My First Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest!
First, a bit of personal history. My name is Ali and I’m from Idaho. I lived there my entire life until I moved to Big Bear in June. I’ve been asked countless times, “why on earth would you move from Idaho to California?” The reasons were simple: 1)

It’s about reconnecting—to nature, to your friends, your loved ones. Explore the Big Bear winter wilderness on snowshoes, go on a guided off-road tour, take your pick and carve the slopes at Snow Summit or Bear Mountain, or go really big and do them both.
There really is no better winter destination in SoCal. We’re really close to several major airports, and just a few hours’ drive from Los Angeles. And yet up here, in the altitude, with the peaks all glistening under snowcaps and the crisp air filling your lungs, LA might be the last thing on your mind.
This winter season is going to be an epic one. We had our earliest snowfall on record! The slopes are open and churning, the season is officially on. And if you’re not in the mood to be up on the hill, our little Big Bear Village is a big time too. Great shopping, carriage rides, fine or casual dining, live music, bowling . . . the list goes on.
Remember: Things book up fast, so start booking now.
