Big Bear Lake is Southern California's #1 four-season resort destination. That means you get a different Big Bear experience in every season. The jewel of the San Bernardino Mountains charms visitors with a variety of recreation and adventures, some seasonal, and some year-round.

The fall season brings the most vibrant foliage you'll find in Southern California. Walk The Village to marvel at crimson red and radiant yellow leaves on the maples and oaks lining the streets. Sit for a hot coffee (or a hot toddy!) and enjoy the crisp autumn air.

The pine forests offer miles of hiking & biking trails through changing landscapes. Trail users will marvel at the views and wildlife. Serious adventurers will love taking to four wheels on the many off-road trails.

Big Bear's unparalleled winter slopes and terrain parks at Snow Summit and Bear Mountain are a haven for skiers and snowboarders. But, there's more to Big Bear than its top-quality ski resorts, strap on a pair of snowshoes and venture into the forest!

As the winter snow melts away, spring brings new growth, gorgeous wildflowers, and a whole new set of adventures to Big Bear - like prime trout fishing and epic outdoor events.

Summer season recreation ranges from on the water fun - fishing, boating, paddle sports, jet skiing, and wakeboarding - to shoreline relaxation. Twenty-two miles of shoreline invite you to lay out in the sun, or enjoy a lakeside picnic with sweeping views.

Welcome to Big Bear, it's time to explore your mountain lake escape!
