Snow Summit's annual torchlight parade is Big Bear's signature New Year's Eve event, a holiday attraction not seen anywhere else in Southern California! The mountain resort is only a two hour drive from most Southern California communities and is a great escape from the norm. Monday, December 31 at 7 p.m. 250 skiers and snowboarders, some dressed in eccentric holiday costumes, will descend down snow capped mountains with lit torches to create a spectacular display of illumination. 

The free event can be seen from a range of vantage points throughout Big Bear. Besides the torchlight parade, Big Bear has a variety of recreational activities happening after the sun goes down including night-session skiing at Snow Summit and inner tubing under-the-lights at Alpine Slide at Magic Mountain. Festive celebrations happening throughout the valley include distinctive holiday menus, special musical guests, and reasonable admission charges. Wyatt's at the Big Bear Lake Convention Center and Nottinghams Restaurant all plan to bring down the house this New Year's Eve with a bang!

Snow Summit is open for night skiing from 3 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., with a brief interruption of course for the torchlight parade. Celebrations at both ski resorts begin, after the impressive parade ends. Snow Summit is known for its fun filled evening of dancing and good times that goes well into the night with a DJ spinning high-energy music. The celebration begins at 8 p.m. and goes to 1 p.m. The cover charge is $35 and includes party favors and light appetizers.

Bear Mountain offers a more edgy festivity with DJ's spinning modern rock and hip hop music. Bear Mountain's New Years Eve celebration starts at 9 p.m. and end at 1 a.m. The cover charge is $35 and includes heavy appetizers.  

Guests must be 21 years or older and reservations are recommended for all Big Bear New Year's Eve celebrations. Can't find lodging for New Years Eve and to learn more about New Year's Eve in Big Bear call 800-424-4232.
