Big Bear Lake is Southern California's premier four-season playground; less than two hours from Los Angeles, its high elevation brings winter snows to a region that often misses out on festive flurries. If wearing long sleeves doesn't meet your definition of "bundling up," Escape to the mountains with Big Bear Vacations to experience the season as it's meant to be.

You'll choose from more than 300 cabins and homes around the area. Some of these fully equipped dens come with pool tables, game rooms, and spacious decks, while others make for cozy hideaways with wood-burning fireplaces and outdoor hot tubs.

Awaken each day in your spacious abode, and sip a cup of coffee while you make breakfast in the kitchen. Then you'll be ready to hit the slopes at Big Bear Mountain Resorts, comprised of two distinct winter resorts, each with its own personality. Lift tickets provides access to both Snow Summit and Bear Mountain, which are located just two miles apart and connected via a free inter-resort express shuttle service.

The resorts cover diverse terrain, providing skiers and snowboarders with a combined 438 developed acres, 26 lifts (including four high-speed detachable quads) and more than 55 runs. Snow Summit serves up a traditional alpine atmosphere with lots of intermediate terrain and mainstream cruising for skiers and snowboarders, while Bear Mountain offers a youthful spirit that attracts riders from around the world.

Big Bear Snow Play is a long tubing hill for winter fun that everyone can get the hang of. Just grab a tube and zip down one of many lanes worn into the snow. Once you reach the bottom, don't worry about trudging all the way back up the hill. Instead, hitch a ride on the "magic carpet"—enclosed in plexiglas to shield riders from the chilly wind—as it pulls its way to the top.

You don't have to miss out on the season for snow. Make the most of this winter with an Escape to Big Bear Lake.

  • "Southern California's largest winter playground, one of the few that challenge skilled skiers. The vibe is youthful at Bear, which has beginner slopes and the after-ski hangout The Scene. Snow Summit holds challenging runs and is open for night skiing."
