Plan Ahead to Save Time on the Slopes
There are 3 ways to and from Big Bear Lake, CA. During the winter months of November - April, motorists may encounter traction chain controls in the mountain areas within California. By law, snow chains or cables must be carried in your vehicle at all times during winter months.

Big Bear Mountain Resort does not sell or install tire chains. Contact your local auto parts store for tire chains availability and make sure you know how to install your traction devices before visiting BBMR to avoid delays when traveling to/from the mountains. For questions or concerns about road conditions, please contact the California Department of Transportation (CalTrans) directly at 1-800-427-7623.
