Big Bear is known for its winter activities, skiing, snowboarding, sledding, tubing or even just the amazing view of the snow covered mountains. I’m a regular up in the mountains, being from San Diego, starting November I would always head out with friends for some snowboarding. Big Bear is a three hour drive from San Diego or a two hour drive from Los Angeles via CA 210.

The number one and must see attraction of course is Big Bear Lake, with activities both during the summer and winter.

 

Things to do in the winter:

1. Skiing/Snowboarding

2. Check out Pine knot village

3. Kayaking/Canoeing (Check ahead of time, further in the winter the lake is completely frozen)

4. Cross Country and Snowshoeing

5.Solar observatory

Travel Tips >> Think ahead of time of the recreational activities you would like to do and rent out the equipment as soon as you come into Big Bear or if possible further out because once you get to the top of the mountain, equipment can get way more expensive. It is still at a reasonable price, for example snowboard and boots for $45 at the mountain but you can probably get them for $25-30 further out.
