Snow Play, Tubing and Sledding

Snow Tubing in Big Bear

Snowplay Tubing California

One of the top winter activities for kids and families is sliding down snow-covered hills on an inner tube.

Snow tubing is geared for adults and kids of all ages! Bundle up and gather your friends or family for a day of snow-filled fun. Ride the ‘magic carpet’ to the top and race each other down the slope on colorful snow tubes. Insider Tip: Bring an extra change of clothes in the car so no one needs to ride back to the cabin in wet clothes.

Snow tubing at Southern California's premier winter wonderland is the ultimate outdoor family outing that creates memories that will last a lifetime. Many families make snow tubing in Big Bear an annual tradition.


Big Bear Snow Play

Big Bear Snow Play, once a ski hill known as Rebel Ridge, sports the longest runs in the Southern California, serviced by a Magic Carpet uphill lift that eliminates the tiring uphill struggle through snow.

Alpine Slide at Magic Mountain

Enjoy Southern California's only authentic bobsled experience and go tubing!

Grizzly Ridge Tubing Park at Snow Summit

Skip the lift lines and satisfy your need for speed in a high-speed snow tube at Snow Summit's newest attraction.

Big Bear has three snow tubing areas: The Alpine Slide at Magic Mountain, just west of Big Bear Village; Big Bear Snow Play, which is located on the east end of Big Bear Blvd. and Grizzly Ridge in the Basecamp area at Snow Summit Ski Resort. Each snow tubing area has covered Magic Carpet rides with clear tunnels that transport riders with their tubes to the top of the slope. Now with belly up and bum down, just hop on the snow tube and race your friends to the bottom.

Save a little money and experience even more magic when you go snow tubing at night. When the sun goes down, so do the prices. The lights come on, sweeping the slopes with color and an ultra-cool vibe. It is colder at night, so dress for warmth.

When you need to take a break, grab a hot chocolate at the snack bar or pack in a tailgate picnic and feed the whole tribe. All three snow tubing areas have snack bars, picnic tables and restrooms.

Alpine Slide at Magic Mountain, Big Bear Snow Play and Grizzly Ridge all have ski-resort quality snowmaking systems to ensure there is always snow to last through the season for snow tubing thrill seekers. Slope areas are groomed nightly at each snow tubing area.
