Happy Snow Season at Big Bear Lake! It’s one of the most wonderful times of the year to enjoy Big Bear and the ski and snowboarding slopes that are open and in full swing. During snowfall season, we have the information you need to handle the Big Bear snow season this year.
Allot More Time to Travel Roads
This is the busiest time of year for snow-loving visitors to come to Big Bear Lake. Plan accordingly by leaving early because the steep and winding roads can be difficult to maneuver in the sleet and snow. A car trip that usually takes two hours in the spring can easily take three to four hours in the winter. Check our road and new alerts before you travel to keep apprised of any issues you can prepare for ahead of time.
Winter Weather Requires Chains
Whenever there is snow on the ground, the chain law requirement is in full effect at Big Bear Lake. Chains are required on all vehicles in the snow unless your vehicle comes equipped with snow tread tries and/or is four-wheel drive capable. For the most current up-to-date road conditions, call (800) 424-4232 or (800) 427-7623. Road conditions can also be monitored online.
