OC Weekend: Fourth of July Fun

Big Bear Mountain Resorts

If you're looking to escape from OC this weekend, look no further than up the mountain we love for its snow.

For the holiday weekend, Big Bear Mountain Resorts has all the activities necessary for the outdoors - hiking, biking, golfing, BBQ and rides in the Scenic Sky Chair.

Now open at Snow Summit, the Scenic Sky Chair can transport you from the base of the mountain in 15 minutes to enjoy the day outside in the SoCal sun.

After a day of gorgeous scenery - or a day of relaxing on the mountaintop - a fireworks spectacular rounds out the evening. The show can be enjoyed from a boat on the lake and throughout Big Bear Valley.

To reserve a spot on the golf course, call 909.585.8002.

Highway 330 is now officially open.

880 Summit Blvd in Big Bear Lake.
