I really wish I could be a snow bunny, but hey, guess I can’t have it all! Aka I went snowboarding for the first time in Big Bear and ate absolute SH*T! Not sure why my friends told me not to wear a helmet…
Back to it! So I went to Big Bear for the first time and I 10/10 recommend! This is a bucket-list must if you’re living in San Diego. It’s only a 2-hour drive from the sandy San Diego beaches to get to these mountains of snow! You really do have it all when you live in SD wink. I also highly recommend going sledding instead of snowboarding… JUST SAYIN.
Anyways, we stayed at the Holiday Inn Resort Lodge at Big Bear Lake. Which was perf since it took us less than 10 minutes to drive to rent snow gear, sled, and go to the snowboarding lifts!
We went into town and ate dinner at Oakside – such a quaint lil cabin restaurant!
And of course, we went sledding and snowboarding!
Biggest tip: make sure you’re drinking Bailey’s & Coffee nonstop. You’re welcome in advance. wink
