Children who visit Big Bear Lake can experience the thrill of inner tubing down snow packed slopes, which are specifically designed for good times. Parents too, can relive their youthful days and glide down the smooth vertical incline for a fun-filled ride. Inner tubing in Big Bear’s winter wonderland is the ultimate outdoor family outing. Playing in the snow is one of the greatest ways to bond families together and creates memories that last a lifetime. Many families have made sliding down the slopes of Big Bear Lake an annual tradition.


It’s common at the Alpine Slide snow play area to see the same families year after year. The reason is they know they can always count on Alpine Slide at Magic Mountain to deliver quality snow conditions in Big Bear. They also return because its Magic Carpet lift makes it so convenient to get up the hill for hours upon hours of fun in the snow. The Magic Carpet lift does all the work that allows families to save their energy. Since they don’t have to walk up the hill the results are more snow playtime together! For added comfort, the Magic Carpet ride comes equipped with a Plexiglass cover for those snowy, chilly days. Even riding up the Magic Carpet lift is a memory maker in itself.


Families that seek to capture memories in the snow are in good hands because Alpine Slide at Magic Mountain guarantees snow-covered hills for tubing all winter long and into spring break. Alpine Slide at Magic Mountain has ski-resort quality snowmaking systems to ensure there is always snow for inner-tube thrill seekers. Both Mother Nature and Alpine Slide at Magic Mountain will blanket the tubing runs with more snow throughout the winter, and should eventually boast more than 15 to 20 feet of snow. In fact, this favorite snow play area in Big Bear will combine its snowmaking capability with whatever Mother Nature delivers, which will keep inner tubing going through April. 


This is the one place in Big Bear where everyone is a kid. Here you’ll see grandma and grandpa getting into the action with their grandkids. The park has a “kiddie area” for the youngest riders, too. Even the smallest of tots (at least 36 inches) can get on an inner tube with an adult 18 years or older.


Here’s a key tidbit for those who wish to take a break from the snow play and enjoy a winter warm-up. Alpine Slide at Magic Mountain has a heated base lodge with family-priced snack bar items and video games. The hot cocoa is a must on a chilly winter day.


After a full day on the snow tubing hills, relax together and enjoy a lakeside sunset, or get cozy at the cabin and play a board game near the fireplace. Bundle up and go outside at night to view the star-filled skies on the deck. Opportunities for a family time together in Big Bear are boundless. Best of all it creates memories that will last a lifetime.
