Ideas for March – What to do at Big Bear Lake

If a lion sees his shadow on March 2, that means six more weeks of skiing, right?

Will March in Big Bear Lake arrive like a lion or like a lamb? With all of the great snowboarding and skiing events that kick the month off, we are pulling for lion. Bear Mountain and Snow Summit like to receive as much snow as possible through early March. Then, we’ll be happy for all of the white snow to give away to the green of St. Patrick’s Day and Spring as skiing and snowboarding season gives way to hiking, fishing, and farmer’s markets. Until then, we are looking for the weather to roar through with winter temperatures and blasts of snow.

What to expect at Big Bear in March 2013?

March 2013 starts off not with a roar, but with a war. Bear Mountain hosts War of Rails, featuring some of the best athletes in snowboarding competing over a custom course for huge prizes from March 1 to March 3. USASA BoarderCross takes place March 3 as well, challenging groups of boarders to show off what they can do on the slopes. The great snowboarding continues on March 9 with the second last stop in the TransWorld TransAm Tour at Snow Mountain. This one is important because registration begins Friday, February 22. March 10 will be the last Halfpipe that USASA offers for the season as well as the fourth race in Goldsmith’s Board House Race Series, with the fifth in the series being on March 24. The last big rail jam event is also at the end of this month with the Neff Beach Bash on March 30. Plenty of intense action through the month of March out on the slopes!

Events off the Mountain

The mountain is not the only place where people can go for entertainment in March. In the Big Bear Airport District, there will be a little Moonshine and Mayhem this March 2. There will be food and drink, dancing, raffles, and great time for all involved. A week later, on March 9, you can come up and help the U.S. Forest Service with their bald eagle count at the Big Bear Discovery Center. If staying warm that day is not important to you, plan to take part in the Polar Plunge to benefit Special Olympics Inland Empire. There are two big events on St. Patrick’s Day weekend; The Big Bear Convention Center Casino Night on March 16 and the world famous KROQ Storm the Mountain the next day. You can leave with a pot of gold from Casino Night, but you have to earn it!

In addition to all of these great events, Bear Mountain and Snow Summit are once again offering discounted tickets on March 6 and 7 for Uniform Days.  As we’ve witnessed here in Big Bear lately, first responders do a wonderful job keeping all of us protected, putting themselves in harms way. This is one very small way to thank them for all they do for us and the sacrifices they make every day.

If you’re planning a visit to Big Bear Lake in March 2013, make your reservations sooner than later, because with all of the great events going on during the month our cabins will fill up fast! Our guests look forward to enjoying that last roar of the lion during the month of March. When April rolls around our eyes will be turned to fishing tournaments and dusting off our bicycles.
