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 AND plenty of other year round activities perfect for the whole family, so no matter what time of year you plan to visit, there will be something for you to enjoy!
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 the snow stops, Big Bear Snow Play offers a super fun ropes course for anyone over 42" in height. Challenge yourselves and explore over 30 obstacles 12 to 35 feet in the air on their self-guided ropes course!
If THAT wasn't enough, the Speedway is where you can race your friends and family around the super fun and curvy speedway track in their high tech go-karts.
It's an adventure of a lifetime waiting for YOU at Big Bear Snow Play!

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