Big Bear News and Events

Big Bear Info.com:
Welcome to Big Bear Lake, a four seasons resort community surrounded by the San Bernardino National Forest, 100 miles northeast of Los Angeles.

Activities
There's an island in the sky just 99 miles east of Los Angeles that's Mother Nature's four seasons resort. This simply means you get a new Big Bear recreation experience each time you visit. Come see the vibrant hues of colorful leaves in autumn, angelic white snow flutter in winter, wildflowers blooming in spring and lake activities that shine in summer. You can count on us to deliver mountainous Big Bear recreation adventures for all ages, and stages, all year long.

Hop into spring and embrace the sights and sounds of the pine-scented forest rustling from under its snowy winter wrap. We promise outdoor fun doesn't melt with the snow. Now the hills are alive with sounds of birds chirping and a kaleidoscope of wildflowers blooming alongside the trails. Tune-in to nature's melodic sounds of quacking ducks and water lapping the shore.

The combination of a cool alpine lake, surrounding lush forests and approximately 320 days of sunshine per year is a magnetic force that lures you to Big Bear spring, summer and fall for a lake trip or weekend getaway. Once Old Man Winter packs it in, the sun warms up the mountains, days become longer and outdoor recreation blossoms!

As summer fades into fall, the air turns crisp as golden hues cast a warm glow over Big Bear. Amidst the vibrant evergreen trees are oaks, cottonwoods and aspens splashed with brilliant amber, yellow and pumpkin-colored leaves. Bring your camera to capture autumn's blazing beauty on hikes or bike rides through the forest.

Step into our enchanted winter wonderland and awaken your childlike wonder from its own hibernation. Visitors and locals alike are transformed when the snow begins to fall. The Village resplendent in its winter white; the forest blanketed in fresh powder; the azure lake rimmed in snow – it's magical here in Big Bear Lake.
