Weather

Weather in the Big Bear mountain region is very different from the climate in surrounding Southern California areas due to the elevation. Big Bear Lake, the main city for tourists, sits at an elevation of approximately 7,000 feet. Therefore, temperatures are cooler and precipitation is higher than areas below including nearby San Bernadino. The summers are hot, but even in August, you may find yourself needing a jacket in the evening.

If you are going skiing, snowboarding or tubing at Big Bear, it’s a good idea to stay on top of the weather. Here are sites to check for current Big Bear weather:
