Spring is a beautiful time of the year and Spring in California blesses the region’s flora with some of the most breathtaking sceneries and most pleasant days of the year. Big Bear Lake is most popular during the winter because of the ski resorts, flamboyant view, and location amidst mountains. During wintertime, visitors enjoy skiing, snowboarding and everything else in the picturesque winter wonderland. And in the summer once the weather warms up and the snow melts, the actual lake at Big Bear Lake becomes a popular attraction for boating, waterskiing and more. But the springtime is also a beautiful time to visit Big Bear. Besides being less crowded than the peak tourist seasons, here are our top reasons to visit Big Bear Lake this spring

Ideal Weather

Big Bear Lake is blessed with great weather conditions all around the year, with the area experiencing all four seasons. Springtime is especially enjoyable with daytime averages in the high 60’s or low 70’s, providing the perfect escape when southern California and the rest of the desert starts to heat up.

Enjoy mild sunshine during the day while sitting by the lake or taking a hike through the mountains or the nearby village. At nighttime, the weather cools down enough to make relaxing by a campfire the perfect way to end the day. 

Fewer Crowds

Since spring is the time of year when Big Bear Lake has fewer tourists, it becomes the perfect destination for people who are looking for an escape from their mundane urban lives. Fewer visitors mean more Big Bear Cool Cabin rentals available, shorter lines at restaurants and stores, and quieter hiking paths. For solo travelers, Big Bear Lake during this time of the year can be a great way to explore by yourself and enjoy the peace and quiet of the mountains.

Quiet Lake Days

In the summertime, Big Bear Lake is bustling with boats, jet skis and plenty of kids splashing around in the water. But in the spring, none of that is going on since the water is still chilly. This makes it the perfect time to enjoy the calm waters in a kayak or take a relaxing walk along the beach. The water is quiet enough that you can also go fishing and even catch dinner for the family that night! 

Local Celebrations and Festivals

Fewer visitors doesn’t mean that the fun stops in Big Bear! There are plenty of fun activities to enjoy, especially spring-specific events. On March 7th, the Special Olympics of Southern California hosts its annual Polar Plunge to raise funds. The weekend of April 24-25th is the Big Bear Comedy Festival, featuring some of the world’s funniest comedians performing in venues around Big Bear.
