Living in Southern California, Big Bear has been somewhere we have gone a few times a year since before I can remember. I recently went with three of my very best friends and their significant others. This was one of the best and easiest couples trip we have taken. The cabin we stayed at was amazing! It was so cozy and the location was perfect; the cabin was so spacious and SO CLEAN! Since I was pregnant I didn't get to go skiing this time but I walked over to the mountain, and met everyone for lunch at the lodge.
The Summit Blvd Cabin
The LOCATION is amazing! It is on Summit Blvd., which is walking distance from Snow Summit (2 min walk.) The cabin is so clean and the decor is very cozy. Can sleep up to 10. You even have access to a game room with a pool table.
Winter: For general skiing or snowboarding we like Snow Summit. I suggest Bear Mountain for snowboarders that like to do tricks. Tubing at SnowPlay
Summer: mountain biking at Snow Summit, hiking at Pine Knot Trail, or renting a boat/jet skis on Big BearLake
Grizzly Manor Cafe- comfort breakfast
Firerock- good burgers and beer
