Spring Fever hits me every February, (yes I realize it’s now mid-March, but my fever hits early). It’s that cusp between full blown winter and hints of warmness. I think longingly of warm sunny days, crisp nights and the knowledge that summer is just around the corner. I realize this is a bit hasty. I mean, it’s still technically winter, but I cannot stop the daydreams of tank tops, shorts and longer days.
Spring Break is a really great time to come to Big Bear Lake. We have so many year round activities, but spring is the best. Trees and flowers are starting to bud making it a fun time of year to go hiking. Big Bear has more hiking trails than you can count, from beginner to expert. The Discovery Center on the North Shore is a great place to take your kids and explore the forest. Take a walk up Cougar Crest Trail where it meets the Pacific Crest Trail. You can be a trail angel and leave goodies for the PCT hikers! For more information on what the Discovery Center has to offer, visit: http://mountainsfoundation.org
We’ve had a wonderful winter in terms of snow. Snow Summit and Bear Mountain should be open until the end of March, and if we get some more storms, maybe even April. Both of our tubing hills will also be open.
Prefer water over snow? Big Bear Lake reopens April 1st. Clearly a sign that summer cannot be far off! Go fishing, take the boat out, dip your toes in the water!!!! Book a spot on the pirate ship and learn about the history of Big Bear Lake.
After a full winter of books, learning and being inside while at school, the kids deserve to have some outdoor time and so do you! We have a spring promotion going on with incredible discounts that will save the pocket book. Give us a call – our vacation planners would love to assist you with creating the best spring break ever!!
