SUMMER LAKE ACTIVITIES Big Bear Lake is your hub for summertime watersports and activities, from a leisurely boat trip to an audacious wakeboarding lesson. Big Bear Lake marinas and rental shops have everything you need for a successful day on the lake. • Fishing is permitted anywhere from shore or boat. Visit Big Bear Sporting Goods to learn about where to fish on the lake and gear up.

Check out The Cave’s concert schedule for national acts and the best tribute bands or Wyatt’s Saloon at the Big Bear Convention Center to find the largest dance floor in Big Bear and free line-dancing lessons.

GETTING HERE – DRIVING SAFETY It’s important to keep the following driving safety tips in mind when traveling in any season to Big Bear. • In snowy conditions, always carry tire chains. Be sure you’re using the proper size as they should be snug around the wheel. • Be sure you know how to install your chains before you have to use them. Chains always go on the drive wheels. • Try to stick to chains that cross the tire tread in an ‘X’ or ‘Z’ pattern rather than a linear pattern. This tends to improve traction. • Landslides have been known to happen during rainstorms. Try to avoid traveling at these times. • Always fill your gas tank before traveling up or down the mountain. • Always use good road etiquette; this includes signaling, passing safely, and using turnouts when necessary to allow other vehicles to pass. • Take it easy! Your goal is to arrive for a great Big Bear getaway!

Serene surroundings lure many visitors to watch the leaves transform to gold, amber and copper. Kick back on your cabin’s deck, venture out on horseback or take a hike amongst the autumn hues.

WAT E R F R O N T AC T I V I T I E S M A P Some of the finest freshwater fishing in California can be found in Big Bear Lake. There is an abundance of trout, bass, catfish, and blue gill to be caught. Big Bear Lake is also well known as a good trolling lake. You will need a fishing license, which can be purchased at sporting goods stores and marinas. You can rent a variety of boats, from pontoon, fishing, sail and speed boats to canoes, kayaks, stand-up paddleboards and paddle boats, or take a lake tour and enjoy a day in the sun at any one of the many marinas that surround Big Bear Lake’s 22 miles of shoreline. Permits are required for private boats and can be purchased at any marina.

C

There are multiple fishing charter services on the lake that offer expert knowledge, advice and techniques on how to catch trout and bass, and of course inside tips on where the fish are biting. Water-skiing, windsurfing, wakeboarding, parasailing and jet skiing can all be enjoyed on Big Bear Lake. Arrangements can be made at many of the marinas. Public boat launch ramp. The U.S. Forest Service offers tent camping in its National Forest campgrounds. RV camping is also available in the valley. Call 800-424-4232 for more information on RV parks. A number of picnic areas surround the lake. Bring your favorite sandwich and enjoy the day! S.S. Relief: Floating restrooms.

The Natives Yuhaviat People of the Pines The first known inhabitants of Big Bear are the Yuhaviat, a Serrano Indian word that means “People of the Pines.” These Native Americans have dwelled here for thousands of years.

1855-1859 Early Gold 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 boulevards.

1906

Big Bear Builds a Dam and Creates a Lake

Grizzly Bears Disappear

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.

Due to unregulated hunting, the grizzly bear’s native population was killed off.

1845 Explorers Arrive Benjamin Wilson led a posse to search for outlaws 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 bears, which is how Big Bear Valley earned its name.

1888-1911 New Roads and Lodging Increase Travel to the Valley

1860-1879

The Valley’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.

The Gold Rush In 1860, a bear hunter named William Holcomb discovered gold in the backcountry after tracking the bear’s blood trail to a creek filled with flakes of gold. Soon enough, Southern California’s largest gold rush was on. 800.424.4232

2017-2018 1911-1925 Tourism Escalates as the Film Industry Discovers Big Bear The fledging film industry discovered Big Bear as an inexpensive place to make films. By 1914, the Crest Highway was completed. By 1925, better roads and transportation helped increase a surge in cabins, resorts and campsites. The booming automobile industry and established highways paved the way for Hollywood’s natural back lot. See details to the right.

Alterra Mountain Company In April 2017, Colorado-based Aspen Skiing Co. and KSL Capital Partners purchase Mammoth Resorts, and in 2018 a joint venture of affiliates of KSL Capital Partners and Henry Crown and Company creates Alterra Mountain Company, which is comprised of 12 destinations that include Big Bear Mountain Resorts. The annual IKON pass gives access to all 12 destinations (23 total ski areas).

1958-1961 Snowmaking Keeps Ski Resorts Open All Winter 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 Lake’s water supply allowed for the ski resorts to operate all winter in the case of a lack of natural snow.

Hollywood’s Natural Back Lot Big Bear Lake has a history with the movie industry that dates back almost as far as the inception of filmmaking itself – and was once a popular escape for movie stars and other Hollywood elite. Today, this area continues to thrive as a top-notch filming location that attracts TV and film crews from all over the world to shoot against our scenic backdrop.

1928-1949 Winter Facilities are Built and Launch a New Era In 1928, a competition ski jump was built just west of the Village. In 1938, a toboggan run with a sling lift was developed 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 the first ski resort opened in 1949.

S P E C I A L O CC A S I O N S Creating Memorable Weddings One of the most important decisions when planning a wedding is the location. Big Bear Lake provides the perfect backdrop for your memorable dream wedding in the mountains. Choosing this alpine paradise for a wedding celebration reflects a husband and wife’s desire to share a quality lifestyle together. Big Bear provides a beautiful blue lake, tranquil forest settings, mild temperatures, sunny skies, charming lodging accommodations and first-rate hospitality. Four seasons abound in Big Bear, giving you four distinct backdrops to choose from. You may prefer to have your special day surrounded by glorious changing colors of maples, aspens and poplars in autumn, or a romantic setting of snow capped mountains in winter. A springtime wedding creates a pastel landscape with blossoming wildflowers and fruit trees, while summer months capture the embrace of whispering pines and brilliant blue skies. Nighttime is another option for you to exchange vows under starlit skies that sparkle like jewels.
