If you want to experience alpine good times but don't ski or snowboard there’s still plenty to do at Big Bear Mountain Resort (BBMR) this winter, from family-friendly activities to free events. Here are some non-skiing things to do at Bear Mountain and Snow Summit.


Looking for an outdoor activity this winter that’s fun for the whole family? Check out Snow Summit’s Grizzly Ridge Tube Park and experience the thrill of gliding down the hill in a controlled environment in one of our snow tubes. Skip the hiking and take a magic carpet to the top of the Tube Park, then slide down as fast as you can in one of our high-speed snow tubes. Buy tickets online.

The Tube Park is perfect for snow-goers of all ages, with discounts available for groups of 15 or more.

Bear Mountain's famous sun deck is the perfect place to check out the action in The Scene, or enjoy your favorite beverage. Following the Bear Mountain mantra of “go big or go home”, the deck was recently expanded from 13,000 square feet to over 25,000 square feet, giving guests even more opportunity to enjoy one of the industry’s best après scenes. The new deck spans over 350 feet, making it larger than a football field, with 3 new fire pits, over $250,000 in new furniture, and custom-built bench seating along the entire slope edge.
