As we prepare for another winter of alpine good times, Big Bear Mountain Resort will be launching several new products and services in 22/23 designed to enhance our guests’ experience and help them get on the slopes faster. See below to learn more about what’s new for the upcoming season.
Bear Mountain remodel mock up
Laybacks Bar
Anyone who has been to Bear Mountain in the winter knows that Laybacks is the place to be when the flakes are flying or the sun is shining. In keeping with its 'après all day' vibe, Bear Mountain's most well-known watering hole received a $2 million revamp over the summer, featuring radiant flooring, outdoor heaters, and an indoor-to-outdoor bar that will allow our amazing servers to accommodate guests on the sun deck and inside the main lodge. Don't worry, we're also increasing the size of our storage coolers to keep the alpine good times flowing all season.

Slopeside Refresh
Snow Summit's Slopeside building, located on the west side of the base area below Chair 2, underwent a full facelift, with rebuilt framing, new Trex decking, and a remodel of The Patty Shack (formerly Driftwood BBQ).

Base Area Deck
Be sure to check out the new deck in the Snow Summit meadow area below Chair 1 during your next visit. Completed in summer 2022, the new area is the perfect place to play a game of cornhole, and enjoy a bite from Bighorn Smokehouse, or grab an ice cold Coca-Cola after your last lap of the day.
