Despite a light spring dusting of snow earlier in the week, we have finally seen long awaited spring like temperatures and sunshine over the past few weeks. And with many schools beginning Spring Break at the end of the Friday school day, we can certainly anticipate a large number of visitors to enjoy our beautiful and welcoming mountain home this weekend and over the next week or so. The lake levels are rising and spring ski/snowboard conditions are excellent. Predictions are for chance of showers periodically off and on over the next week, but overall sunny days in the 50s should create the perfect environment for enjoying a wonderful stroll along the Alpine Pedal Path, or Village sidewalks, a sunny trip down one of the designated snow play hills, or a patio lunch at one of the many restaurants open for lunch.

Even with the warmer conditions individuals are still reminded to always carry chains and be advised parking is still prohibited on city streets. Also, as we look forward to another weekend, City staff will continue to work diligently to address the concerns that sprung from the heavy snowfall we experienced in January and February, prepare for high number of visitors, and will also continue to partner with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, California Highway Patrol, Caltrans and the U.S. Forest Service.

It is our supreme goal to provide the best service we can to our residents and we encourage you to contact us with any additional questions or concerns you may have. Additionally, please reference the list below of contacts to help guide you when help is needed:

The 2016-2017 winter months have brought the Big Bear community a record amount of precipitation which has been a welcome change to the drought Southern California has experienced in recent years. While all of the snowfall has been long overdue, residents and visitors are certainly ready to put away their heavy winter coats, put on a lightweight sweater and enjoy some sunshine filled days. As luck would have it, this weekend we are anticipating sunny days with temperatures in the 50s, creating the perfect environment for enjoying a wonderful stroll along the Alpine Pedal Path, or Village sidewalks, a sunny trip down one of the designated snow play hills, a patio lunch at one of the many restaurants open for lunch or spring snowboarding and ski conditions at the Resorts. In addition to the warm spring-like conditions, we will be springing forward early Sunday morning to welcome in the new season and longer days.

The 2016-2017 winter months have brought the Big Bear community a record amount of precipitation which has been a welcome change to the drought Southern California has experienced in recent years. Along with the snowfall, an influx of visitors, narrowed streets, power and utility issues, berm reduction concerns, dangerous road conditions, etc. have made for a challenging time. Last week’s preparations for a busy President’s Day Weekend and possible heavy rain/snow fall included making additional efforts to create the best scenario for our residents as well as our visitors. As we look forward to another weekend and potentially more snow, City staff will continue to work diligently to address the concerns of our residents, prepare for high number of visitors, and will also continue to coordinate with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, California Highway Patrol, Caltrans and the U.S. Forest Service to combat many of the concerns arising out of this winter’s precipitation. This weekend we will continue to:

  • Double the amount of law enforcement in order to direct traffic
  • Add additional Code Compliance personnel to assist with Private Home Rental enforcement
  •  Implementation of alternative parking for the mountain resorts not involving city streets or public lots
  • Additional law and code enforcement personnel are assigned to patrol areas of concern regarding snow play and illegal parking
  • Caltrans will be responsible for clearing all four lanes on Big Bear Blvd., allowing city Public Works crews the opportunity to concentrate on removing snow on city
  • streets
  • Arrangements have been made for additional tow companies to be available for towing of illegally parked cars on city streets; and all entrances to the city are being signed with “No Parking During Snow Conditions, Violators Will Be Towed” electronic message boards
