Just as every summer, you will be able to take a ride on the Snow Summit Scenic Sky Chair and experience the most breathtaking views in all of Big Bear. The mile-long Scenic Sky Chair transports sightseers, hikers, and cross-country & downhill mountain bikers through the San Bernardino National Forest to an elevation of 8,200 feet. Sit back and enjoy the wildlife, flowers, panoramic views and clean mountain air during the relaxing 15-minute chairlift ride.
At the top you will find the most scenic BBQ in Big Bear, the View Haus! Stop by the View Haus and enjoy lunch on the deck while taking in the views of the valleys below and the surrounding mountains. You can take a short hike around the Mountaintop Trail, then hop back on the Scenic Sky Chair for a peaceful ride down, or if you’re feeling adventurous you can hike down our Log Chute Hiking Trail leading you back to the base area. Either way, you will enjoy spectacular views of Big Bear Lake and the entire valley.
All ages can take the ride, from infants to seniors and the disabled. Chairs can be stopped for loading and unloading with comfort bars on every chair. Sorry, no pets.
