If you follow me on Instagram, you likely know that last weekend I went for a skiing day trip to Snow Valley Mountain Resort! I grew up skiing at Snow Valley and really sharpened my skills there over the years. I remember some years where I skied this mountain practically every weekend.
Since Snow Valley Mountain Resort has such a special place in my heart, I thought it would be fun to share some details about it so that my SoCal followers can visit! Also, I want to note that in no way am I affiliated with Snow Valley. I paid for my lift tickets myself and wanted to share this place with you since I love it.
Located between Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear in the town of Running Springs, Snow Valley is a family-owned ski resort — one of the last of it’s kind in California. While a smaller mountain, I’ve always loved how family oriented it is and how it’s a little quieter than other resorts in the area. In addition, it’s a great place for beginners to learn how to ski, however, even as an advanced skier, I still enjoy it.
I love getting to Snow Valley early and skiing as many runs as I can until noon. Then it’s time for a quick lunch at my car and back to the mountain to ski some more.
With regular adult lift tickets priced at $72 and only slightly higher on holidays, Snow Valley is a more affordable option for a ski trip! While parking costs $10, you even get this money back when you purchase your lift tickets!
The mountain also offers a snow play area where you can go sledding! While I’ve never done this, it looks fun!
