Home to Bear Mountain and the Snow Summit, Big Bear vacation rentals offers guests the opportunity to experience two winter resorts that are quite unique from one another. Each one has its own set of personality traits that cater to the diverse tastes and skills of all who visit.
Skiers and snowboarders of all skill levels are accommodated from the 200-acre Bear Mountain winter playground, which is the largest beginner area in the region, to the Snow Summit and its Olympic runs for advanced skiers. Both resorts, however, offer terrain for all levels, as well as lessons in which teachers use the best techniques available and provide equipment for those students that do not have their own.
To further accommodate the different skill levels of the guests, each park within both resorts has a specific difficulty level assigned to it. For instance, Bear Mountain is home to the People’s Park, which contains 120 beginner to advanced jibs that include a wide variety of walls, boxes, and rails. The People’s Park is also home to the only Superpipe in California.
Located nearby in Snow Summit is the world famous Westridge Park. This is where the resort’s slow skiing and riding zone that expands across five runs is located. There are also designated fun zones offering small bumps, jumps, and rollers that skiers of all ages and skill levels can enjoy.
And even the guests that prefer not to ski or snowboard find plenty to do, such as enjoying the many events that the Big Bear Mountain Resorts host each year. The most popular of these events are the races. Races are also the most common events taking place at the resorts.

With over 55 runs, 26 lifts, and 430 developed acres, there is a lot to be experienced.
