Snowboarding in Big Bear

During the winter, Big Bear turns into a snowboarder’s paradise. The mountains surrounding Big Bear Lake have two ski resorts with more than 40 runs and hundreds of acres of skiable terrain. The resorts are sister resorts, so a pass to one gets you access to both parks. Between the two parks are more than 2,000 vertical feet of runs accessible by 28 chairlifts.

Snowboarding Bear Mountain

Both ski resorts have a variety of terrain parks where snowboarders can hone their skills before heading out on the mountain’s runs. While both Bear Mountain and Snow Summit are used by both snowboarders and skiers, Bear Mountain is more popular among snowboarders because of its vertical terrain. Bear Mountain also has a terrain park which is similar to a skate park. At the terrain park, snowboarders can test their skills on boxes, rails, tables, poles, walls, and jumps. The terrain park also has a mini pipe, a halfpipe, and Southern California’s only snow superpipe.

Beginner snowboarders should try the Easy Street or Hidden Valley runs. Once you’re more confident in your skills, you can try out the intermediate Accelerator or Boneyard runs. Advanced snowboarders may want to try the double black diamond Geronimo run which starts at the top of Bear Peak, or The Wedge, a double black diamond run that starts at the top of Silver Mountain.

Snowboarding Lessons

If you would like to learn how to snowboard, Big Bear offers private and group snowboarding lessons. Lessons are available for anyone from age four to adults. The Skill Builder park on Bear Mountain is a great place to learn to snowboard. The Skill Builder park is similar to the terrain park but has smaller features. You can test out your snowboarding skills on smaller features that are low to the ground, including rails, boxes, and table tops.

Snowboard Rentals

Big Bear Mountain offers snowboard rentals at both of their resorts. You can rent everything you need, including a snowboard, boots, and snowboard bindings. Burton Learn to Ride equipment is also available at both resorts. This equipment is great for first-time snowboarders and includes a snowboard with slightly beveled edges for anti-fatigue.

North Shore is one of two marinas on Big Bear Lake. This Big Bear marina is a one-stop shop for all your water sport needs. You can take wakeboard and waterski rides and rent kayaks, pontoon boats, fishing equipment, Jet Skis and canoes.

Big Bear Marina Boat Rentals

North Shore offers one-person, two-person and three-person jet ski rentals. If this is your first time riding one or you just need a refresher course, North Shore has you covered. Friendly staff will make sure you feel comfortable with your new ride.

If you’re bringing family and friends, try Big Bear marina boat rentals, like a speed boat! It’s a fun, adventurous, adrenaline-fueled way to enjoy your vacation at Big Bear. Bring a cooler on the boat, pack a lunch and make it a day. Better yet, rent inner tubes to pull behind your boat and your kids will never forget their trip to Big Bear Lake.

Pontoon boats, or party barges, also are a great way to enjoy the day, especially if you have a larger party or have small children. Pontoon boats offer a slower-paced, easy way to enjoy the lake. Anchor and stay awhile while you eat your lunch, drink your beer and let the kids swim and fish.

All Big Bear marina boat rentals are stocked with Coast Guard life preservers for adults as well as an anchor, paddle, horn, lines, fenders, throwable device and fire extinguisher. Ski jackets are available free of charge for children as young as 6 months old to adults.

No trip to Big Bear Lake is a complete without a lake tour aboard the lake’s pirate ship, “Time Bandit,” which is sailed by pirates! North Shore Big Bear marina offers daily tours for all ages. Each captain puts his or her own twist on the tour, so use your imagination and have some fun with it. Adults cost $22, seniors 64 and over cost $20, children 3 and over cost $14, and children less than 2 are free.

Snowshoeing in Big Bear

Big Bear snowshoeing is a breathtakingly beautiful and immensely fun experience. Take a break from skiing or snowboarding and explore the beauty of the forest and snow-dusted pine trees in solitude. Leave the busy trails of the ski resorts behind and breathe in the fresh mountain air. Walk through the fresh, fallen snow and look out for animal tracks. You may see hoof prints in the snow or even encounter a squirrel or deer.

Snowshoeing in Big Bear also enables you to access trails that skiers and snowboarders can’t. It also gets your heart pumping while enjoying the great outdoors in an intense but scenic workout. This mellow, yet effective cardio workout is so fun, you won’t even realize you are getting exercise.

Plan Your Walk

The trails that are popular for hiking in the summer can also be great for snowshoeing in the winter. Pine Knot Trail is an easy snowshoeing trail with parking. Park at the Aspen Glen Picnic Area and follow signs to the trailhead. The trail will head you to Grand View Point where you will be rewarded with stunning views of the San Bernardino Valley. The trail is a long one, at 6-miles round trip, so make sure to dress warm and bring plenty of food and water.

Town Trail is a shorter and more flat option for snowshoeing. The trail starts at Snow Summit and is less than 3-miles round trip. Along the way, there will be several spots where you can stop and enjoy views of the sparkling waters of Big Bear Lake.

For a truly unforgettable experience, go for a full moonlight snowshoe walk. The moonlight will be bright enough that you won’t need a headlamp as you walk through the glistening moonlit snow. Make sure to wear plenty of warm clothing and pack some warm drinks, as the temperatures are much colder at night.

Snowshoe Tours

Action Snowshoe offers three-hour snowshoe tours. Tours are open to everyone over the age of 10 and are suitable for all experience levels. Snowshoes and poles are provided, and an experienced guide will lead you through the pine trees and snow-capped mountains. Tours can be customized based on the skill levels in your group, and in total you will usually get 2 – 2 ½ hours on the trail. Snowshoe tours cost $87 per person and each tour needs a minimum of 2 people.

Planning Your Stay

After a day in the snow, head back to your cabin and warm up in front of the fireplace. If you are looking for accommodations in near Big Bear Lake, consider booking one of our vacation homes.
