Snowshoeing the San Bernardino Mountains

Big Bear Lake Snowshoeing

On Tuesday and Thursday evenings when we can’t bike due to Winter weather, we will often snowshoe up the Bear Mountain ski runs to the top of the mountain range above Big Bear. Usually we do this in the dark with headlamps, but as the days get longer we sometimes are treated to spectacular sunsets and views almost all the way to the coast. Included is a panoramic view of the San Bernardino Mountains from the top of Silver Mountain at 8,564′. In the panorama to the left is San Gorgonio Peak, which is the highest point in Southern California at 11,501′. In the middle you can see Big Bear Lake, and to the right, Baldwin Lake at the East end of Big Bear Valley.

Note that in 2008 there are several events in the San Bernardino Mountains near Big Bear Lake Cabins at the Three Pines Lodge. I also included some of our other favorite endurance cycling events.
