Big Bear Snow Play & Snow Tubing

Big Bear's snow tubing hills are open for 2023 - 2024 winter season!

We're happy to invite snow goers to enjoy an early start to the snow tubing season in Big Bear! Start planning your early winter getaway in Big Bear.

Snow Tubing Parks

Not a skier or snowboarder? Enjoy the snowy slopes on an inner tube instead! The Alpine Slide at Magic Mountain, Big Bear Snow Play and Grizzly Ridge Tube Park operate year-round with seasonal snow tubing offered each winter. Tubing parks allow guests to enjoy snow sliding in a safe and controlled environment away from cars and traffic.

Glow Tubing

Experience the magic of snow tubing at night at both Alpine Slide and Big Bear Snow Play! When the sun goes down, the neon lights come on sweeping the slopes with color and an ultra-cool vibe. It's much colder at night so dress in layers for warmth. Glow Tubing offered on Fridays, Saturdays, and Holidays.

Snow Play Safety

Snow play outside of tubing hills is permitted on public property including the National Forest, city parks, and picnic areas. If you choose to enjoy snow in these areas, remember:

  • Sledding near and into streets is extremely dangerous as cars use roadways year-round.
  • Sledding or playing on lake ice is both illegal and life threatening.
  • Trespassing on private property is illegal at all times.
  • Do not leave broken sleds or trash behind in parks, picnic areas, or other National Forest areas.
  • Do not use road turnouts for snow play. Other drivers need them to put chains on, let other drivers pass, and pull over for emergencies.
