Came here with my husband and 3 teenaged boys for our spring break. I thought the ski lifts and lessons were affordable. We had a group ski lesson for 2 hours and then were free to enjoy ourselves on the mountain after that. Though I didn't do too well with my skiing, the rest of my family had a blast!... More

While its not skiing in the Rockies, its surprisingly serviceable for a ski location so far to the south. The fact that their is skiing available in sunny warm southern California is amazing. Its a several magnitudes less then "resort" level skiing one gets at big bear, or whistler. Its more on par with the mid size regional ski hills... More

Even at the end of the snow season there was enough snow to snowboard! First timers and had a blast! Family of 4 with 2 teenagers! Great fun, great staff and fantastic snowboard instructor, Matt! He was very patient with us! Recommend him for first timers! We'll be back next year!

It was very crowded despite being a week after President's Day 3 day weekend. Great snow conditions have mean large crowds and lots of fun. Bring your patience. especially if you have to rent ski equipment

We went to Big Bear Mountain for a ski trip. The mountain was decent to ski but very frustrated fighting the slopes with so many people. It was packed!! The lines to get on the lifts were worse than Disney lines. The rentals and lift ticket lines were horrible as well. Would not pick this Mountain to ski again. Many... More

A spectacular place to visit and have fun! The little town of Big Bear is quite picturesque and cozy, with lots of places to visit, drink and eat. If you wanna have a peaceful time you must visit the lake zone and admire the stunning natural sightseeing. And of course, if you like winter sports you cannot skip the visit... More

This was by far one of the most memorable seasons of multiple snow storms that allowed an amazing base to form, and the mountain, blanketed with fresh powder, is still an amazing sight a month after the first real snowfall of the year! Come up and enjoy the mountains and all that they hold in their winter glory.
