As long as you spend the New Year’s with people you care about, it will likely be a wonderful occasion. If you spend New Year’s with people you care about in Big Bear, California, it is sure to be an experience that you will never forget. This is the result of great parties and festivities in one of the most beautiful places on earth. Here are some of the things that you will love about spending some time in Big Bear after the new year has come!
The Big Bear Discovery Center puts on this annual event to help those new to snow sports discover a new passion. This year’s event will be held on January 13th from 10AM – 2PM and will offer attendees the chance to try a plethora of snow sports completely free! Enjoy snowshoe demos, a snowman building contest, hot cocoa, and much more with the friendly folks of Big Bear.
If Winter Trails Day piqued your interest in snowshoeing, this event will certainly be memorable! Head out on a guided snowshoe tour of San Bernardino National Forest with one of Big Bear Discovery Center’s naturalists and enjoy beautiful sights of Big Bear’s natural surroundings. You can enjoy one of these guided tours on Saturdays from 9AM – 12PM or 1PM to 4PM, or Sundays from 9AM – 12PM, all through the winter season.
Parties and special celebrations aside, this is a great time to be in Big Bear because of the beauty and opportunities that are available during the winter. It all starts with a beautiful landscape that becomes even more beautiful when covered in a blanket of snow. Then of course, you have some of the best opportunities for skiing and snowboarding in the world. Bear Mountain and Snow Summit act as a lightning rod for skiers and snowboarders from all over the country because they are some of the most fun ski resorts you will ever find. You can also explore on snowshoes, take helicopter tours, go ziplining, and so much more.
Big Bear isn’t just about the snow, so those who are more interested in a relaxing mountain vacation without all the hiking or skiing can still find plenty to do, but we have to admit that we always look forward to winter. Start the new year off with a bang and come see why we love Big Bear in this season!
