Big Bear – Justin Beiber’s favourite resort – nestles high in California’s San Bernardino mountains, just two hours from LA airport. Skiing takes place on two mountains, connected by a short shuttle, offering 430 acres of excellent skiing for all standards and spectacular views of Big Bear Lake. As a party leader, it easy to supervise your group with all the amenities and entertainments being within a few miles radius of the lake and town. And when TinsleTown calls, you are close enough to enjoy Hollywood, Venice Beach and Universal Studios.
