Visitor Reviews of Big Bear Mountain

HCSC from United States writes:

Whole mountain is one huge fun snowboard park. Add the mostly sunny & warm weather.
It doesn't get much better if you like riding parks.
Closest real airport is actually Ontario.
Avoid weekends if you can... it gets crazy with all the people from LA coming up
