Spa Day

Pamper your body with a relaxing day at the spa this Easter. Start with a massage, then pamper the rest of your body if you please.

Beautify every inch with a facial or back facial that targets your skin’s unique needs. Ask about packages as well as services just for men.

The Alpine Slide at Big Bear Magic Mountain is open year-round and never fails to entertain. Hours vary by season. The chair lift to the top offers a beautiful view of the area as you head up.

At the top, prepare for an unforgettable ride down the area’s only authentic bobsled experience. Teens and adults will love piloting their own sleds, which are individually controlled so you can go as slow or as fast as you want down your choice of two separate quarter-mile long cement tracks. Careen around high banking turns and into straightaways that will have you cruising as fast as you want and have your adrenaline pumping by the time you reach the bottom. Riders must be at least 36” tall to ride, and children under 48” tall must ride with an adult age 18 or older.

Rent a boat and cruise the lake, or up the adrenaline with wakeboarding, jet skis, or water skiing.

Visit one of the six marinas at the lake and rent gear for kayaking, canoeing, paddleboarding, and more. Those who don’t want to get wet can opt to stay on shore and play in the sand, sunbathe, or plant the beach umbrella and just chill out for a while.
