Where are we going today?

Big Bear Snow Play was once a ski facility, but now offers the longest snow tube runs in the Southern California, serviced by a fully enclosed Magic Carpet lift!

Lift-assisted inner tubing lets parents and children conserve their energy for the thrilling downhill twists and turns and not on walking uphill! Natural and man-made snow combine to give a great base for inner-tubing, building snowmen and other family fun for all ages. Winter recreation area means snow stays off guets while they ride.

When it is cold enough we make our own snow. Whether it's natural or man made, you'll have a fun packed day on our spacious snow play hill using up to 8 different runs. Great snowmaking conditions at Big Bear Snow Play mean there’s plenty of beautiful, fluffy white snow ready to make your mark on!

When can we go?

Everyday from 10am to 4pm except Christmas day we are open from 11am to 4pm.

Any Top Tips?

Pets are not allowed to pass the snow gate. Dress for winter weather! As always, the best way to stay warm is to dress in layers, which allows the removal of clothing if you become warm, and the addition of clothing if the temperature drops. Bring sunscreen, lip balm and skin moisturisers as the sun reflects strongly off the snow in all weathers..

Can I get one of those?

Great photo opportunities to be had, with the space age looking clear lift tunnels bisecting the sparkling snow..

More information

All riders will be required to review and sign an electronic release of liability and assumption of risk waiver at the ticket booth before tubing, and those individuals under age 18 will need the additional signature of a parent or legal guardian..

    Fun place to tube. Cash only $25 each. We've been a few times and just like the slopes it gets very crowded on weekends. They make their own snow too, so if you can't find a free place with snow this is a good choice.

    What makes it different than the one on the other side of Big Bear Boulevard? Their tubes have vinyl covers on them that help keep snow from creeping into your pants and make the tubes easier to handle and seem to make them faster. They open up another magic carpet weather and crowd permitting. (Magic carpets take you to the top...Read More

    Very Crowded and not enough tubes for all. The parking lot wasn't half full and it was too crowded. The wait in line was like 15-20 min. per slide if you could find an inner tube.

Their tubes have vinyl covers on them that help keep snow from creeping into your pants and make the tubes easier to handle and seem to make them faster. They open up another magic carpet weather and crowd permitting. (Magic carpets take you to the top so you don't have to climb/walk.)

The people that work there seem to be bored out of their minds and unenthusiastic but you only deal with them when you buy the tickets and walk in the gates.

They have an indoor heated area to eat with bathroom. Haven't ever tried any of the food.
