Things To Do

Lake Arrowhead Skiing & Snowboarding

Nothing is more therapeutic for the body, mind, and soul than making a run down the side of a mountain through the fresh Southern California powder. Feeling the rush of the fresh, cool winter air as you excitedly carve down the hill at your favorite California ski resort is a seasonal treat that is hard to pass up. Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa, located 95 miles East of Los Angeles, is ideally situated within the San Bernardino National Forest amongst some of Southern California’s great ski resorts.

Snow Valley Mountain Resort

People don’t typically think of “SoCal” when it comes to cold weather, but Snow Valley Mountain Resort located in the San Bernardino Mountains is just roughly 90 minutes east of Los Angeles and is known as one of the largest, most relaxed resorts in the region.

Here, visitors will find 1,041 feet of vertical drop with a summit at 7,841 feet and a base at 6,800 feet. The longest run on the mountain is one mile, and there’s a variety of lifts, with more than 240-acres of terrain. Plus, there’s even night skiing on weekends.

Day trip from SoCal or plan an entire weekend in nearby Big Bear or Lake Arrowhead. One fabulous lodging option nearby is the Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa which typically partners with Snow Valley Resort each season to offer lodging packages and specials to make for an even more enjoyable trip.

The Perfect Place for Families

From the steeps of Slide Peak to long cruising intermediate trails to the region’s best beginner terrain to Southern California’s only chairlift serviced sledding area, Snow Valley has something for everyone during winter. In addition to our fantastic terrain, Snow Valley’s award winning Learning Centers offer lessons for all ability levels and ages.
