Skiing anyone? part 2 – Ski Big Bear Mountain

Big Bear was a hidden gem. We drove through residential areas and came upon Ski Big Bear Mountain. Compared to Montage Mountain, Big Bear is a smaller, more intimate place. Affordable. Great for beginners and experienced alike. Mondays they close at 4:30, and they are closed Tuesdays & Wednesdays. When we first arrived we were at the top of the mountain near the lifts. There were instructors teaching kids how to snowboard and ski. The proximity to Golf Hill BNB makes it a great choice for a skiing, snowboarding or tubing while visiting.

We had lunch at Summit Restaurant in the lodge. They have an extensive menu. We ordered the burrata cheese plate, fried cheese plate, stuffed avocado and the Quesadilla to share. Everything was delicious. I enjoyed a Bloody Mary, also delicious. Many of the parents were sitting in the lodge warm inside, where they can watch their kids having fun outside.

We will definitely be back next season!

A fun, snowy time for this Florida based family, including skiing and Christmas with extended NEPA family.

Michelle and her lovely family stayed at Golf Hill BNB over the Christmas holiday. Visiting family, but taking time out to enjoy the scenery and to ski at Elk Mountain.

“Great location and host. We felt welcome in Tamra’s mountain home. Beautiful views of the mountains and golf course from the bedrooms, we even saw some deer grazing behind the house! Tamra’s ‘Guidebook’ was helpful in knowing what was available to do around the area. The Black and Brass Coffee shop, Laurel’s Hometown CafĂ©, and Yoga International Studio were three places we frequented and they were all less than 2 miles from the house. We had a wonderful time in NE Pennsylvania!”
