You don’t need to go to a ski resort to get the downhill thrill. There’s snow covering the San Bernardino Mountains all around Big Bear. What’s the catch? To get there requires a hike, knowledge and a sense of adventure. Sorry, no chairlifts available.
Sugarloaf, Butler Peak and yes, even ol’ Greyback, are favorite locations for Big Bear’s small but enthusiastic group of ski mountaineers.
