Action Snow Shoe Tours announced today it will begin its snowshoe tours a week earlier than scheduled due to the recent snowstorms combined with chilly nights that have kept the snow intact. The first snowshoe tours are scheduled for Saturday, December 20 with starting times at 10 a.m., 12 noon, and 2 p.m.

Action Snowshoe Tours are suitable for both beginners and experienced enthusiasts. The tours offer guests an opportunity to experience Big Bear's scenic winter landscapes, learn about winter ecology and nature.

"This is an opportunity to get into the outdoors and experience a deeper connection with nature," said Belinda Bain, owner of Action Tours Big Bear. "Snowshoeing is a great avenue for fitness too, but best of all it's downright fun!"

A trek into the open country via snowshoes is undoubtedly one of the best ways to enjoy the true bliss of Big Bear Lake's picturesque winter scenery. The rapid growing winter sport is easy to learn, widely accessible, and a casual workout.

An expert tour guide leads tours and teaches the tour group about winter ecology, animal tracking, and flora and fauna identification. A passenger van transports guests to the designated trail where guests will experience nature first hand.

"The trails we've selected for the tours are pristine and absolutely breathtaking!" added Bain.

Tours start December 20, 2014 and end the last week of March (depending on snowfall). Tours are scheduled daily from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m.; 12 noon - 3 p.m. and 2 p.m. - 5 p.m. Tours depart from Action Tours Big Bear office located at 41693 Big Bear Blvd., Ste #A in Big Bear Lake. Participants must be at least 10 years old. Cost is $95, which includes state-of-the-art snowshoes and trekking poles. Guests are treated to hot cocoa after each tour. Space is limited to nine participants, per tour. To reserve a spot log onto or call 909-866-0390.  *Note: tours are dependent on snow conditions. Call 909-866-0390 to confirm current snow reports.
