Big Bear Lake Vacations

Prime opportunities for outdoor recreation draw visitors year-round to Big Bear Lake, a city at 6,750 feet in the San Bernardino Mountains of Southern California. A Big Bear Lake vacation can mean skiing and snowboarding in winter, summer hikes in the national forest, fishing and boating on the lake, or doing little more than relaxing and enjoying the scenery.

Major Attractions

In winter, two ski resorts -- Bear Mountain and Snow Summit -- are the major attraction of Big Bear Lake packages. Spend days downhill skiing or snowboarding, or try snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. Snow play areas are also available for sledding and tubing. In other seasons, the resorts offer hiking and mountain biking trails, and you can ride the scenic sky chair to the top of Snow Summit. The fishing season starts in April; take to the lake to catch trout, catfish, and largemouth bass. The lake also offers opportunities for boating, water skiing, kayaking, and stand-up paddle boarding. Visit the Big Bear Discovery Center to learn about forest stewardship and let the children connect with nature at the outdoor discovery zone. You can also arrange off-road Jeep tours at the center.

Recurring Festivals and Events

From June to September, the Music in the Mountains Summer Concert Series brings classic rock bands to the outdoor amphitheater at the Big Bear Discovery Center. Another big annual event is the Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest, held on weekends from mid-September until the end of October. Entertainment and events, including live music, German food and beer, log-sawing contests, and other games, take place at the Convention Center, which is within walking distance of many Big Bear Lake hotels .
