Snow Summit Trail is a 3 mile out and back trail located near Big Bear City, California and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from August until January. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
Interesting to hike around the chair lifts. Going up in tennis shoes was fine but coming down it was slippery.
Beautiful hike, steep in places. Nice and private, we only saw a few other hikers on the trail. We hiked the Log Chute trail to the top and enjoyed a great lunch and view.
Perfect summer hike from base to the top of the trail where you can treat yourself to refreshments and bbq at View Haus for having completed the uphill climb. The hiking trail surprised me as steeper than expected, especially in certain spots. It was fairly dusty and hot (August weather). I couldn't find anything that actually marked the true distance, but approx 3 miles total out and back is my guess. Just jog around the base a bit or to the resort directly from wherever you're staying in the area if you want to make it a longer distance workout.
Walking up and down snow summit is definitely moderate to hard Trail name is Summit run
I would recommend this mountain resort to any beginner to snowboarder or skier. Very nice day at the slopes
