THE SNOW IS COMING - THE SNOW IS COMING!
A Cure for Winter Olympics Fever

The XXIII Winter Olympics are now in full swing. Big Bear Lake has the cure for southern Californians who become infected by the outbreak of Winter Olympics Fever.

Alpine Slide at Magic Mountain offers families an opportunity to enjoy the spirit of the Winter Olympics with fun toboggan runs and snow-packed tubing hills. Even though snow tubing is not an Olympic sport; it does have the spirit of bobsledding. Also, night tubing is available on Friday, Saturday and holiday nights. Alpine Slide at Magic Mountain has two toboggan runs that resemble the luge event. Riders of all ages navigate their own individually controlled sleds down a quarter-mile long track with high-banked turns and long straight-aways. Other options include an 18-hole miniature golf course, go-karts and video games. For details visit AlpineSlideBigBear.com.

4 SEASON RESORT - BIG BEAR SETS THE STAGE
The natural alpine scenery that surrounds cool Big Bear Lake, from lakeside to the
mountaintops, creates stunning backdrops for events, which explains why so many
events are held each year at the mountain resort. Summer is the perfect fit for
festivities, with a deep blue lake at center stage, thousands of shady trees swaying
to the sounds of nature, and cool mountain breezes providing a natural air conditioning
system for those looking to escape the heat.


BIG BEAR LAKE OKTOBERFEST

In the fall the most notable event is the annual Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest,
the highest-altitude Oktoberfest celebration in the United States. For 46 years, this event
has attracted thousands of visitors to enjoy German food, imported brews, Bavarian bands,
traditional dances and competitions, such as the Queen Stein Carrying Contest.


FILM FESTIVALS

Another fall staple is The Big Bear Lake International Film Festival. It's where cinema meets
the fresh alpine air. It showcases the emerging talents of screenwriters and independent
filmmakers on the silver screen, all brimming with creativity. For three days audience members
choose from documentaries, shorts and feature-length films, some moving, some daring, some
thought-provoking, and others downright hilarious. The film festival is also a forum for those
interested in all aspects of the film industry. 


TROUT FISHING TOURNAMENTS

Of course the lake is teeming with rainbow trout, which means it's only natural to have fishing
tournaments such as the May Trout Classic, Fishing for $50K and the 
October TroutfesT. There's
even a way to win some big bucks! And all it takes is some fishing gear, bait, patience and a little
luck. Anglers have the opportunity to catch a tagged trout worth $50,000 at 
Big Bear Lake's
Fishin' for $50K Trout Derby in June.

TAKE IT OUTSIDE

It only makes sense to kick off the summer months with a cool celebration to honor the great
outdoors. National Trails Day and National Get Outdoors Day (hosted by the 
Big Bear Discovery Center)
does just that, providing both traditional and innovative new ways to experience mother nature up
close and personal. Open Air Big Bear takes it to the next level by promoting a healthy lifestyle with
events to inspire people to get outside and stay active with a series of outdoor events with "altitude,"
such as
Team Big Bear's Mountain Bike Shootouts, Gran Fondo, Big Bear Lake Paddlefest,
Grizzly Stage Race and Endure the Bear Trail Run.
 In fact, the Open Air Big Bear series challenges
individuals to the best of their abilities to finish each race to become part of "Conquer the Bear."
It's a challenge that will change your life! Those looking for a more casual pace can choose from c
ommunity group bike rides sponsored by the Big Bear Cycling Association or nature walks, canoe
tours, and kayak tours offered by the 
Discovery Center every weekend from May to October.

SUMMERTIME ROLLS

Mothers are honored at a hotrod show dedicated to motherhood at the Moms and Rods Antique
Car Show. Artists display fine works of art on the water's edge at the annual Art on the Lake. Wine
aficionados and casual sippers alike venture into Big Bear Village to sample various wines and
hors d'oeuvres at the Summer Wine Walk in the Village. The Big Bear Alpine Zoo gets into the act
with a variety of events from its Old Time Bear Country Fair to the fun-filled Ice Cream Safari.


4TH OF JULY FIREWORKS SPECTACULAR

Each Fourth of July in Big Bear, thousands gather around the lake's 23 miles of shoreline to witness
one of California's top-rated fireworks displays. This fireworks spectacular shoots off top-of-the-line
fireworks that cascade over the lake creating a brilliant display of colors. It's a lengthy show of over
30 minutes in duration, and can be viewed from a boat, around the lake and throughout cool Big Bear
Valley. Don't miss the Rotary Club BBQ that offers an amazing lakefront view (sells out early, we
recommend to pre-purchase tickets online) .


MUSIC FILLS THE AIR - SUMMER CONCERTS

All summer long the air is filled with music from rock 'n' roll concerts in the park to tribute bands at
the Big Bear Discovery Center's woodsy amphitheater or at 
The Cave in the Village. Save the date
to enjoy live music in a beautiful, outdoor forest setting at one of Big Bear Discovery Center's Music
in the Mountains Summer Concert series. Music in the Mountains features a diverse mix of genres
including rock, bluegrass, blues, western and even Celtic. The Cave in the Village is Big Bear's
newest concert venue offering weekly live entertainment from original bands, tribute bands or comedians.


SPICE IT UP, CHILI TASTING COOK-OFF

If you're looking for a little zest to spice up your vacation then mark your calendar for the
 
annual chili cook-off every July. This event draws more than 40 cooks from all over the
southwest cooking up tasty concoctions, some mild and some with a zip. Visitors are invited
to taste test, enjoy live music and entertainment, food and drinks in the Bartlett Parking Lot
in the cool Big Bear Village.


VINTAGE BIG BEAR

In August, more than 500 vintage autos, dragsters, and custom coupes climb the mountain
to congregate in the Big Bear Village for the popular annual two-day Antique Car Club Fun Run.

26th Annual Antique Car Club Fun Run in the Village -  Aug 08, 2015 | 09:00AM - 04:00PM



SNOWBOARD AND SKI CONTESTS AND WINTER HOLIDAY EVENTS

Snow covered mountains in winter means ski and snowboard competitions at both
Snow Summit and Bear Mountain
. Christmas in the Village kicks off the holiday season
with strolling musicians, Victorian-style carolers, Christmas tree lighting ceremony and
of course, Santa Claus. Hundreds of skiers and snowboarders descend down the
mountain at Snow Summit's annual New Year's Eve torchlight parade.



Snow Valley Mountain Resort is building Southern California's 1st and ONLY
