Year round family recreation area. The Alpine Slide attraction is California's only authentic bobsled ride. Take a scenic chairlift ride to the top, then hop on a specially designed sled and control your own speed down a 1/4 mile long track. In the summer enjoy our refreshing double Water Slide and in the winter tube on our Snow Play hill with Magic Carpet uphill lift. We also offer Go-Karts and an 18 hole miniature golf course. Our newly renovated building has plenty of indoor seating and an expanded snack bar. An outdoor patio, Water Slide deck and many grass areas allow for plenty of relaxing. Parents pay only if you play!

We came to Big Bear this weekend just to sled and ride the Alpine Slide. What a great time. The slide was fast and fun!

Lot's of family and nothing but smiles and laughter all around. Come early though, it's gets crowded fast. We arrived at 10 AM when it opens and by... More

We headed up to Big Bear for a one day snow tubing adventure. We got a few runs in as soon as they opened, but the place got so packed after an hour that it became a miserable experience. It was completely disorganized with a huge bottleneck at the top of the hill. They finally put in Disney-style switchback lines... More

We we're a group of 8. Two families. Our relatives first visit to the snow. They loved it. The slide activity is for everyone with good health and reflexes...lol. Our kids enjoyed this activity for hours.

Went during the week (weekday) in December. Complete mess. Parking is a joke. Seems completely disorganized.
