All the Big Bear Lake activities you love: paddle boarding, pontoon boating, sailing, windsurfing, wakeboarding, waterskiing. The list goes on…

Big bear is Southern California’s favorite ski destination. With two ski resorts, Snow Summit & Bear Mountain, Big Bear offers great options for all levels of skiing and Snowboarding.

Big Bear boasts literally the best snow making in the world. With the most advanced snow making equipment, some invented here, other resort operators come here to learn from the best. So we always have snow – no matter what the weather is doing.

Which Resort is best for me?

While both disciplines use either resort, Snow Summit tends to have more skiers, and Bear Mountain is designed with an inclination toward snow boarders – no pun intended.

Big Bear is also home to the Snow Summit Race Team, a U-18 ski program with three different levels of coached skiing. For the little guys, there is the Development Team, or D-Team which builds skiing fundamentals. After passing a skills test, the young athletes can move on to either the competitive Race Team or the non-competitive All-Mountain Team. The Race Team travels California competing, and Snow Summit hosts travel-club races as well.

For the over 18 skiers, there is a Master’s Program, as well as a night ski league, with drop-ins always welcome – and no race experience required!

Always looking to support outdoor activities and all kinds of children’s programs, The Win Group proudly sponsors the youth Race Team’s racing bibs.
