Plan Your Weekday Getaway to Big Bear

The snow conditions in Big Bear are amazing this year. Both Bear Mountain and Snow Summit are enjoying plentiful snowfall and there’s a great base of machine-groomed to keep the slopes in shape when there’s not fresh snow. As always happens during ski season, we get packed full on the weekends. But as you may know, the snow is also still there during the week, so this is a perfect time to plan you weekday getaway to Big Bear.

Planning your Big Bear ski trip during the week brings a lot of advantages. Here are a few:

Smaller Crowds

This means faster service in restaurants, more room to move around in Village shops, and a generally less rushed and crowded experience.

Lower Rates
