Snow Report

A snow report for areas in the Big Bear Mtn region is offered by a few different sources. Not to worry, though, if you’re visiting and notice the reports show little snow; each resort also manufactures snow to fill in when needed. This region, however, gets lots!

Note that in late fall, winter, and early spring, drivers should come prepared with chains for tires, even if arriving before the first snow of the year (or after the last one seems to have passed). Snow can come on very quickly and leave drivers without chains stranded. Avoid this hazard by bringing chains when you travel during these seasons.
