Alpine Slide

The Alpine Slide Big Bear experience is one that creates lifetime memories for children, teens, and adults. In the summer, it becomes a water slide. In the winter, it transforms into an Alpine Slide. Riders go to the top of the hill on a small ski lift (though it seems large until you compare it to the Scenic Sky Chair lift at Bear Mountain).

Once at the top, passengers sit in the sled and use the handle in front to slow down or speed up as they glide down the curvy paths. There are two lanes, a fast lane and a slow lane, which prevents bottlenecks.

The same Big Bear mountain lot includes these activities side by side:

  • The Alpine Slide
  • Snow Play, an innertubing area that uses both fake and real snow
  • Go karts
  • Miniature Golf

In addition, there is an enclosed area with restrooms, food, beverages, and video games, plus a deck for outside lounging or dining. These activities are located very close to each other, only about 20 feet apart each. They share the same large parking lot. You can go back and forth from one to the other all day long.  For more information, visit:

Have a great time! Plan to spend at least half a day if not a full day on this lot. Also check the minimum ages on the site if you have young children. The lines can get long—the earlier you arrive, the less crowded it will be!
