Travel deal: You can get a 10% discount on Big Bear Lake lodgings over Labor Day and beyond

Big Bear Lake

Big Bear Lake offers visitors who stay at the mountain resort town a discount on summer activities like a round of golf or a ride on Snow Summit’s lift.

Still deciding where to go for a late summer escape? You'll receive 10% off your stay in Big Bear Lake and receive additional discounts on a scenic sky chair ride to the top of Snow Summit ski resort or nine holes of golf at the base of Big Bear Mountain.

The deal

(Big Bear Mountain Resorts)

Big Bear Lake resort is about 100 miles east of Los Angeles in the San Bernardino Mountains. It's a good place to find cool weather in the dog days of summer. Minimum stays are required for the 10% discount, and they vary by property. You must book a stay to receive the golf and sky chair discount prices too.

The Stay & Ride Sky Chair package discounts the cost of the ride on the sky chair that takes about 15 minutes and offers wide views of Mt. San Gorgonio and the San Bernardino Mountains. The chair is open daily now through Labor Day (Sept. 7) and weekends from Sept. 11 to Oct. 25.

The Stay & Golf Discount package is good for $5 off nine holes of golf at Bear Mountain Golf Course, which is located at 7,000 feet. (This package isn't available Labor Day weekend.)

Weekend Escape: Chill out at Big Bear Lake


The offer is good through Oct. 25.


(Rosemary McClure / Los Angeles Times)

I found availability for a wide range of condos, cabins and even tree houses for Labor Day weekend with the Sky Chair package. For example, a cabin at Shore Acres Lodge at 40090 Lakeview Drive and two rides cost $573 for a stay from Sept. 4 to 7.
