New Year’s Eve with a bang!

Snow Summit is open for night skiing from 3 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., with a brief interruption of course for the torchlight parade. Celebrations at both ski resorts begin, after the impressive parade ends. Snow Summit is known for its fun filled evening of dancing and good times that goes well into the night with a DJ spinning high-energy music. The celebration begins at 8 p.m. and goes to 1 p.m. The cover charge is $35 and includes party favors and light appetizers.

Bear Mountain offers a more edgy festivity with DJ’s spinning modern rock and hip hop music. Bear Mountain’s New Years Eve celebration starts at 9 p.m. and end at 1 a.m. The cover charge is $35 and includes heavy appetizers.

Guests must be 21 years or older and reservations are recommended for all Big Bear New Year’s Eve celebrations. Can’t find lodging for New Years Eve and to learn more about New Year’s Eve in Big Bear call 800-424-4232.
