snow tubing

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

Nightly Snow Making and Grooming

When it is cold enough we make our own snow. Whether it’s natural or man made, you’ll have a fun packed day on our spacious snow play hill! Great snow making conditions at Big Bear Snow Play mean there’s plenty of beautiful, fluffy white snow for families to slide downhill on. Our recreation area sports powerful Lenko fan guns that blankets our hill.

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.

Eventually snow depths will tower 30 feet or more—that’s right, three stories high!— above the surrounding terrain, enough white stuff to ensure tubing through Easter and beyond.


Year-round fun

for the whole family!
