Four Season Fun
Snow Valley offers mountain biking, hiking, scenic chair rides, night skiing, and Southern California’s only chairlift-serviced sledding area.
Snow Valley has been a treasured destination since 1924 when the first “sling lift” was built in San Bernardino Mountains. Originally named “Fish Camp” for the pond located nearby, the hill quickly became a favorite among locals and beyond. Today the resort boasts Southern California's only six-person chairlift.
