Guide to Big Bear Mountain ResortYear-Round Recreation at Bear Mountain & Snow Summit
Both resorts are a must-see. With tons of park features (more than 200), 12-foot and 18-foot halfpipes, as well as backcountry and canyon terrain, and the largest beginner area in SoCal, Bear Mountain is more youthful, filled with kids and hardcore snowboarders. Snow Summit is more traditional, attracting families and skiers and riders who usually keep their boards and skis on the snow, but still has more than 20 runs and its own terrain park, Westridge.
