Snow Play in Big Bear Lake

Added: Mar 09, 2019
Category: Winter in Big Bear

A a great place to have fun in the snow is the Snow Play Hill at Magic Mountain. They’re always the first in the Valley to begin to blow snow and open to the public. The Snow Play Hill is located in central Big Bear Lake, just west of the Village. Night Sessions are Friday and Saturday nights beginning the Friday, day after Thanksgiving. The current cost is $15 per person. Last year, the snow play area had a base depth of 30 feet.

Use the Magic Carpet, an automated covered lift, transporting you to the top of the hill. Children ages two to six years of age can ride free with a paying adult over 18 years old. Make advance reservations for groups of 35 or more and receive special group rates.

Big Bear Snow Play, on the east side of Big Bear Lake is also owned by the Alpine Slide. We love inner tubing here. The lines tend to be shorter. The hours of operation are 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. The heated “lodge” offers light snacks, coffee and hot chocolate.

Both Bear Mountain Resort and Snow Summit always blows snow when conditions exist, so, even if natural snow isn't present they assure the resorts have a good base machine groomed, hard packed powder. A lift chair ticket is good for either Resort. Use the shuttle bus and try both resorts.

Bear Mountain caters more to snowboarders and a younger set. They are known for their snowboarding park with sculpted features, rails and boxes.

Snow Summit is more family style, catering to skiers. No matter which resort you choose, we recommend you bring your own snacks and beverages. You’ll enjoy your time on the mountain better if you buy your lift ticket online rather than waiting in line. Don't forget to check out our cabin rentals to choose the perfect cabin for your visit! We’ve got a cabin that’s right for you!

The Big Bear Lake Discovery Center offers snowshoeing in the winter.  The Discovery Center is run by the San Bernardino National Forest Association. This is an excellent resource for maps, permits, eco-tours and special events. Stop here for questions about winter hiking. They can advise you on forest snow conditions. Contact them at 909-382-2796.
