The 2nd Annual Ryan Hall “Conquer the Wall” takes place on August 11th with proceeds to benefit the BBHS Cross Country Program

Ryan grew up only 5 minutes away from Snow Summit and incorporated weekly 1 mile timed runs up “The Wall” ski run.  The current high school cross country team in Big Bear still utilizes this course every summer for their training, hoping to reach the heights that Ryan Hall established.  Three State Champions later….it seems to be working!

Please also note that “Conquer the Wall” is asking for donations of used running/basketball/soccer shoes that will help local fundraising efforts in partnership with Angel Bins . During the race, we will be taking donations of athletic shoes – running, basketball, or soccer cleats – that are still in good condition.  For more information on Angel Bins please Click Here

“Visions” Rush Tribute at the Cave

Aug 31, 2018 | 06:30PM – 11:30PM

We have a VISION to bring the world renowned RUSH concert to the masses. Since the announcement that Rush has officially retired from the touring scene, their diehard fans the world over, are in need of their fix of live Rush music. While many tributes find it necessary to get the “look” of the band just right with wigs and other attire, Visions believes that the music is #1. The common Rush Head is very skeptical of anyone attempting to reproduce Rush music with any proficiency, not to mention very quick to point out ANY mistakes. With this in mind, and being die hard Rush fans ourselves, the choice to make sure every nuance of a song, from samples to vocal harmonies to analog keyboards, is the priority.

A Visions show is a state of the art experience that should be seen by Rush fans worldwide. It is our dream, and our mission, to do just that.

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

hiking-header.png

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? 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.

The Spazmatics were born in the spring of 1983 when physics professor Kevin Stigwood of Alta Dena High in Thousand Oaks California, lost a debate over String Theory to an upstart pupil in front of the entire student body and faculty. As agreed to by both parties, the loser would have to do anything that the winner demanded, and the victorious prodigy demanded that Mr. Stigwood perform “She Blinded Me With Science” by Thomas Dolby during half-time at an upcoming state basketball championship game.
