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.

wow, talk about crowded. Dont come up here on a weekend. Had to park 2 miles away and rode up in back of a truck, 1 hour ski rental line, lift line at bottom was 30 to 45 min. Staff was really friendly. Lines for food at main lodge were 45 min long but could spend 10 min and get... More

There is an area for everyone here but the areas really don't over lap so if you have many level skiers in your group don't plan on spending the day together. There is a nice area with a few runs for beginners and then there are quite a few more runs for advanced skiers. The runs are well kept and... More

The drive up the mountain to get to the resort was was a bit heinous, but the views were spectacular! The ski season was winding down so there wasn't a whole lot of snow on the mountain. This, however, made for some great spring conditions. Was able to hit the hill in jeans and t-shirt. Black diamond runs were still... More

I went to Bear Mountain for opening day with my family (11/25/16). My husband and son snowboard and I ski. Only two lifts and runs open. I have never seen so many HORRIBLE snowboarders and skiers in my life. The runs weren't very wide and there were snowboarders wiping out all over the place and then staying in the middle... More

They have many beginner runs. There are two beginner runs that are accessible from the lodge and several others that you can get to from up there. EASY runs for first-timers. Snow Summit only has one run for first-time beginners, so go the Bear Mountain for beginners.
