Big Bear looks like a Christmas card thanks to a recent snow storm that blanketed the valley with almost a foot of new snow – and the timing was perfect. Snow Summit and Bear Mountain have opened up most of their runs and lifts, just in time for the holidays. The Big Bear winter season is off to a great start.
Let’s face it, whether you like it or not, Big Bear is a tourist town. As much as the locals may complain about the traffic and the crowds, most of us probably wouldn’t be here if not for the fact that Big Bear is a winter playground. Almost every business and service is tied into the tourist trade, one way or another.
Most lodging providers and retail establishments will earn up to 80% of their income over the winter months – and most of that over the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. When there’s snow on the ground it’s like white gold to the local economy.
So what does all this have to do with Big Bear real estate? Quite a bit, actually. The family that visits Big Bear for a ski trip will spend money locally on lodging, food, souvenirs, snow toys, and yes, even real estate. Many real estate purchases begin when a family on a Big Bear vacation contacts a local Realtor and inquires about a property they drove by or saw on your phone.
While you’re in Big Bear this winter, enjoying the fresh air and postcard scenery, contact the professionals at the Tim Wood Group. Maybe it’s time for you claim your own piece of Big Bear’s winter wonderland.
