Place your reservations today! At Big Bear Mountain Resorts we limit ticket sales in order to reduce lift lines, and to keep runs and lodge areas comfortable. On peak weekends and holidays, we recommended you reserve your tickets and/or lessons a few days in advance. If you are unable to use your tickets on the day of your reservation, your order will be kept in our system until you are ready to use them, however a new reservation is still necessary (no additional charge). Purchase your Lift Tickets online at bigbearmountainresorts.com. To purchase lift tickets and/or lessons by phone, please call 844-GO2-BEAR.
