What to Expect in September at Snow Summit - 1:47pm, 9/2/2014

At Big Bear Mountain Resorts we always get excited when September rolls around. A lot of activities are going on as we start to make the transition from summer into fall. The days are warm, the nights are cool, the air is brisk and the leaves on the tree’s start to put on a show.

Hikers at Snow Summit
Our Scenic Sky Chair is running daily until September 14th, and at that time the Sky Chair will be operating Fri-Sun only until the winter weather comes. Taking hikers and mountain bikers alike to the top of the Snow Summit, our Scenic Sky Chair allows hikers to enjoy a nice walk along the skyline or make their way down the face of the mountain on the famous Log Chute Hiking Trail. As many of your know Snow Summit has partnered with the Big Bear Discovery Center to offer Guided Eco-Tours. These tours are led by a Southern California Mountains Foundation Naturalist and provide a great learning experience about the flora and fauna of Beautiful Big Bear. 

Bikers have lots of options as well, the down-hill mountain bikers have some cool challenging trails to choose from. While the cross-country bikers can access the long, smooth forest service roads which will be sure to provide lots of adventures for everyone.

You still have time for tee at The Bear Mountain Golf Course! This 9 hole golf course offers a driving range, our delicious golf course grill and pro-shop with golf cart and club rentals available. As we make our way into the latter part of  September, early morning tee times may get pushed back depending on frost

We’re finally in August and excited for the next 3 months to go by quickly! To feel the cold wind rush past, the fresh powder slide underneath, and fly down the runs at crazy speeds.
