About Us

Big Bear Snow Play, once a ski hill known as Rebel Ridge, sports the longest runs in Southern California, serviced by a Magic Carpet uphill lift that eliminates the tiring uphill struggle through snow. Lift-assisted inner tubing lets parents and children conserve their energy for the thrilling downhill twists and turns and not on walking uphill!

Day and Night Tubing

Natural and man-made snow combine to give a great base for inner tubing, building snowmen, and other family fun!

The former ski area known as Rebel Ridge, which introduced snowmaking to Southern California in the late 1950’ s, has been a family favorite for inner tubing through generations as parents who grew up sliding here are now bringing their kids. Now families can make memories there at night too, as Big Bear Snow Play opens for after dark tubing sessions Fridays, Saturdays and holiday periods from 5-9 pm.
