MOUNTAIN WINTER DRIVING TIPS
Thank you for choosing Big Bear Lake for your winter getaway!
Whether you’re coming up to play in the
snow or just getting away to relax; we’ve
put together some helpful tips to ensure your time in
Big Bear is an enjoyable experience.
Before heading up to the snow be sure to pack warm clothes
including thermals, gloves and beanie. Water resistant
pants and jacket are great to have on hand too, especially
if you plan to do some snow tubing at Alpine Slide
at Magic Mountain. Other essentials are
sunglasses, lip balm and sunblock.
Although it doesn’t snow every day in Big Bear during
the winter, it is highly recommended to have tire chains
with you when you travel to the mountains....
SNOW MANY MEMORIES START WITH TUBING
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
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.
