Big Bear

1845

5IF7BMMFZJT%JTDPWFSFE Benjamin Wilson led a posse to search for Indians who had been raiding ranches in Riverside. Their search led them into the mountains. Once they reached the top of the mountain range they found the valley was swarming with grizzly bear, which is how Big Bear Valley earned its name.



&BSMZ(PME Gold is found in Big Bear Valley in 1855. By 1859 the first recorded mining is underway at Starvation Flats, near what is now the intersection of Division and Big Bear Blvd.

HISTORY 

/FX3PBETBOE-PEHJOH *ODSFBTF5SBWFMUPUIF7BMMFZ The Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first resort lodging, the Bear Valley Hotel is opened. In 1908 the first circular trip through the mountains in an automobile was made and was completed in an amazing, 13 hours and 17 minutes. In 1911 construction is completed on a new dam replacing the old rock dam and tripling the amount of water stored in the lake.

1906

(SJ[[MZ#FBST%JTBQQFBS Due to unregulated hunting, the grizzly bearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s native population was killed off.



HISTORIC PHOTOS COURTESY RICK KEPPLER / BIGBEARHISTORYSITE.COM

5IF(PME3VTIBOE $BUUMF#PPN In 1860, a bear hunter named William Holcomb discovered gold in the back country after tracking the bearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blood trail to a creek filled with flakes of gold. Soon enough Southern Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest gold rush was on. Cattle ranching began in 1879 where the present rodeo grounds are located at Shay Meadow. Cattle would expand to a big business in the Valley.

1883

#JH#FBS#VJMETB%BN BOE$SFBUFTB-BLF Frank Brown begins construction on a dam across the Valley to capture water in a reservoir to supply citrus farms in Redlands. The dam was 300 feet long, 60 feet high and held 25,000 acre feet of water. Water began flowing in 1885.



5PVSJTN&TDBMBUFTBTUIF 'JMN*OEVTUSZ%JTDPWFST #JH#FBS The fledging film industry discovered Big Bear to be an inexpensive place to make films and the popularity of Big Bear as a tourist destination boomed. An auto line started bringing hundreds of tourists to Big Bear. By 1914 the Crest Highway is completed which provided a relatively easy circular trip through the mountains. Tourism began in earnest with the onset of the automobile and the establishment of highways. In 1920 the community now boasted 600 cabins. By 1921 there was a building boom with 80 new homes, and 24 resorts and camps around the lake. In 1924 a concrete bridge was built across the dam to connect the new south shore road to the Village and the Rim of the World Highway. By 1925 better roads and transportation increased the number of resorts to over 200.



8JOUFS'BDJMJUJFTBSF#VJMU BOE-BVODIFTB/FX&SB In 1928 a competition ski jump was built in the hills just west of the Village near Paine Road where the Elkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lodge is today. In 1938, to increase winter tourism, a newly formed Park District built a toboggan run with a sling lift on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lynn Hillâ&#x20AC;? behind the Village. The new winter facilities were a big success, causing more lodges and businesses to stay open year-round. The 30s and 40s saw an explosion of skiing and in 1949 the first ski resort opened.



4OPXNBLJOH,FFQT4LJ 3FTPSUT0QFO"MM8JOUFS Snowmaking proved a viable solution for the area when Rebel Ridge Ski Area began experimenting with it. Snow Summit was the first to install it extensively in 1961. Big Bear Lakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s water supply allowed for the ski resorts to operate all winter in the case of a lack of natural snow.



#JH#FBS.PVOUBJO3FTPSUT $SFBUFTB4OPXCPBSEFSTĹ? BOE4LJFSTĹ?1BSBEJTF Snow Summit bought Bear Mountain, and became Big Bear Mountain Resorts which created a dual mountain paradise for snowboarders and skiers to enjoy.
