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, it is certainly understandable that everyone is ready to put away their heavy winter coats, put on a lightweight sweater and enjoy some spring-like conditions. 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. Even with the warmer conditions individuals are still reminded to always carry chains and 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 ongoing concerns that have come from this winter’s wet weather, 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.

Therefore, we will continue to:

  • Double the amount of law enforcement in order to direct traffic
  • Implement alternative parking for the mountain resorts not involving city streets or public lots
  • Code enforcement personnel are assigned to patrol areas of concern regarding snow play and illegal parking, there remains NO parking allowed on city streets
  • Arrangements have been made for additional tow companies to be available for towing of illegally parked cars on city streets

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:
