Snow Summit Resort - WinterSnow Summit Resort is the largest mountain in Big Bear. Not the tallest but the biggest with the most runs. "Summit" is a mixed use mountain with skiers and boarders riding next to each other. What makes Snow Summit so special, is how close is to Los Angeles. It has become the Southern California favorite and every weekend all through winter, the cars are coming up the hill to have some fun in the snow. Where else can you go to the beach or the snow on the same day?
Driving to Big Bear is very easy. It is about 1.5 hours from most locations in Los Angeles to the base of the mountains. It takes about and 30 minutes to climb the mountain and once you are up top, about 30 minutes to get to Big Bear. It's about the same to Lake Arrowhead, the neighbor to Big Bear.
