Big Bear Snow Gallery This is a gallery of pictures I took a couple years …
Big Bear Snow 20, a picture out the side of the car as we passed by the lake in Big Bear during the snow fall. This is from a couple years ago.

Big Bear Snow 19, a picture of my boy Scotty (Happy Birthday, buddy!). We stopped off on the way out of town by the lake to goof in the snow a little bit. This was a couple years ago. He had volunteered to drive me up so he could test his car on the mountain roads, but neither of us expected to run into snow. Here’s he lobs a snowball, considering whether or not to throw it at me. We were both dressed in shorts and t-shirts, not set for the snow at all, but at least he had a hat, lol. I miss that “For Rent” t shirt he had, lol. Last note, we had a delicious pizza cooling off in the car too, couldn’t wait to get to that, so we didn’t play long.

Big Bear Snow 18, a view off to the side of the road to hokes being blanketed by fresh snow as we make pour way up Big Bear mountain. We really didn’t expect to hit any snow, but we did find it. For a Southern Californian who lives in the flatlands, it’s a rare treat to be in the midst of a snow storm. Beauty of Southern California though is you can be in the snow, and an hour later be at the beach, and anything else in between the two.

Big Bear Snow 17, a picture of some of the ski operations in Big Bear ramping up for business as a fresh blanket of snow falls. We were passing by a couple years ago not expecting snow. Surprise!

Big Bear Snow 16, another as we travel deeper into the snow fall, my boy Scotty and I. I had to return up the hill, having been up there the prior day, which was sunny and warm with zero snow falling or on the ground. Scotty volunteered to drive me up because he wanted to test his car and his mountain driving skills. We did not expect snow at all.

Big Bear Snow 15, a look down the road towards our destination. Thankfully I didn’t drive, because I would have missed so much beauty and not been able to shoot so many pics!

Big Bear Snow 13, another picture of one of the not quite open, but soon booming ski slopes in Big Bear as we drove past.

Big Bear Snow 12 is maybe my favorite picture from this trip. You see the sun poking through the snow dropping clouds and the ski lift in the background which means visitors will soon be coming to hit the slopes. This helps drive their local economy, but this day there were no skiers that I saw.
