Big Bear was terrible. I only wanted to go there because I thought it would'nt be crowded. It was so crowded because it was extremely small. The ski rentals took about 2 hours. There werent any challenging trails. and the worst part was there was only 3 ski lifts so the lines were so long with everyone pooring into them. After all my years of sking I have never gone to a worst place. Don't go to Big Bear you will regret it!!!
