Where to Find Winter in SoCal

Big Bear | California

A snowball fight is only a couple hours away from LA. Take a short little drive to Big Bear for cold air, colder beers, and beautiful mountain views. Grab an airbnb or pitch a tent in the summer.  With the mountains so close you could even ski in the morning, head back to LA and surf in the evening. For those who love a good find there's Big Bear Thrift & Treasure. Bring cash they don't accept cards! We walked away with the sweaters you see in the photos, but they also have a whole lot of unique finds! Thirsty? Big Bear Mountain Brewery is a restaurant/bar that offers local brews and sits walking distance to the water!


1) Bring Chains. This past year we got hit with some serious storms. 

2) Best place to catch the sunset is actually on the drive out! You'll whip around the outside of the mountain with vistas of the valley and other peaks in the distance! Find a little pull out, grab your camera and enjoy the sweeping views!
