This is sledding on steroids. Race down the slopes in an inner tube, ride the Magic Carpet moving walkway back to the top, and keep going! On Friday, Saturday, and holiday nights there is even a glow tubing event that incorporates neon lights turning into flashing colors as you speed down the slopes. This is fun for all ages and a great way to get your exercise laughing in the snow.
BIG BEAR AIRPORT
Head to the Big Bear Airport and lift off over the mountains on a scenic helicopter tour. The helicopter has a capacity for you, 2 friends, and of course the pilot.
I have done the tour before and can say it is amazing. You get to see views of Big Bear you didn’t know exist. The tour brings you over alpine lakes, waterfalls, and dives down into scenic valleys. You can book your trip at the Big Bear Airport.
