Things to Do in Big Bear

Things to Do in Big Bear

Big Bear Lake is a mountain retreat, an oasis in the rugged and pristine wilderness of the San Bernardino Mountains. From the soaring peaks of our two ski resorts to the wild shores and emerald waters of the lake itself, there is so much to do here, winter, spring, summer, and fall, that one article hardly does it all justice.

Perfect Powder

Nestled in the mountains, both Big Bear Mountain and Summit Snow ski resorts are blessed with near-perfect conditions and long seasons, perfect for skiers and snowboarders alike. Cross-country trails and winter ice fishing are popular for outdoor enthusiasts, and local restaurants beckon with warm fireplaces and comforting food after a brisk day in the elements.

Fun in the Sun

The crown jewel of the area, Big Bear Lake is a perfect spot to relax during the heat of the summer. Rent a powerboat, learn to sail, or tackle our excellent fishing. For adventure enthusiasts there is mountain biking, parasailing, and horseback riding on the hundreds of miles of wilderness trails. Nature lovers will want for nothing as they traverse forest trails. Keep an eye out for our local wildlife such as our resident bald eagles!

At our impeccable vacation rentals at Big Bear Resorts you are tucked away in a nature retreat all your own, yet you’ll be just minutes away from the lake, world-class skiing, and fabulous dining and shopping. Check out our local museums, grab a bite to eat lakeside, and watch the sunset and the stars dazzle in our clear mountain skies.
