Slow service at the rental - lessons booking area. Instructors were very good and had the kids and my wife up on the 2nd level lifts after a 2 hour lesson. The restaurant is very basic, crowded on the weekend and food was - hot...More

We had great fun, spending a couple of days ski-ing on the mountain with USARC and a party of people of varying abilities from the UK. I personally mono-ski-ed, in a sitski. Great fun. The beginner run (easy street and learning curve) are good for...More

This is a gorgeous gorgeous drive from Palm Springs. We stopped several times to take photos. The ski area is smallish, and full of fun-loving skiers and snowboarders. The BBQ was cooking burgers and brats. Highly recommend this for a change of pace from the...More

The local signposting/directions to get there are appalling- I think they assume everyone knows where it is. The resort is pretty basic with all restaurants/bars etc just at the bottom main station, so that's just crowded all the time. The runs are all fairly similar,...More

There were 7 of us; 4 adults & 3 children (ages 3-7) that spent a 3-day weekend in Big Bear. We rented a condo near Bear Mountain and purchased lift tickets & lesson packages online prior to our arrival. The weather couldn't have been better...More

The resort itself is pretty limited, given its location you can't expect a huge amount of possibilities so it's good that there is anything at all. But on a decent weekend day it seems like half of Los Angeles descends on it and the crowds...More

I really enjoyed the terrain park, specially if you are an intermediate ski/snowboarder. The progression and design of the park lets you build the confidence to hit every feature. The snow was crappy and it was pretty busy but you can get lots of runs...More

This was our second time visiting. We are very new to skiing. Me, my 9yo and 12yo sons took a private lesson together. I only paid for an hour and maybe I should have paid for a little longer, but there was only 1, 3,...More
