After a winter filled with snow and slopes, Big Bear Mountain Resort has everything you need to celebrate spring and enjoy the good ol’ outdoors this weekend with Bear Break 2019.

Opening on Friday and lasting through the weekend, the event comes complete with themed activities perfect for shedding your winter coat. Tube Racing, live music, and water skiing are just some fun activities. 

Here are some of the other ways Big Bear will help you get out of hibernation:

  • Retro Little Air Contest & Pond Skim
  • Prize giveaways
  • Live music with DJ SlipMatt
  • Relay Racing & Pond Skims

Each of these contests are open to all ages. While registration is free for the live music and tube racing, visitors will need to buy a pass for some of the other events. Adults will be able to enjoy "after hours" activities later in the day, including a mechanical bull and beer pong.

Looking farther ahead into the season, the Big Bear Mountain Base area will close after daily operations on April 7. After that point, all winter activities will move over to the Snow Summit area of the resort, which will be open through Easter Sunday on April 21.
