Welcome to Big Bear Lake

The purchase of Big Bear's two mountains – Snow Summit and Bear Mountain – by the owners of Mammoth Mountain ski resort in the Eastern Sierra has injected the town not only with money but also with new energy. The vibe has especially picked up in the downtown area, the Village, where upscale bars, restaurants and shops have opened.
