Winter is on the Way

Are you feeling it yet? Winter is on the way, and with it will come our favorite time of year.  Winter brings so many fun things to Big Bear, and we often get booked solid as a result. There’s no time like the present to book your reservation for this great time of year.

Family on Ski LiftThe ski season officially opens this year on November 23rd. Early snow can push this forward, but late snow usually means the slopes will be machine groomed to start. Either way, our skiers will want to make sure they grab one of our great locations for the season. If you’ve ever skied Snow Summit or Bear Mountain, you’ve surely noticed there are cabins lining the slopes and a community of cabins within walking distance. As you can imagine, these are ideal for skiers, and here are a couple we rent:

9280550014Our Cabin #9 is a short walk to the slopes at Snow Summit. It’s on a quiet cul-de-sac with 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and room for 11 guests. And when you’re not on the slopes, it’s a perfect retreat with a spa and all the comforts to let you relax and recuperate after a full day on the slopes. The master features a Jacuzzi tub, and there’s a spa for you all to share as well. It has a pool table, foosball, and granite counters in the kitchen.

Cabin 13Located right on the slopes at Bear Mountain is our Cabin #13. This features 5 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, and room for 14 guests. That first morning you’ll find the amazing advantage of avoiding the long lines and frenzied parking when you can just strap on your skis and head right out your back door. There’s really nothing quite like it. And this one also caters to your relaxation off the slopes with a pool table, foosball, and spa.

We have plenty more luxury properties to choose from that are a quick walk or drive to the slopes. You can book your stay online or view all of our Big Bear cabins and luxury estates at this link.  Or give us a call at 310-780-3411, and we’ll help you choose a great property for your winter vacation or getaway.  And if you’d like to explore any of our other destinations, you can be assured that we’re committed to providing top quality cabins, estates, and condos for your next vacation getaway.  Here are links to our other properties in Nuevo Vallarta and La Quinta.
