Snow Summit Ski Resort

Overview

Snow Summit is Southern California's home for year-round scenic getaways and outdoor experiences, with world-class skiing and snowboarding in the winter and mountain biking, hiking, and family-friendly base area activities in the summer. During the winter months (November-April), Snow Summit offers 240 acres of skiable terrain with lifts and trails for all ability levels. Drop in at 8,200 feet and experience the best that SoCal has to offer. The fun doesn't stop at Snow Summit. Check out Big Bear Mountain Resort's additional alpine venues, including Snow Valley and Bear Mountain.

The mountain resort sits at an elevation of 7,000 feet in the San Bernadino Mountains, grants access to varied terrain via 11 lifts and provides an average 100 inches of annual snowfall. The top elevation of 8,200 feet gives skiers and riders access to 1,200 feet of vertical drop. Other on-mountain activities include a tube park and night skiing.

Where Is Snow Summit Located?

Snow Summit’s base area rests within one mile of Big Bear Lake and is a two-hour drive from Los Angeles. Snow Summit is a convenient option for flyers thanks to its close proximity to Ontario International Airport, which is located 60 miles west of the ski area.
